Creating and editing an assessment task

If the Assessment data is prepared in advance, you can create tasks for it without using an Assessment wizard.

Creating an assessment task

To add a task with the type of task Assessment, you need to go to the menu Leraning - Learning management - Tasks and click the Create button.

Next, the Add task page will open, where you must first select the Type - Assessment (1). Next, select the previously created Assessment (2) from the list, specify the Task title (3), if desired, add a Description (4).

The Add task page with the type - Assessment also has various individual settings.

(5) - Enable feedback mode - this function is used when it is necessary to conduct an assessment in the format of collecting feedback. More details about this function in the next section of this article.
(6) - Assigning mode - the way in which questionnaires will be assigned to tasks.
Available options:

  • manually - specifying the users to be evaluated and the users who will evaluate the manual process. The task author identifies all necessary users, creates questionnaires and defines roles.
  • assessment by functional managers
  • assessment by organizational structure- assigning users in automatic mode. The administrator should assign users for evaluation. The users to be evaluated are determined automatically by the links in the Organizational structure.

While choosing the Mode of assignment of questionnaires by Organizational structure or functional managers it is also necessary to specify Assessment collection method (7):

  • self-esteem
  • assessment is given by manager
  • assessment is given by colleagues (it is necessary specify the Number of users selected for the survey)
  • assessment is given by subordinates. (it is necessary to specify the Number of users selected for the survey)
  • assessment is given by randomly selected users. (it is necessary specify the Number of users selected for the survey).
    For the mode of assessment by functional creators, only self-esteem and manager assessment are available.

The choice of Assigning mode determines the method of user assignment to the assessment task.

But using this feature, you can customize the order of filling out the questionnaires by role.

(9) - View results - an additional setting that allows:

  • the manager to view the results of the assessment of subordinates (if he/she participates in the assessment as a manager)

    Access to the report for both the manager and the participant is provided without specifying the names of respondents.

(10) - Allow commenting - option enables the ability to comment on tasks.
