Correct test question by question instead of student by student

It would be much less time consuming and allow teachers to be more consistent if they could correct one questions for all students at the same time, then go on to the next question, etc.  For example, question 10 is open response and worth 5 points, teacher sees answer and awards points on all Question 10 answers then moves on to Question 11 etc.

    This is a great idea that we hear from time to time, especially valid when correcting long free text answers.  Our product owner for the new test tool has been aware of this need for quite a while, but we have not been able to prioritize it due to so many other things that needs to happen with the new test tool. We will not forget you request, and we will consider it in our work with the test tool.

    After rewriting the test tool and now also the assessment page, it is now possible for teachers to assess question by question.

    Hi, we have this planned for the new shareable test tool that we´re working on. Not sure it´ll make it in the first version though. The GAP between the present and the new test tool is for the moment to big in order to for us to release the new test tool to all you existing customer/user, but when time comes you´ll of course be the first to know :-)

    I would like to update my comment from April. Rather than vertically, answers should be displayed in a horizontal row. Each answer could for example occupy one-third of the screen width. Especially long answers could be read by scrolling down. Marks are given by clicking once on a vertical "point-ruler" situated beside the middle and active answer. The pointruler adapts to max point for question; a six points question would correspond to a 0-6 ruler, clicking in the middle would assign 3 points, etc... When graded, all questions shift automatically one position to the left, so that middle and active answer is now the next student in line. This design would save time and, as other users comment, improve marking consistency and quality.

    This would be a *huge* time saver and would improve consistency of grading.

    I agree wholeheartedly with this suggestinos for three reasons:

    1. Question-by-question marking makes it easier to grade questions consistently and correctly
    2. If multiple answers are available in an array on a single page it will make marking much faster and eliminate mouse-clicks.
    3. If using a click-ruler for each answer in an array/table of answers, grading questions could become a breeze. For the last example I have made a screenshot-sketch (attached).
