Marking an attempt
Using the marking page to input comments and feedback, as well as awarding marks normally and in a mark scheme.
Video walkthrough for admins
In an exam that meets all the criteria above, navigate to the user table. Select the attempt you wish to mark. There are several marking states an attempt can be in:
See the image below for how to start marking an attempt. You can only mark one attempt at a time but you can bulk complete, finalise and release results using the select all checkbox in the top left of the user table.
Once a student has submitted their exam attempt, it becomes ready to be marked. All attempts ready to be marked will show a status of Submitted and marks as Unmarked.
Select the attempt you want to mark, and use the pencil icon on the right hand side to open the marking modal.
Selecting an attempt to mark
From the marking modal, you'll see questions eligible for marking noted with a blue dot. From here markers can award credits, and leave feedback comments for users to view in the question feedback.
The feedback box contains a rich text editor, so you can leave links, photos, tables, lists and even videos as feedback for candidates
Using a mark scheme works essentially the same way except marks are inputted separately into the different awarding areas. See our mark scheme docs for more on creation
Once all questions have been given marks the status will move to Completed. When you're ready you can select these results to finalise, using the checkbox and and tick icon. You can use the tick boxes to select multiple or all attempts.
Marks about to be finalised
Once marks are finalised no further changes can be made. The final step is to select all the finalised attempts you want to release and use the release results button. This will give students access to their results, feedback and anything else on the results page.
Marks about to be released
Students get a detailed view of each question from their exam attempts question page. Where a mark scheme has been used or comments left, they can see exactly what marks (points) they achieved

Educators can mark attempts in basically the same way as admins, they have all the same controls and options. The only difference how they find the attempts to mark. Educators must first find the user group, then the exam, then users table from there
- Go to users
- Select the group that sat the exam
- Go to exams from the group sub menu
- Select the exam
- Go to the users table
- Select attempt to mark
