Automated Grading


Note: Some institutions do not make scores visible to students in PlayPosit.

In this article:

When a learner completes a bulb, they are presented with their score on the assignment.  However, not all question types can be automatically graded by PlayPosit.

The Current Score is calculated by assigning 0 points to any questions that can not be automatically graded.  Once the course instructor grades those questions, scores will be updated.

Each question type has a default weight:

  • Multiple choice: 1 pt
  • Check all that apply: 1 pt
  • Fill-in-the-blank: 1 pt
  • Free response: 3 pts

To adjust the default weights for bulbs, instructors can go to their User Profile page. More information on the User Profile is available in this help article.

Automated vs Manual Scoring

All interaction types have the ability to be graded! Multiple choice, check all, and fill in the blank are all automatically graded. Reflective pause, web embed, polling survey, and discussion forum all have the ability to be automatically graded once you change the point value to greater than 0. To learn more about how to change the point value on interactions, click here.

Free response interactions and discussion interactions have the option to be manually or automatically graded. To learn more about how to set up a manually graded discussion forum, click here. To learn more about how to score manually graded interactions, click here.

Manually Export Grades to LMS

As an instructor, you will need to manually export grades if your bulb included free response questions or if you adjusted students' scores by hand.

  1. Log in to your LMS and open the relevant bulb.
  2. Click on MONITOR.

  3. At the top of the Monitor page, click SYNC GRADES.

  4. Click CHECK SYNC STATUS on the drop-down menu to check the status of the student grade export. It may take a few minutes to push all updated scores into the gradebook.
