Faster, easier controlled assessments

We have added some more tools to make controlled assessments easier to manage. In your Assignments List, you can now hide an assignment from students, or reveal it again, with a single action.

In the annotated screen shot above

1. The hide/show icons show you clearly what is visible to students, and what not.

2. From the Actions dropdown, choose “Hide” or “Show” to change the visibility of the assignment.

A hidden item simply disappears from the student’s To-Do list. It won’t disappear if they actually have it open and are working on it, so accidentally hiding will not cause mid-lesson consternation.

It is now the work of seconds to unlock an assignment (an ePortfolio, for example) at the beginning of a lesson, and lock it again at the end. This fulfils the controlled assessment criteria of all the exam boards.
