Connecting Marking Configuration Options to Subjects

Updated on May 17, 2022

In this section of the manual, you will see how all the previous sections connect in order to apply Descriptive Marking to your Institutions Subjects. You are also able to create a subject with Descriptive Marking and enrolling all your students in it (This suggestion is only for cases where you want to evaluate all your students with an overall Descriptive Marking Criterion).

You need to go to the Subjects page to view your existing subjects and/or create new subjects. Follow the path: Dashboard > Configuration > Main Settings > SubjectsàSubject List (Figure 22).
