Move "Points" Box in Speed Grader to the bottom of the question.


When grading in Speed Grader, the “points” box in the upper right hand corner of the question needs to be moved to the bottom right hand corner or have it in both places. Currently, it is only in the top right corner and for those of us who are grading essay type answers, it is a constant struggle with the mouse to scroll down through the essay answer, scroll back up to the top to put in the points, only to scroll back down again, through the essay and the answer to get to the next essay to do the same thing. If I’m scrolling down anyhow to grade another question or essay, it’s silly to have the “points” box at the top of the questions.

I concur with Bonnie, but I'd go a bit further... I'd say that the score box location is a result of poor design, not silly.

I agree that it should be in both places.
