What are the basics of marking assessments
Please note that at the end of the final marking period (two weeks after the end of the Trimester) ACOM will export grades from Moodle. You can assist us in this process by ensuring that your gradebook is complete. This means that all submissions have been graded1 and when looking at the gradebook:
1] Note that according to our Student Handbook (see section "Late Submission Policy"), any assignments submitted past 10 days after the due date will be accepted for purposes of meeting the requirement for submission, but will receive a zero mark and will NOT be annotated by the marker.
2] These are as opposed to quiz or forum type assessments.
3] For details on marking forums watch our tutorial How do I grade forums?
