Teacher Grading Guide

The Grading feature is only available to schools or districts that purchased the interactive editions. At this time, we have limited products that include these interactive editions. Contact your sales representative to see if the product you want has these features.
Students must complete the exercises within the assigned lessons for the instructor to grade these lessons.  
Exercises that are multiple choice and drag and drop will be automatically graded after the student clicks the Submit button.
