Grading with the Free Plan

With the CodeHS Free Plan, you can grade student submissions one at a time from your Code Review Dashboard using Grade Mode or from a specific student's Assignment page.

Grade Mode lets you visit assignments one at a time, give a grade, and be automatically redirected to the next submission.  

You can also grade student work by visiting the student's assignment and clicking on the Grade tab. You can then easily switch to view other students' submissions.

Grading Quizzes with the Free Plan

Quizzes are graded and scored automatically. Click on a quiz from a student's assignment page to view their grade. Each question will display correct and incorrect answer choices for the student.

Selecting Hide Questions will hide the questions from the student's view and only display their score (as the teacher, you will still see the questions):

Grading With CodeHS Pro

Grading Settings

The Grading Settings tool allows you to be more selective about which submissions you want to manually review and grade and which submissions you want to be automatically graded.

If "Auto" is selected, once an assignment passes all the Test Cases, it will be awarded full credit. If you select "Teacher," once a student submits their exercises it will show up for you to grade in Grade Mode and Fast Grade.

Fast Grade

Fast Grade is a great tool for working through submissions quickly. View student code and solution code side-by-side, send feedback, and assign a grade all in one window. You can access the Fast Grade tool within the Code Review app.

The Gradebook app makes it easy to grade exactly how you want on CodeHS and easily keep on top of student grades. You can adjust the view of your Gradebook, view and adjust grades by student or Assignment, and configure your grading settings.
