The LabArchives Assignment Navigator
At the top of a student’s notebook, you will see the Assignment navigation tool. This allows you to switch between students in a specific course and section (if applicable) for a specific assignment. You can also view different assignments within a course for any given student.
When you navigate to an assignment to be graded, you will see the Assignment Entry:
Student names: This field allows you to navigate student notebooks in your course. You can click on the next or previous buttons (students are listed in alphabetical order) or you can click on the drop-down arrow to see a list of all the students in the course or in a specific section, if applicable.
Go to assignment: This drop-down list allows you to select an assignment for a specific course for a selected student. This allows you to remain in the same assignment when toggling among your students.
Assignment Status: After selecting an assignment in the “Go to Assignment” filter, you can filter by different assignment statuses: Assigned to Student, Submitted to Instructor, and Graded. The Submitted to Instructor option will show all students’ submitted assignments for grading. Once you grade a student’s assignment, they will no longer appear on the list.
Course: If you have more than one course, you can switch to another course which will change the list of students, sections, and assignments that can be viewed within the Assignment Navigator.
Section: This allows you to view students in All sections, No sections, or in specific sections for your course. This field will not display if you do not create sections for your course. TAs will see My Section when they are assigned to a section of the course by default.
Input a Grade, then click
