There are several alternative approaches when implementing corrections in connection with National Tests. How you as a teacher go about correcting the NT depends mainly on how experienced you are at using Dugga when conducting tests and the associated correction. In the following, the manual approach to correcting NT is described. We recommend that you use this procedure if you have less than half a year's habit of using Dugga and performing correction with Dugga.

Correction for NT, Procedure 1 (first choice for less experienced users)

  1. Figure 1 PDF symbol, down arrow into a box.

  2. Figure 2 Create Zip File with all PDFs

  3. Figure 3 Lock results, choose Grade scale and Lock results

  4. Figure 4 Publishing of results

A) When correcting or assessing national tests, you start by clicking on "Grade Exams" that you find in the top menu in Dugga. Then click on the current tests. When you have got the test that you want to correct, look at the left of the screen.

B) There you will see a list of a number of "submissions" which are the tests/ essays that the students have written. Each submission has a unique ID number (32 972, 32 973 etc in the picture above) which you then use to identify which person it is who has written the current test/ thesis. To the right of the submission you will see a symbol for updating the PDF (the symbol with two arrows in a circle) that you click on. When you click the symbol, a PDF file is created in the background. It may take a while but usually takes a few seconds. Please refresh the page to see if the PDF file is ready (you can click on multiple submissions before reloading the page). If it’s finished when you update the page, a new symbol appears, it looks like an orange piece of paper. Click on the symbol to download the PDF to your computer. If you make any changes, you can press the button to update the PDF to create a new PDF.

C) Then you take and look at the student's test/ essay to determine which assessment matrix (in paper format) is relevant to use to assess the test Print/ copy as many assessment matrices as you have tests to assess. Write the submission ID number of the assessment matrix so that, when you have completed the entire correction work, you can identify (at the de-identification) which student is hiding behind the ID number.

D) Now begin the assessment yourself by looking at the paper printout of the student's test/ essay while making your notes on the assessment matrix in paper format that you printed/ copied.

E) When done, staple the assessment matrix together with the assessment/ essay.

F) As a final step to the assessment, you set points for the essay in Dugga. These points obviously depend on how many points you have chosen to put on the exam/ essay when you created the question in Dugga. For example, if the test/ essay is worth the grade "A", you give 10 points (if you set 10 points as the highest score when you created the exam and the question). If the exam is worth the grade "B" you give 8 points, for "C" you give 6 points and so on. For the grade "F" you set 1 point. The reason why you have to score is because it’s necessary to be able to complete the grading in Dugga and then turn on de-anonymization. Note that it isn’t really important which points you put in Dugga because the real assessment is the one that you have done on the assessment matrix in paper format that you have attached to the test/ essay. You can also use more or less than 10 points on your question for your national test if you so wish. Some schools and municipalities have a common policy for which points will be used in the implementation of digital tests in Dugga. If you want to do it really easily, you indicate that the test is worth only 1 point and then you put 1 point on all the tests/ essays when you set the score in Dugga. Again, the score that you put into Dugga is not the important thing, but it is the assessment that you made on the assessment matrix in paper format that you stapled together with the test.

G) When you have completed both the "paper assessment" and the score in Dugga for the first submission/ test/ essay, you repeat the same procedure for all submissions. When this is done you should have a pile of tests (papers) that have an assessment matrix in paper format adhered to the "first page" and at the top of the assessment matrix you have the ID number for each submission (the ID number is of course also included in the tests/ essays).

H) When the steps above are completed, click "1. Unlock results and de-anonymize". There you select a "result scale" that you think is appropriate. For example, you can choose the one that goes from A - F. When you have selected this scale, you then adjust the score intervals so that they correspond to the score you have chosen to use on the test/ essay so that 10 points give an A, 8 points a B etc.

I) Check "Lock results" and click on the "Save" button.

J) Then, click on "2. Publication of results" and then you can see the names of students who have done the exam/ essay and the submission ID number of the submissions. You look now at the list of name and ID number (submission number) and write the correct name on the assessment matrix that you attached to the samples/ essays previously. As a result, the anonymous tests have now been given a name for the student who wrote the test.

K) Once you have identified all names and associated ID numbers and written the correct name for the assessment matrix (in paper format) for each sample, you are completely done with your assessment of the NT.

Note that you should NOT publish the test. You should therefore not check the box for any hand-in and publish tests that are national examinations.

You are now done with your NT and can continue to work with other knowledge evaluations in Dugga.
