Available for Grader

This article is about the basic functionality for explanation of the candidate's final grade. 

The graders can send explanation of grades to candidates by using Explanation tool. You can write explanations from scratch and/or add your private notes you have made during the grading process. The explanation will not be shared until you click Send to candidate.  

The explanation can be edited by all graders in the committee, or if committees are not used, all graders. The explanations are not private to you. When a grader creates or updates an explanation, the grader's name and the time of last change will be added, and visible for all graders. 

Remember before sending explanations to candidates: 

  • You are sending the explanation on behalf of all graders.
  • Explanations can only be sent once.
  • Once shared, explanations cannot be withdrawn, edited or deleted
Note: The test must have status Graded before explanations can be sent to candidates. All graders and committees must have confirmed final grading.
