Assessment List

➡️ Navigation and Sorting

  1. Click on the Classes field for a drop-down menu of classes, or type a class name into the field.

  2. To find specific assessments within a class, use Search.

  3. The default sort is reverse chronological by assignment date. Sort the list alphabetically by clicking the Assessment Name column heading, or chronologically by due date by clicking the Due Date column heading.

Individual Assessments

There are four primary elements to any assessment in the list:

  • Assessment Name: This is set when the assessment draft is created.

  • Due Date (if added): Establishes when the assessment is due. Click here for more information.

  • Status bar: Displays total class progress. The screenshot below explains color coding.

  • Ellipsis: See More Options section below for details.

❗ Note: Clicking anywhere on the assessment row (other than the Ellipsis) will open the list of students to whom this assessment was assigned. From that page, you can view their results, and grade the assessment. Click any of the following links for the corresponding article about grading these assessment types: Simple, Advanced, Points-based Rubric, Standards-based Rubric.

More Options (Ellipsis button)

There are five options in this menu:

  • Edit: Opens Assign Assessment page (click here for more information). From here, adjust Due Date, Availability, Instructions, and other assignment settings.

  • View Details: Opens popup window displaying assessment details: Name, Type (quiz, test, project, etc.), the Assessment field (Simple, Advanced, Rubric), Grading Scale (Points, Standards-based), and Due Date.

❗ View Details content is not editable here. To change Name or Type, make those edits to the assessment Draft (if editing an Advanced Assessment, it will need to be reassigned). The Assessment field cannot be changed, a new assessment draft would need to be built in the desired assessment type. Grading Scale can be changed by cloning the draft and reassigning. Due Date can be adjusted by selecting Edit (see above).

  • Analytics: Opens Assessment Analytics 1.0 page (click here for more information). From here, analyze assessment results in a variety of different ways.

  • Unassign: Unassigns this assessment from all students and deletes all student work, which cannot be restored. For more information, see this article.

  • Manage Assignees: Opens the Manage Assignees page for all assessments assigned to this class. From here, individual students' assessments can be unassigned. See this article for more information.

Plus Assessments

Plus Assessments do not appear in the Drafts Assessments page because they are created directly in the Gradebook. As a result, some features of Plus Assessments are handled differently than other assessment types listed in Assigned Assessments. Here are a few important details:

  • Point-Based Plus Assessments: Click the assessment row to open the Gradebook.

  • Standards-based Plus Assessments: Click the assessment row to open the Grading page for standards-based Plus Assessments:

  • More options (ellipsis button): Select Edit to change the Assessment Title, Type (quiz, test, project, etc.), Linked Standards, or Submission Date (the default is date created). Note: Grading Scale cannot be edited, a new Plus Assessment must be created in a new scale.
