New Features for Evaluators and Test-Takers

February 10, 2021

Education world has considerably moved towards the online paradigm in the recent past. To smoothen the transition both for the evaluators and the test takers, Mercer – Mettl has launched many exciting and easy-to-use features.

Features for Evaluators

1-Document Preview in Report 

Taking a step towards improving the grading experience of evaluators, Mercer Mettl’s test reports now have the provision to quickly view the  documents uploaded by test takers.

Instead of first downloading the documents and then viewing them, one may now them within Mettl reports, hence saving time and effort of evaluators.

2-New and Enhanced Evaluation log

Evaluation logs capture the detail of evaluation done by individual evaluators such as evaluator’s name, marks awarded, evaluation comments, etc. With our latest enhancements we have not only updated the view into a table format but have also added the flexibility for a user to accept  marks out of evaluations done by multiple evaluators. 

In case any test report is graded by multiple evaluators, the admin has the flexibility to accept final marks awarded by one of the evaluators and the same will be used in the total score calculation. Marks of different evaluators can be accepted for different questions.

3. Question Bookmark in Test Reports

Manually evaluating answer sheets of curriculum exams in universities can be cumbersome because of large volume of test reports. This may eventually lead to errors in the evaluation.

Mercer-Mettl has introduced a new section for “Questions Bookmarks” towards the left in the test reports to address such issues while doing online evaluation of test reports. It can help the evaluators easily evaluate test reports as follows:

  • Questions shown in the Bookmarks section are the ones needing manual evaluation. Hence the evaluator has an all time view of these questions.
  • By clicking on any of the question number in the Bookmarks section, the page will automatically scroll to the respective question. Hence helping the user to easily navigate among questions in a report.
  • The grading status and marks will be displayed as per the evaluations done by the user viewing the report. Consequently, keeping him/her aware of the overall marks awarded at all times.

4. Soft checks for evaluators

  1. Soft check has been introduced with the aim to help evaluators grade all manaully graded questions
  2. If the evaluator navigates away from the screen without grading all manually graded question the below popup is displayed

3. Soft makes sure no question goes ungraded

4. Evaluator can  choose to navigate away without grading all questions by clicking “OK” button on the popup
