When attending the Online Conference last Spring, I remember learning that the best place to grade and offer feedback on quizzes/discussions/assignments is in the tab for that item, rather than in the grade book. We were told that grading and creating feedback in the content location would push it to the grade book and the student could view it in either location. Whereas, grading and creating feedback in the grade book would not push the information out and thus feedback would only be available for viewing in the grade book. I hope that is clear. :)
However, this semester I just finished grading a quiz and offering personalized feedback from the Quiz setting in the course. I went to the grade book to make sure it had posted and no grades or feedback had been pushed forward. Thus, I am getting ready to copy all the information into the grade book from the original quiz. Please advise me on this issue so that I won't have this time consuming problem again. Additionally, my students are not getting their feedback as quickly as I would have liked.
Thanks so much!
