❓ What about + (Plus) Assessments? Why aren't they listed here? Plus assessments are never actually in draft form since they are added directly to the gradebook. Learn more here.


Shared With Me

The Shared With Me > All section of your Drafts Assessment Page is the home for:

  • Locked assessments that have been sent to you by an administrator.

  • Assessment folders that have been shared with you by an administrator.

💡 Tip from the Otus Team: Because all assessments in a shared assessment folder are locked, there is not an option to have a single unlocked assessment in a shared assessment folder.

➡️ Shared Assessment Folders

  • The shared assessment folders are listed in alpha-numeric order.

  • Administrators can share or Manage User Access for the shared assessment folders. For more information, please see this resource.

Individual Locked Assessments

  • Any locked assessment that has been sent to you is listed in chronological order based on when it was sent.

  • Each assessment has a paper airplane icon followed by a padlock icon. Hovering over the paper airplane icon will show you who sent the assessment. The padlock indicates that this is a locked assessment.

  • Select the ellipsis for an assessment to access the following options based on the type of assessment:

Each option is outlined below including the type(s) of assessment(s) to which they apply: Rubric (R), Advanced (A), and Simple (S). Related articles are linked to each assessment type.

  • Assign (All): Assign an assessment directly from the ellipsis rather than from within the assessment itself.

  • Preview (R, A, S): Preview an assessment as a student would see it.

  • Print (A, S): Print Advanced or Simple assessments from the ellipsis menu. Rubrics are printed from another location.

  • Print Answer Key (A, S): Print answer keys for Advanced and Simple assessments.

  • Delete (All): Delete your assessment. Please read the important details in this article before deleting a draft assessment.

❗ If you are in a shared assessment folder...

  • You will not see the Delete option because you cannot delete an assessment from a shared folder.

  • Do you see an option that says "Clone to My Folders"? That means the administrator that shared the folder has given permission to clone the assessment. If you clone the assessment, it will appear in your My Folders section.
