Using marking workflow
The Marking Workflow options
This guide will show you how to implement Marking Workflow within your Assignment Activity.
What to know:
The Marking Workflow within the Assignment activity affords the teachers to manage the marking process by switching the stages. By using the Workflow, students grade and feedback will be kept hidden until teachers release them. If you are not using Marking Workflow, students will be able to see the grade as soon as you update the grades online.

With the Marking Workflow opened, you can also manage your workflow as you want. Please refer to the following information about each state when you want to do so:
- In marking --- the marker has started but not yet finished. All the grades will be saved but hidden to students.
- Marking completed --- the marker has finished but might need to go back for checking/corrections.
- In review --- the marking is now with the teacher in charge for quality checking
- Ready for release --- the teacher in charge is satisfied with the marking but wait before giving students access to the marking
- Released --- the student can access the grades/feedback
