Manual assessments are used any time a learner's response needs to be manually assessed by someone. The learner will answer the questions given, and the assessor will grade them either satisfactory or not satisfactory, with the ability to add commentary.

To create a manual assessment: 

  1. Under the module you would like to add the observation to, click the plus + button
  2. Click Assessment
  3. Enter the title of your manual assessment
  4. Add any instructions for the learner (eg assessment criteria or expectations)
  5. Change the "Type" drop-down from Quiz to Manual Assessment
  6. Add any instructions for the Assessor (the person who will be reviewing the learner's answers)
  7. Add additional resources if desired (eg videos or documents)
  8. Click Questionnaire on the left side tab navigation
  9. Add all the questions for the learner to answer using the Create Question button
  10. Once complete, click the Assessor tab
    Important: Ensure you have added all questions first, as you cannot add or remove questions later from this assessment. 
  11. Click Add New and specify who can do the assessments, and whether they can do them for everyone or only for certain locations
  12. Check the box if that person/role is REQUIRED to do the assessments (ie it's not optional. You may have an optional person as a backup in case the required person isn't available) 
  13. Click Preview and ensure it looks the way you'd like. Make any amendments if required
  14. Click Publish when complete
