  2. Select the learner that you would like to mark.
  3. Complete the assessment record sheet as you normally would. Do not forget to add the date that the learner work is handed in and if the Lead IV authorises a resubmission opportunity or not. Do not click ‘Finish All’. Follow the assessment guidance below to write good feedback.
  4. Select the next learner that you would like to mark, and repeat! You will see that the first learner has a grade next to their name and their status has changed to show that you have marked them.

  6. When you have completed all learners click ‘Finish All’. You will be prompted to confirm the IV that is going to sample your marking. The results will not be added to the learner progress tracker until they have been confirmed.
  7. The IV will be notified by myBTEC
