Delegated Grading allows you to assign grading to another instructor or teaching assistant in your course to help you grade. You can divide up the grading tasks among teaching assistants or other graders, which can be useful for large classes. Delegated grading promotes reliability, improves consistency, and helps and removes bias. You can also assign blind graders, who cannot see each other’s’ ratings. Each grader provides separate grades, feedback and notes to students. Users with the ability to reconcile grades may review all the grades given to a submission and set the official grade for the attempt. By default, instructors have reconciling abilities.
