Using the D2L Connector with Remark Test Grading Cloud

Remark Test Grading Cloud can connect directly to your D2L (Desire to Learn) account so you can seamlessly send grades to D2L. Your Remark administrator must first set up a link to your D2Lserver. Then teachers can link classes and tests to D2L to send information between the two applications. This article covers teacher usage with the D2L Connector (once the connection has been set up).

Note: The D2L Connector can be purchased through our sales department.

Once you connect your Remark and D2L accounts, you will see Class Links and Test Links buttons throughout Remark Test Grading Cloud. You no longer need to import your students or export your grades. Please ensure you are familiar with the basics of using Remark Test Grading Cloud before trying to link information.

Linking a Class

  1. On the desired class card click the “New Class” button.
  2. Click “Import from D2L.”
  3. You will receive a notice in D2L that Remark is requesting access to your account. Click “Authorize.”
  4. Back in Remark, choose a D2L class from the drop down to link to your Remark class.
  5. Click “Link and Sync.”

You should now see any students in the D2L class in your linked Remark class as well. Once a class is linked to D2L, you cannot edit in Remark Test Grading Cloud. If you add or remove students in your class in D2L at a later point, simply click the “Class Links” button and choose “Sync with D2L” to refresh your class list by pulling down any new students. 

Linking a Test

You can link Remark tests to quizzes in D2L. If the test (quiz) is given on paper, you can use Remark to grade those tests and then pass the grades back to D2L. The quiz should be set up with a numeric Grade Item in D2L.

  1. Create a Quiz in D2L.
  2. In Remark, on the desired class card click the “New Test” button.
  3. Click “Import from D2L.”
  4. Choose a D2L quiz from the drop down to link to your Remark test.
  5. Click “Link and Sync.”
  6. At this point you can create a new test in Remark. Click the “Edit Test” button.
  7. Click the “Start Designing My Test” button.
  8. Once your test is designed and administered, you can grade the test by uploading your scanned test images. Use this part of the product as you normally would to grade your tests.
  9. After you have graded the tests and optionally reviewed the data, you can send the grades back to D2L by clicking the “Sync Grades” button in the purple Respondents bar.
  10. Click “Sync with D2L.” The grades are sent to D2L and placed into the linked quiz.

You should now see the grades in the D2L grades area for the quiz. If you grade additional tests at a later point, simply click the Sync Grades button again to send the grades to D2L.
