Using Quick Eval

Quick Eval is a tool to help instructors quickly access student products for assessment. Use this tool to find and prioritize learner submissions in one location.

Choose Submissions

The Submissions view will list all student submissions regardless of the topic. Conversely, Activities will list all assignments with student submissions. You may the Filter options to narrow the visible list.

Under submission tab Name and Activity are both highlighted. The Filter is expanded to reveal Activity, Course and Date are also highlighted.

The Activities view organizes learner submissions by topic. This view makes it easy to complete all assessments for one assignment, discussion, or quiz, before moving on to the next task. This feature helps evaluators who prefer to evaluate submissions in the context of an activity. Activities view displays indicators to show the progress on submissions, progress on evaluations, and progress on publishing feedback to learners. It also includes links to the evaluation page, submission page, and publish all action.

Dismiss Activities

Instructors may remove items from their Quick Eval. Originally, this could be set a specific date or forever. Dismissed items can be restored when there is a new submission. The removed activity appears on the Dismissed Activities list and can be restored at any time. Once a new submission arrives in the Quick Eval list, the previously dismissed activity reappears there. Choose the menu icon above the filter/search to choose Dismissed activities.
