Course Element: Assessment

The course element "Assessment" is suitable to assess achievements not handed in electronically. You can evaluate manually e.g. presentations by course participants with passed or failed, with a score or with an individual comment. The course element "Assessment" serves to preconfigure the assessment of such achievements. Individual assessments can be inserted by using the assessment tool of your course.

According to your assessment you can preconfigure the display of a score, of a status or a comment in the tab "Assessment." In the field "Information for all users" and "Information for tutors" you provide general information on how to assess achievements.

In order to assess a course participant personally that participant has to be member of at least one group of your course.

 

Course Elements: Task & Group Task

By means of the course elements „Task" and „Group Task“ you can provide exercises for individual participants and groups to be handed in electronically before being assessed by a tutor.

In the tab "Workflow" you determine which of the following six elements you want to utilize:

  • Task Assignment: assign tasks to course participants.

  • Submission: this is where course participants create their solutions or upload them in a PDF file format.

  • Review and Correction: this is where course participants will find their tasks corrected as well as requests for revisions.

  • Revision Period: course participants upload their revised documents in this element. You as a coach can place multiple revision requests until the task is considered completed and the revision process closed.

  • Sample solution: provide course participants with sample solutions of their tasks. You can either create them directly in OpenOlat or upload files.

  • Assessment: create individual assessments for each course participant.

How to create tasks step by step and further information on other configuration possibilities can be found in the chapter "Creating Tasks".

How course participants will see the course element "Task" will be explained in the chapter "Learning Activities in Courses," section "Task and Group Task".

Course Element: Portfolio Task

By means of the course element "Portfolio task" you can provide predefined portfolio templates to be filled by your course participants. Their tasks can then be submitted electronically and assessed by a tutor.

In order to assess course participants with the assessment tool, they have to be registered in a group first. Otherwise you will not be able to find that participant within your assessment tool.

By means of the tab "Learning content" you can create new portfolio templates or select a predefined one. How to create a portfolio task as course author will be explained in the chapter "Creating Portfolio Tasks".

Additionally you can determine a deadline for your portfolio task in the tab "Learning content." You can define a specific date or set a deadline in relation to that task's collection date. If the deadline is over your task will be retracted automatically; it will no longer be possible to perform that task.

By means of the assessment tool you will have the opportunity to change a deadline for a single user.

Optionally you can create a message to be displayed when clicking on the course element "Portfolio task" within your course.

In the tab "Assessment" you can preconfigure the display of scores, status, as well as individual comments. Within the fields "Hint for all users" and "Hint for tutors" you can provide course participants and tutors with general information on how to make assessments.

Information on how a portfolio element is seen and dealt with by course participants can be found in the chapter "Learning Activities in Courses," section "Portfolio task".

Course Element: Test

The course element "Test" is used to control achievements within a course. Course results will be archived in a personalized way. A test has to be imported or created first in the so-called IMS QTI format (version 1.2). If you have not generated a test before please follow the instructions in the chapter "Creating Tests and Questionnaires".

By means of the course element "Test" you include that test in your course. In this course element, data regarding course participants will be stored (number of attempts, scores, detailed assessments). Click on "Select, create or import file" in the tab "Test configuration" to assign this course element to a test or create a new one.

If you want to replace a test already embedded just click on "Replace file" in the tab "Test configuration" and select a new test. In case there are already test results of course participants you can download them next.
Attention: In case participants are taking a test at that moment all their results will be lost since that test is not complete. All results achieved between replacing and publishing a test will be lost as well.

A test will always be started along with a homepage in your course. You can edit the content of this page in the section "Information (HTML page)".

The presentation of results, etc. can be configured in the tab "Test configuration" as well. For more information please go to "Display Options and Configuration", section "On the course level."

Information on how to see test results can be found in "Archiving Results of Tests and Questionnaires".

Course Element: Self-test

The course element "Self-test" is also used to control achievements in a course. In contrast to the course element "Test" self-tests are suitable to get practice; results of self-tests will be saved anonymously. Self-tests can be taken as often as needed. The course element "Self-test" contains learning resources of the type "Test." Therefore it is up to you if you want to offer a test or a self-test. Your test has to be imported or created first in the so-called IMS QTI format (version 1.2). If you have not generated a test before please follow the instructions in the chapter "Creating Tests and Questionnaires".

