Within one session*, Literably will try to grade the earliest "full-length" recording (which we define as a recording that is at least 55 seconds long) for which the student also completed all 5 multiple choice comprehension questions. If there are no full-length recordings, we then choose the longest recording. This way, if a student accidentally creates a short recording, or if she re-records in order to try to perfect her reading, those additional recording will be ignored, and only the first full-length one will be graded. This helps to ensure that the graded recording is a "cold read."
Note: typically any recording will need to be at least 30-40 seconds to be graded, however, there is not one specific cutoff for all recordings (the cutoff depends on the level of the text and how fast the student is reading that text).
If a student produces multiple recordings, the additional recordings will be listed in the "Non-Graded Recordings" section of a student's assessment history with the label "duplicate."
*A session refers to a period of time when a student is signed into Literably and records an assessment (which could include multiple recordings if the student has to re-record for some reason). In contrast, if a student logs in and out of Literably (or closes the Literably browser tab) two separate times in a given 24-hour period, that creates two sessions.
