Kami's Grade by Page allows teachers to view, feedback, and grade multiple students' turned-in work, all in one place. With this feature, you’ll be able to:
Feedback and grade using all Kami tools.
Feedback and grade multiple students’ work simultaneously.
Sync your feedback or grading annotations in real-time.
See page numbers of an assignment as you scroll down.
See your students' names at the top of their work.
Who can use Grade by Page?
This feature is available to users with a Teacher, School, or District Plan. It's currently available with Kami's integration with Google Classroom, with more integrations added soon.
Want to try Grade by Page? Follow these five, easy steps.
1. Create a new Kami assignment
Teachers must create a new assignment through Kami. In the Kami dashboard, you can either:
Click the “Create Classroom Assignment” button, or
Click the Menu dropdown option “Create Assignment” for Google Classroom.
2. Instruct students to complete their work in Kami
Once assigned, your class can complete their assignment using the “Open with Kami” button in Google Classroom. Follow steps 2-3 of this guide.
3. Use the "Open Kami Grader" button
Once students have turned in their work, click the “Open Kami Grader” button to start grading in Kami.
A pop-up will appear asking you which document from the turned-in assignment you want to start grading. Make your selection, then hit "Open" to confirm.
If you click “Open Kami Grader” with zero assignments turned in, you will see a message in Kami saying the assignment is not ready for grading.
4. Feedback and grading with Kami tools
Each column (left to right) displays each student’s work, and each page of a student’s work is in rows (top to bottom). At the top of each column, you’ll see the student’s name.
You can feedback or annotate on any page from any student, using your favorite Kami tools. Here's an example of Grade by Page in action:
To speed up feedback and grading, use Annotation Bank to save frequently used annotations, and re-use them in a click. Access this feature through the Toggle Sidebar.
Page numbers in the bottom right will guide you on which page of a student’s work you’re currently viewing.
Remember, all your annotations are saved and synced in real-time, so students can also see your feedback if they choose to jump back on their turned-in work in Kami.
5. Returning assignments to students
After giving feedback, you can close your Kami window and go back to the Google Classroom assignment to submit a grade for each student.
