How to correct open-ended answers

If a task has open-ended questions, when you receive student submissions you must correct the answers before getting the final grade.

You can find all pending correction submissions in the Submissions tab of each group, by using the Correction filter with the value Only pending correction. You will see a list of all the submissions you still haven't corrected and you can correct them by clicking on each element of the list


When you open the student's submission, you will see that open questions have an additional box where you can indicate if the answer is correct or incorrect. Click on the option you want in each of the open questions and, once they are all corrected, click on the Correct submission button and the final grade of the worksheet will be calculated and displayed.

If an answer is not completely correct, you can modify the score that will be assigned to it. For example, you can assign it a score of 0.7 out of 1. This assigned score will appear in the bottom-right part of the field.
