If you need to grade an essay from last term so that your student can receive their certificate, this article will explain how to proceed.
Teachers must contact support for help: Submit a Support Ticket
The 2022-23 school term in Texas College Bridge has been closed as of Friday, July 28. Students can no longer access their work and teachers can no longer grade essays.
Grading of essays can only be done through EdReady support staff.
Any essay grades entered after the transition week (beginning Monday, August 7) will be credited to the student's 2023-24 term.
Refer to the essay grading rubric for 2022-23 for help with grading, but you MUST follow the steps below to enter the student's grade.
Here are the next steps, depending on the situation:
A. You have reviewed the student's passing essay offline or before the shutdown.
In this case, please contact support and let us know that you would like the student's essay to be graded with a "pass" and we can manually make the adjustment and issue the certificate.
B. The student submitted their essay in the EdReady platform and you need to review it to provide a grade.
Teachers can still access most student essays one of two ways:
- Standard pending notifications (see Viewing Submitted Essays)
- Alternate pathway (see Essay FAQ: How can I grade an essay if the notification is not showing up?)
However, you cannot GRADE the essay through the platform. You MUST contact us for assistance so we can add the student's passing grade on the backend and generate their certificate.
If you cannot locate your student's essay this way, contact support for help.
