Once one or more students have opened a grade inquiry for a specific assignment, the grader/instructor will be notified (including via email if enabled) and the status will be displayed from the main “Gradeables” page:
Pressing that button will show details where there is a bold message displaying the number of grade inquiries that are pending.
Then clicking the blue ‘Index of Grading Details for All Students’ button will display information for all students. Students with a pending grade inquiry will have a red ‘Grade Inquiry’ button next to their name.
Pressing that button will bring you to the TA grading interface. There will be one tab with an exclamation mark meaning there is a pending grade inquiry.
There is matching yellow grade inquiry panel:
Here you can type and post a response that resolves the grade inquiry (first blue button). Alternatively, you can type and post a comment but leave the grade inquiry open (unresolved). Or, you can also close or resolve the grade inquiry without a response by pressing the white ‘Close Grade Inquiry’ button.
Note: All graders with access to view and grade this student can review these messages and participate in this private discussion.
Reopening Grade Inquiries
If a grade inquiry was prematurely closed or resolved the grader can reopen the grade inquiry by pressing the blue ‘Reopen Grade Inquiry’ button.
Submitting a Grade Inquiry for a Student
A grader can also initiate or open a grade inquiry for a student by navigating to the TA Grading Interface, finding the regrade panel, and pressing the blue ‘Submit Grade Inquiry’ button. This option is useful when a student initiates a grade inquiry or regrade request via email or in person during office hours.
