Changing the Marking Preference

By following the steps below, you can use the Marking preference to determine whether students in the class can mark paper exercises and tests using AccelScan software in Pupil Mode or using Renaissance Responders or NEO 2.

For both online and paper assignments, you can also determine whether the student's next practice will generate automatically when students mark their current practices. (The next practice can be generated automatically if the student has objectives in the Ready to Work stage.)

The Marking preference is a class preference. You can only choose settings for one class at a time, but you can choose different settings for different classes.

Who can do this with default capabilities?

School Network/RP Administrators, School Administrators and Teachers

  1. On the Home page, click Accelerated Maths, then Preferences. If you have access to more than one school, use the School drop-down list to choose a school. If you have more than one class, click the Class drop-down list and select a class.

  2. Click Marking in the list.
  3. On the Marking Preference page, you will see two tick boxes. Tick the first box if you want the software to automatically generate the next practice for each student in your class after the student completes or marks the current practice. (This does not apply to practices that teachers mark in the Assignment Book using Keyboard Mark.)
  4. The second box sets whether students can mark their own paper exercises or tests (in addition to practices) using the AccelScan software in Student mode or using Renaissance Responders or NEO 2s. If you do not allow students to mark their own exercises and tests using these methods, teachers can still mark them by scanning outside of Student Mode or using Keyboard Mark in the Assignment Book.
  5. Even if you allow students to mark their own paper exercises and tests, please note that students cannot mark free-response assignments.

    Note: If you want to return this preference to the default settings, click Default. When you choose the default settings, both boxes will be ticked.

    This preference has no effect on marking paper exercises or tests online in the Accelerated Maths software. It also does not affect whether students can mark practices or exercises when they enter the Accelerated Maths software through Renaissance Home Connect; for that, use the Renaissance Home Connect preference.
