New Assignment Evaluation Experience

The new evaluation experience for Assignments brings consistency to evaluating in Brightspace Learning Environment for all assessment tools. 

Getting Started

No changes have been made to page navigation.  The user context bar now includes a menu to choose a learner or to choose a submission.

Traditional navigation tabs visible as described in text.

Learner Submissions

The Learner Submission List is the list that an evaluator will see when entering the evaluation experience for an assignment. It lists the files that the learner has submitted to the assignment, along with the time, date, and any comments entered by the learner. On the user submission list, files are now grouped by submission without repeating comments to make it easier to distinguish between submissions.

Multiple submissions listed for assignment and cover page files. 1 is flagged. Rubric is available. Overall Grade and Overall Feedback fields are open.

File Conversion

Opening a submission will initiate a conversion of the file to the submission reader. A message appears to users when viewing a file that has been converted to .pdf from a different file type in Assignments. The message states "This file has been converted and may have inaccuracies. This will not apply to files that were already .pdf.

Label: This file has been converted and may have in accuracies

User Profile Card

Use your mouse to hover over a learner's profile in the new Assignment Evaluation Experience, the User Profile card now displays the value of the Org Defined Id field.

User Profile Card Expanded to reveal check boxes for profile items and user information.


The evaluation pane divider is now draggable to suit a user’s preferences and screen size. Rubrics are now located at the top of the page, and assignment details are in the ellipsis menu. The overall grade remains as an icon that indicates if that grade is tied to the gradebook. The divider is easily accessible via keyboard, meaning that evaluators using assistive technology or keyboard shortcuts will be able to adjust panel sizes without using a pointer.

Inline Rubric

Instead of always opening in another window or dialog, it now expands down the evaluation panel, allowing the evaluator to see both the rubric and the submission at the same time. Instructors with complex rubrics will be able to pop out the rubric into a larger view using the button in the top right of the component.

Rubric window expanded revealing sample criterion text and a large slider to change values.

New Mobile View

The new mobile evaluation experience is more than just responsive, it is fully adapted to smaller screen sizes. While using smaller screens, such as a phone or a smaller tablet in portrait mode, the entire panel from the right side of the screen tucks into a neat and tidy drawer so that you can see and annotate files you’re grading without trying to manage unwieldy horizontal scroll bars.
