If you've been assigned as an assessor, you'll have an Assess tab on your learner dashboard which is where you access assigned assessments.

Any training (topic or article) you've been enrolled in as an assessor will appear under the Assess tab on your learner dashboard.

NOTE: You must be enrolled as an Assessor to assess content in training and to see the Assess tab. If you believe you have been assigned as an assessor, but don't see an 'Assess' tab on your learner dashboard, please speak with your portal's administrator.

You can also assess training as a Creator. Creator enrolments appear on the Create tab on your dashboard, not the Assess tab.

How do I know I have items to assess?

For any training where you are enrolled as a Creator or Assessor, if there are pending items to assess, you will see a notification of the number of pending items on your dashboard, next to the Assess tab.

NOTE: 'Pending' items means there are submissions from activated learners that are now ready for your review. The 'Pending' amount does not include any pending items against completed enrolments.

NOTE: If Groups is activated in your portal, then the number of pending items will only be for submissions from learners in your groups.

How do I find pending items to assess?

You can follow a 'trail' of notifications to find your pending items in each topic or article!

Identify topics or articles with pending items on the Assess tab

Use the Assess tab on your dashboard to identify which topics or articles have pending items to assess. The 'X pending' notification will show you how many items you have to assess in that topic or article.

Click on a topic or article to access it

When you click on a topic or article on your Assess tab, the Overview will slide out. Click on the Assess button (as an Assessor) or the Edit button (as a Creator).

Click on the Assess menu in the topic or article

The Assess menu in a topic or article will repeat the number of pending items to assess in that topic or article. Assessors will automatically see this menu. Creators will need to click on the Assess menu.

Click on the relevant types of assessment which have pending items

There are four types of elements which can be assessed - Tasks, Uploads, Q&A and Events. Each element has a separate option in the Assess menu which will show the number of pending items of that type of element.

Select an element with pending items and then select the specific element

Once you click on a type of element, you will see a dropdown to allow you to select the specific element of that type in that topic or article. For example, there may be many Q&A elements requiring assessment in that one topic.

In the dropdown, any element which contains pending items will be listed in the Pending group. Simply select an element from that list to see all the items in that element. You can then select another element and so on until all have been reviewed.

Filter the list of pending items in each specific element

You can filter your pending assess items by the various filters highlighted below:

  • All Tasks/Events/Q&A/Uploads (title will depend on which element you are assessing) by default or:

    • Incomplete

    • Complete

  • All results by default or:

    • Verified results

    • Pending results

  • Explorers only by default or:

    • Creators and assessors

    • All user types

  • Incomplete enrolments by default or:

    • Complete enrolments

    • All enrolments

NOTE: By default, the filters are set to display the type of user as 'Explorer only' and 'Incomplete enrolments', allowing assessors to focus on incomplete enrolments. These filters can be changed as required.

What makes an item 'pending' for assessment?

The criteria for what makes an item notify as 'pending' for assessment differs slightly between each element as follows.

  • Uploads. An item will be pending when...

    • The Upload element requires the learner to submit a file, and

    • The explorer has actually submitted a file into the upload, and

    • The Upload element requires an assessor to grade the upload, and

    • The item has not been assessed as pass or fail already

  • Tasks. An item will be pending when...

    • The Task element requires the learner to confirm they have completed the task, and

    • The explorer has actually confirmed they have completed the task, and

    • The Task element requires an assessor to verify the task has been completed, and

    • The item has not be assessed as verified already

  • Q&A. An item will be pending when...

    • The Q&A element requires the learner to submit a response, and

    • The explorer has actually submitted a response, and

    • The Q&A element requires an assessor to grade the response, and

    • The item has not been assessed as pass or fail already

  • Event. An item will be pending when...

    • The explorer's attendance at the event has been recorded, and

    • The Event element requires an assessor to grade the attendance, and

    • The item has not been assessed as pass or fail already

NOTE: Task elements which do not require the learner to confirm they have completed the task will never be marked as pending, even if an assessor must (solely) grade the task. Since the learner does not have to confirm they have completed the task, we assume there is other business process to notify the assessor (instead of our pending item notifications).

NOTE: Events will not appear as pending until the learner attendance as been recorded.
