What is an Online Assessment and how is it different from a Gradebook entry?

There are generally 2 ways in which student grades can be entered into Markboard:

  • Online Assessment
  • Gradebook Entry

Online Assessment

An Online Assessment is an assessment that is created in Markboard for students to take online in their Chalk student account. Assessments are graded and returned back to students, either automatically or manually depending the assessment settings. Grades are then recorded in Markboard.

Gradebook Entry

A Gradebook Entry is a grade that is entered manually into Markboard by a teacher. This entry can be in one of the following styles: score, binary, rubric and observation. A Gradebook Entry cannot be taken by a student online, as this is strictly a way for teachers to enter grades into Markboard manually. This way a teacher can enter scores of an assessment that was taken offline.
