Second Chance Grading & Color-Coding Assignments
To activate the color-coding feature in OnCourse Classroom, the assignment has to be connected to OnCourse Grade Book. To do this, check the Add to Grade Book box (located in the bottom, left corner of the Settings tab) when creating an assignment. Then Save and Publish the assignment.
You can color-code Classroom assignments by right-clicking anywhere on the student row, then choose from the available choices. You have the ability to mark an assignment Late, Missing, or Incomplete. You can even choose a custom color, if you'd like. The system even lets you create a Second Chance Grade.
Since the Add to Grade Book box was checked, the assignment, student grades, and any color-coding will be visible in OnCourse Grade Book as well. And, if later you color-code a student grade in OnCourse Grade Book, you will be able to see it in OnCourse Classroom too.
Block Auto-Grading for Selected Students
Teachers now have the ability to block auto-grading for individual students. To do this, check the box next to the student that you would like to block, and select Block Autograding for Selected Students from the Actions menu. Doing so will change the auto-grade icon color from gray to red.
When the student completes the assignment and turns it in, you can see that the assignment was submitted, however, it will not be graded.
If edits are made in the Assignment Grader, grades for individual questions will change, but the overall grade will not. To enter a grade for the blocked student, either manually input a grade or restore auto-grading. To restore auto-grading, check the box next to the student that you would like to unblock, and select Restore Autograding for Selected Students from the Actions menu.
