Bb Tip #103: Inline Grading for Assignments

Inline Assignment Grading enhances the grading experience for instructors. You can view, comment, and grade student-submitted assignment files without leaving the Grade Assignment page.

When you view a document submitted in an assignment, that document is converted to a format that is viewable inside the web browser. The converted document is displayed in a viewer on the Grade Assignment page. Formatting and embedded images of the original document are preserved in the conversion. Annotation tools enable instructors to provide feedback -- comments, highlights, and even drawing -- directly on the inline view of the document. Inline grading allows for full screen editing, and brings the sidebar to all gradable items like blogs, wikis, discussions and journals.

Note: Supported document types that can be used with inline grading are Word (doc, docx), PowerPoint (ppt, pptx), Excel (xls, xlsx), and PDF (pdf).
