How Does Grading Work on Packback Deep Dives?
Grading on Packback Deep Dives is “AI-assisted”, but not fully AI-graded. The Deep Dives Grading Assistant uses AI to suggest scores for each of the grading criteria you’ve selected to be included in your rubric. However, you have the final say in your students’ Deep Dives score for each category and can choose to override any score as you see fit.

How to grade a Deep Dives Submission
While you can view the submission and Grading Assistant at any time, you can only actually submit assessments after the deadline passes. When you’re ready to grade a Deep Dive submission, here’s how!
- Once you’re viewing an individual student’s submission, you’ll see the submission on the left side of the screen, and the Grading Assistant panel on the right side of the screen.
- For each of the AI-assisted requirement components of your rubric, the system will pre-populate the score field with a recommended score from the AI Grading Assistant. You can click See Why next to each Packback Suggestion to read a breakdown.
- Review the AI suggestions and make edits to any category scores as you see fit. You are in control of the final grade each student receives!
- For the “Content & Ideas” category, be sure to both select the student’s performance level (1-4) and add a score.
- Provide praise or constructive feedback on this student’s Deep Dives assignment in the Instructor Feedback field!
- Once you’ve completed grading, click Submit Assignment. Your student will receive a notification that their Deep Dives submission has been graded and given feedback by email and within the Packback application.
