The Manage Assignees menu allows you to assign and unassign assessments for individual students after an assessment has been assigned to a class. Below are some examples for how it can be used:

  • Unassign assessments from individual students. This is another way to exempt a student from an assessment if needed.

  • Unassign and re-assign assessments to individual students in order to give them a fresh start.

  • Assign assessments to individual students who joined the class after the assessments were assigned.

Locate the Manage Assignees Menu

  • Step 1: Navigate to your Assessments Module.

  • Step 2: Select Assigned.

  • Step 3: Choose the correct class.

  • Step 4: Click on the ellipses to the right of the desired assessment.

  • Step 5: Select Manage Assignees.

How Manage Assignees Works

Student names are listed down the left side, and each assigned assessment title is listed across the top. After locating the correct assessment column, use the checkboxes to assign and unassign that assessment to individual students.

Note that the top row provides an option to Select/Deselect All. Please use this option with caution. Deselect All will permanently unassign the assessment from the class and remove the assessment column from the menu.

Unchecking a box will: 

  • unassign the assessment from that student

  • permanently erase the assessment data for that student

  • permanently remove the grade from the gradebook for that student

❗ After unchecking a box, you will receive the following confirmation message. Before selecting Yes, ensure that both the assessment title and student name are correct in order to avoid unassigning the wrong assessment by mistake.

Checking an empty box will:

  • assign the assessment to that student

  • allow you to add an assessment grade for that student
