When you arrive at your Revision Interface, you will see a list of the corrections you need to work on. All you need to do is click on “Commencer” or “Résumé” depending on how far along you are.
Note: if you have been added to the test as a “supervisor”, you can access the correction interface from the Question Management Interface (QMI) via the “Essay” tab and then “Correction Entry”.

2. Introducing the Correction Interface

You are now on the exam correction interface. You can choose between 2 correction modes:

  • 1: Question by question: this allows you to correct all the learners’ answers to the same question.
  • 2: Copy by copy: this displays the learner’s complete copy with their answers to the other questions in the test.
