Grading an AP World Language speaking activity

Use this page to grade an Advanced Placement World Language speaking assignment via the Dashboard. The AP Grading Guide is also a resource available to learn about the procedures for the Advanced Placement courses. 

Frequently Asked Questions
I got an alert to grade my student's work, but I don't see their work. Where is it?
The student did not submit their assignment before clicking Done so no content was saved. Have the student go back and complete the assignment, submit it, then click Done. See below for instructions on how students submit their AP World Language assignments.
Once a student submits the activity, can they change their answer?
No. Once the student submits the activity, no changes can be made. While a student can type additional work, nothing is saved after the Submit button is clicked. Educators can reset the activity from the Edgenuity gradebook or from the top left of the grading window to allow students another opportunity to respond. 
Do the teacher tools within the grading window work? This includes the reset button.
No. They do not. You will need to select the Reset Activity button on the top left of the screen to reset the activity. Note that you will no longer have access to the student's submitted work on this assignment once it is reset.
Is there a printable guide I can use to access these steps?
Yes, you can find that here.
