Using the Emacs Plugin¶
After installation, the CodeGrade Emacs plugin can be used. The plugin offers two main functions: editing rubrics and giving line feedback.
It is important to note that this package does not yet check if the
file-system if mounted in
--fixed mode, please make sure it is when
giving line feedback.
To edit a rubric you call the
codegrade-open-rubric function. This opens a
rubric in a new buffer with the major mode
codegrade-rubric-mode that you
can edit. To toggle a rubric item you can call
which is bound to c and , by default in the
codegrade-rubric-mode. You can goto the next item with
codegrade-goto-next-item (bound to n) and to the previous item with
codegrade-goto-previous-item (bound to p). To goto next or previous
headers use the
codegrade-goto-*-header functions (bound to N and
P by default).
To quit this rubric you should use the
bound to q.
The opened buffer follows you around. So if you open another submission by another user the rubric buffer automatically updates. See the first line of this buffer to see which person you are grading.
To edit line feedback you can call the
codegrade-add-feedback function on a
line. This opens a new buffer in the
codegrade-feedback-mode mode. You can
save the contents in this buffer and quit by calling
codegrade-feedback-close (bound to C-c C-c by default). To quit
without saving you can call
codegrade-feedback-quit, bound to C-c C-k
You can also delete a line of feedback by calling

You can also give a grade using this plugin. Simply call
