The image on the right shows the teacher comment bank as it appears in the eMarking Assistant toolbar. The comments can be exported and imported from a Word document so they can be easily distributed to other teachers.
The following image shows the teacher comment bank as it appears in this exported Word file. You can download this blank teacher comment bank (contains only three comments) and use it to start your own bank of grading comments for use with eMarking Assistant. The second comment contains a speaker icon showning that it contains a voice comment. There is one row for each comment and:
- the first column contains the comment name which should be less than 31 characters, start with a “.” , then has a category, then a “-“, and then a name e.g. “.APA-ref double space” would be a good name for a comment related to APA and reference list being double spaced
- the second column can contain what ever you can include in a word document e.g. formatted text, links, lists of points, images, tables, sounds etc.
You can delete these comments and add your own to create your own bank of grading comments.
When loaded into eMarking Assistant this teacher comment bank will appear in the floating toolbar and can be easily and quickly inserted when grading papers and marking assignments.
