Grading written student responses in Imagine Lectura

As students read passages in Imagine Lectura, they complete in-text comprehension questions about the passage. Imagine Lectura automatically grades responses to question types such as true/false, multi-select, short answer, matching, ordering, multiple-choice, and others. Teachers review and grade any open-ended, written responses. Imagine Lectura shows the number of ungraded written responses for each passage in the unit on the Teacher Dashboard.


Student scores include both graded and ungraded responses. Ungraded responses are considered a "0" until they are graded.
