How do I assess students?


In order to assess students, you must first have set up the correct permissions in roles. Learn more about roles 

You must also have set up a report in assessment design. Learn more about designing assessments 

 

You can assess students from the Assess Students page located under Assessment in the sidebar. 

 

On this page, you will see a table of all your students, organised by report. Each entry shows how much of that student's report has been graded. Select one of the entries to begin assessment.

    

Inside will be a list of criteria. 

   

When you click on a criteria, it will expand to give you details on what and how to evaluate.

This should include evidence of learning which is represented by a tagged collection of student work. If no student work appears, check that the related activities have been tagged correctly. Learn more about outcome tags 

    

As you evaluate each criteria, the total score at the bottom of the page will be adjusted to reflect the changes.

Below the total score is a comment box where assessors can include qualitative feedback. 

    

Once an assessor has finished evaluating the desired student(s), they can release the results via the Release button on the students list.

Results can be released immediately or on a date in the future. There are also options for releasing each student report manually.

 

When you release a report, the report results become accessible to the student. The student will receive a notification that their results are available. They can then access their report results from the notification or their progress page.


Go to assessment > assess students and click on the Export button above "student reports"

 

 

Choose your export format. We recommend "csv." Click OK to export your results.

      Hi @adiirfan,  in order to see the assessment report. The student needs to press at their Progress Bar at the top of the page where it shows "You are AWESOME". It will show that the report is ready. Attached herewith screenshot for further reference. 

      Let me know if you have further question. :)

      Hi  adiirfan , you have to ask your student to click "Assess Me Now" button in order to access them. Once you have accessed them, the report will show as the attachment that I've sent above.

      Let me know if you have other queries. :)

  • HI the student section on the sidebar suddenly disappeared i cannot find it any longer. What happened?

     

    Usually, there is a student tab where you see lists of students and how much they paid and the questions they answers. I dont see it anymore. ?

      Hi there!  

      This is an issue appearing in several courses right now and our team will fix it as soon as possible! 

      For now, if you go to Course setup > Roles, and remove the tick under "Facilitates" your Administer student tab should show up again. 

      Please note that this is not how it should be, you should be able to see the tab even if you are a facilitator (or not), this is just a temporary workaround until our team fixes this bug.

  • Hi....for the group work, how do we assess the group work by assessing ONLY ONCE? and the marks are all goes the same to the other group member? Perhaps just give marks to the admin of the group only and the same marks will appear to all its respective members.

    If not, I have to do marking for every individual student (like doing the marking for the individual task) and its really kill my time to do the assessment. Thank you.

    • adiirfan Hi there! Any group assignment submitted by one member of the group counts towards all the other members of that group. So you only have to grade the one assignment.

      Omnaya Omar Many thanks for the reply. I have set the task as group task. But when come to assessment, I have to do it for individual student. "Any group assignment submitted by one member of the group counts towards all the other members of that group" - it works for some group, and some group not works; I have no idea why this is occurred, since the student give this feedback to me.

      When I give marks to the group task in one particular student, the marks given doesn't reflect to the other group member screen. 

      In doing marking, I click menu like this flow i.e. Assessment-Asess Students-Student name. When I mark the group task, it only reflect for that particular student, not the whole group member. I have set for all students "Assess Me" button. 

      Kindly advise the specific steps to do this.

      Alenka Prezelj Many thanks, Indeed I have set up the task correctly since the very beginning, as per the image below.

      Link to the page: https://www.openlearning.com/courses/motorcycle-convoy/tips_from_others/

      But the marking still goes to the individual students.

      In the screen "Assess Students", I have marks 1 student named Muhammad Shafeeq (1/8 criteria graded; this is group task), but you can see the other member still 0/8 criteria graded. 

      Kindly advise.

    • adiirfan  Hi there! After much discussion and investigation, I'm afraid I have to report that we don't have the functionality to assess as a group. The (manual) workaround is if the assessor has a list of groups and members, takes down a note of the group mark and searches for the other team members to allocate the same mark. We apologise for the inconvenience!
      Would you mind posting about this feature on our Suggest a feature page? We really appreciate it!
