Inline Grading

When to Use?

How do I use the assignment inline grading tool in the Ultra course view?


  1. On the Grade Assignment page you can view and annotate Word, PowerPoint, and PDF file types in the browser.
  2. Select Preview File in the file's menu.
  3. At the top of the panel, select the Drawing annotation mode icon to draw on the document.
  4. Select the point annotation mode icon to type comments in any place on the document.
  5. To highlight text, point and drag your cursor and then select highlight text.
  6. To add a comment to the highlighted text, select add comment.
  7. When you are finished, assign a grade and provide feedback at the top of the panel.
  8. Select the more options icon to post the grade. Students will not see any annotations until you post the grade.
