Use Shared marks to allow graders to build a single total mark pr candidate, as opposed to Individual marks


Use Shared marks when graders want to collaborate on building a single total mark pr candidateUse this option to allow the graders to split the marking of submissions on questions level. Graders jump directly to final grading and share marks and grades. This mode is very useful if graders wants to split marking of questions, e.g. one grader marks question 1 and 2 and another grader marks question 3 and 4. The total marks is then the sum of the two graders marks.
