Grading written student responses in Imagine Reading

As students read passages in Imagine Reading, they complete in-text comprehension questions about the passage. Imagine Reading 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 Reading shows the number of ungraded written responses for each passage in the unit on the Teacher Dashboard.

 Note

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