Grading Video Assignments Overview

Within the Video Assignment tool, you will access the Gradebook to assess student work (please review the resources below for more details). This grade item will automatically be created and synced with the Falcon Online Grades after the first student has been assessed from within the Video Assignment tool.

To manually assign and associate a grade item, follow these steps:

  1. View the Video Assignment from the Content area
    1. If you haven't added it to the Content area, use the Existing Activities button to add the Video Assignment to the appropriate module
  2. In the bottom right, you should see an "Assessment" menu where you can create or associate a grade item
  3. Now you should see this grade item in the Grades area associated with "External Learning Tools", which is the Video Assignment

Important Note: When grading with Rubric, you may see a discrepancy between the grade in Bongo, and your LMS grade book with some grades. In Bongo, we calculate the grade to a percent. Since LTI specifications only allow for two places when sending the grade, we send only the value to the left of the decimal, and drop anything to the right.
