Assessments Widget

Assessments Widget

The Assessments Widget was created to compile the key assessment types into one place that can easily be displayed and connect with the corresponding sections. The widget provides an at-a-glance view of Assignments, Quizzes and Grades. Students can quickly view and access this content by clicking on each tab. Like the Communications Widget, the Assessments Widget remembers the tab you visited last.

Assignments Tab

The Assignments tab will showcase the latest three assignments and provide a quick connection to access the full content. If there are more than three than it will will display the total number of assignments. The order in which Assignments are displayed in the tab is dependant on a due date (we recommend this as a best practice). If a due date does not exist, it will display based on available until date. If these dates are not entered, the widget will display based on the latest three entries. If there are more than three entries the widget will display the additional number of Assignments. If an Assignment is past the due date students will see an indication that it is overdue. If Assignments do not exist than instructors will see a prompt to create a new assignment. If Assignments do not exist than students will not see the Quizzes tab. You can click to be taken directly to the desired Assignment.

The Assignments tab displays differently for instructors and students.
