What is grade mode?

Grade mode is a tool in CodeHS that helps you assign grades to exercises in your submission queue.

How do I get to Grade Mode?

From your Code Review dashboard, scroll down to your student submissions. There will be a button for Grade Mode.

How do I use Grade Mode?

Grade Mode will take you through your student submissions in the order that the exercises were submitted. You can view and run the code in editor, and to assign a grade, click on the "Grade" tab.

You will see a small purple icon that shows whether or not you're in Grade Mode

Here you can assign a grade by selecting either "Award Full Credit", "Give Zero", "Mark Finalized", or "Mark Needs Work". 

  • "Award Full Credit" automatically gives the submission maximum points and marks it as Finalized
  • "Give Zero" automatically gives the submission 0 points and marks it as Finalized
  • "Mark Finalized" requires a score in the score input (which defaults to 0) and will give the submission a score you inputted and finalizes the submission
  • "Mark Needs Work" requires a score in the score input (which defaults to 0) and will give the submission the score you inputted and mark the submission as Needs Work. 

All options will also include the message you write to the student in the Student Feedback box. 

Once you submit the grade, you will automatically be taken to the next submission in your grading queue. Note: This grade will be available for the student view in their Grade tab. Learn more.
