Often times, you may want to apply points for things that can't be graded by Mimir Classroom's autograders. More subjective or preferential coding practices like comments, naming conventions, and more can be measured using manual grading on the Mimir Classroom.
A manual grade works similarly to an additional test case - you set how much the grade is worth and the total score is updated accordingly.
In this example, we have an automated grade worth 5 points and a manual grade worth 20. The total grade for this assignment would be 25 points, and the student above would receive an 18 out of 25.
Late penalties apply to manual grades, so if you're student has a 20% late penalty, and you give them 5 points for their manual grade, their final grade will only be increased by 4 points.
In addition to a manual grade, you can add a "Score Modifier". This is a flat modifier to the students final score which is unaffected by late penalties. This can be useful for dealing with special circumstances.
If you enable manual grading, than submissions must be manually graded and the grades must be released in order for students to see their scores on the "My Grades" page.
