Deploying general assessments

Updated by Helpdesk Coordinator -

A general assessment has the following workflow:


There are various options that can be selected:


General assessment:

User accepts agreement: Sometimes you may require students to agree to something before they complete an assessment. This setting allows you to present some text at the start of the assessment process that must be agreed to before continuing. A typical example in healthcare education could be “students agree to remove all sensitive data regarding patients before submitting their assessment”. 

User selects placement: Placement & Timesheets functionality must be enabled. Users can then select a placement to link the response to.

User must answer all questions: By default, assessments can be submitted without students needing to answer all of their questions. If you tick this setting then all questions become mandatory before an assessment can be completed.

User can respond multiple times: If this is unticked then students will only be able to create a single response to this assessment. Left ticked, students will be able to respond multiple times to the same assessment.

User can edit responses online: When ticked, assessment responses can be saved as draft so that students can refine their responses online before submitting them for review by tutors. If this setting is un-ticked then responses are sent directly for tutor review.

User selects tutors to share with: When unticked, responses to this assessment will be made visible to all available tutors. If ticked, students will be presented with a list of available tutors, and they will be able to select which tutors to share their responses with.

Response is graded: In many situations, the ability to categorise assessments against a scheme is more appropriate than the percentage scoring that is the default approach in the product (which allows assessment authors to allocate points to questions which are converted into an overall percentage score when marked). 

Examples of grading schemes might include:

  • Pass / Fail
  • A / B / C / D / E / F
  • Meets the required standard / Borderline / Does not meet the required standard
  • Excellent / Competent / Not competent

But the possibilities are infinite, and the only way to meet all possible requirements is to allow the specification of custom grading schemes whenever they are required. 

Select the grading scheme you want to apply. The System Admin must already have set up the grading scheme.