In this element data regarding course participants are stored anonymized (number of taken tests, scores, detailed assessments). Just click on "Select, create or import file" in the tab "Configuration self-test" to assign your course element to a test or create a new one.

If you want to replace a test already embedded just click on "Replace file" in the tab "Configuration self-test" and select a new one. In case there are already test results of course participants you can download them next.
Attention: In case participants are taking a self-test at that moment all their results will be lost since that test is not complete. All results achieved between replacing and publishing a test will be lost as well.

A self-test is always started along with a homepage in your course. You can design its content individually in the section "Information (HTML page)".

The presentation of results, etc. can be configured in the tab "Self-test configuration" as well. For more information please go to "Display Options and Configuration", section "On the course level."

Information on how to see test results can be found in "Archiving Results of Tests and Questionnaires".

Course Element: Questionnaire

By means of a questionnaire you can carry out online evaluations in your course, e.g. at the beginning to find out what your course participants expect. You can also process the results gained with statistic methods or evaluate your course at the end. Results will be stored anonymously. A questionnaire has to be imported or created first in IMS QTI format (version 1.2). If you have never generated a questionnaire before please follow the instructions in the chapter "Creating Tests and Questionnaires.

By means of the course element "Questionnaire" you embed a questionnaire in your course. Click on "Select, create or import questionnaire" in the tab "Questionnaire configuration" to assign that course element to a questionnaire.

If you want to replace a questionnaire already embedded just click on "Replace file" in the tab "Questionnaire configuration" and select a new one. In case there are already questionnaire results of course participants you can download them next.
Attention: In case participants are taking a questionnaire at that moment all their results will be lost since that questionnaire is not complete. All results achieved between replacing and publishing a questionnaire will be lost as well.

Course Element: Checklist

The course element „Checklist“ offers you the opportunity to assess and embed e.g. todo, attendance lists or regular checklists into your course structure.

Using the checklist, coaches are able to document a given task list or attendance requirements, or support procedures. A checklist contains items with completed and uncompleted tasks or checks.

By means of the course element "Checklist" you can add different kinds of checklists to your course. Create individual check boxes in the tab "Check boxes" via the button "Add checkbox". You can add files for download to a checkbox. Detailed information on creating and configuring check boxes and the checklist can be found in the respective context-sensitive help.

You can set a due date after which the checklist will be locked for student editing in the "Configuration" tab. As an assessable course element you can specify here whether the participants get points for filling out the checklist, and what should be included in the results display.

After you have created the checklist, you will see the two tabs "My Checklist" and "Manage checklists" on the element page. Course participants without coach rights can not see the administration tab.

The checklist management offers an overview of all checkboxes of participants coached by you. Filter the table by group if you are coaching multiple groups. Edit the checkboxes and assess your participants directly, without leaving the course. For access to the assessment tool, click on the "Edit" link in the table, to the right of the respective users' name.

Checkboxes should not be modified in any way before the due date.

Altogether there are four options to edit user checklists and process their assessment at your disposal. For one, use the "Edit" link in the table, from where you have direct access to the assessment tool. By clicking the "Edit per checkbox" button, a new table with one specific checkbox for all users open. Select the appropriate checkbox by using the checkbox filter dropdown list. The "Edit" button opens the table overview in edit mode, which allows you to edit all checkboxes of all participants. And finally, checkboxes of participants can also be edited in the assessment tool.

Multiple checklists

Clicking "Multiple checklists" opens the checklist wizard, which enables you to create multiple similar checklists simultaneously. They will be added as child nodes to a structure course element.

Create a template for the new checklists in the first, and configure them in the second step. Specify the title and release dates of the individual checklists in the next step. The parent structure element will be configured in the last step. The checklist group is inserted at the end of the course. You can arrange the group or individual checklists afterwards into their correct order. Further information can be found in the respective context-sensitive help.
