Once due date of an objective is met, it automatically moves into 'ready for grading' status. In 'ready for grading', action 'Grade & Close' is available on the objective detail page.
Clicking on 'grade & close' will bring you on grading page where you can rate your efforts on the objective as well as all the associated KRs. In addition, you can add assessments surrounding what helped & what didn't, along the way.
This is how the 'grading' page will look like.
Then In key results section, grade all key results and write relevant comments in the given comment box. As soon as you start grading KRs, you will see average grades are displayed at the top. Once you are done with grading KRs, You can 'save for later' if you want to save your grading and remarks as a draft. Else you can click on 'grade and close' and the objective will be closed.
Grade & carry forward option will be available on this pop up only when you are grading Individual & team level objectives.
Once grading is done, grades & remarks of the objective will be shown now in a newly created tab called 'grade' under activity section. If needed one can also edit grading later, using edit option right there under Grades tab.
If you click on box that shows grades, it expands the box and shows grades in detailed view.
If the objective is already graded and closed by someone else, you can still add your grades. Open the relevant objective, on the objective details page >> activity section >> click on grade button. This takes you to the grading page where you can grade all KRs and get the final average grade of the objective.
These grades can be made visible on your OKR views if the grades column is added in the view.
