If an assignment includes moderated or anonymous grading, you may be able to view an audit log in SpeedGrader. The audit log displays all changes that affect an assignment submission.

The audit log only displays once the assignment has been unmuted and may be used to verify any grading related actions. The audit log also includes information about Submission comment events, DocViewer comment events, and edits made to the assignment's settings.

Notes:

  • Auditing an assessment is an account permission. If you do not have permission to view the Assessment Audit link, your institution has not allowed you to view this feature.
  • Assessment auditing requires an assignment to include moderated grading or anonymous grading, which are course opt-in features, and may not apply to every assignment.

Open SpeedGrader

Open SpeedGrader

Open Speedgrader from the assignment or from the Gradebook.

Open Student Submission

Open Student Submission

Use the student list to locate a student submission.

Note: If the assignment was set to hide student names, or student names were hidden in SpeedGrader settings, the student list displays all student names as anonymous. In anonymous grading, the student list order does not match the order in the Gradebook and is randomized for each assignment.

View Assessment Audit

  View Assessment Audit

Confirm the assignment is unmuted [1] and then click the Assessment audit link [2].

Notes:

  • The Assessment Audit link only displays once the assignment has been unmuted.
  • Moderated assignments cannot be unmuted until final grades have been posted.

View Submission Details

View Submission Details

The Assessment Audit tray displays details about the submission, including the final grade [1] and a timestamp of when the submission was graded [2].

The tray displays a timestamp showing when grades for a non-moderated assignment were unmuted and posted to the Gradebook [3]. If an assignment is moderated, the tray displays the time the grade was posted to the student [4].

View Anonymity Status

View Anonymity Status

The sidebar also displays the anonymity status of the assignment.

If the entire assignment was graded anonymously, the sidebar displays the Anonymous On status [1].

If the assignment was only moderated and was not graded anonymously, the sidebar displays the Anonymous Off status [2].

View Partially Anonymous Assignment

View Partially Anonymous Assignment

If anonymity was turned off during the grading process, the anonymity status displays as Partially Anonymous [1]. Partially anonymous means that anonymity was turned off and back on for any of the three levels of anonymity during the grading process—student anonymity, grader-to-grader anonymity, or grader-to-final grader anonymity.

Additionally, if a grader updated the assignment at any time, the name of the grader displays an alert icon [2], and the audit trail displays the modified actions [3].

If there is more than one grader for the assignment, each grader will display in the sidebar.
