Each activity type has its own editor. Although many of the settings between types are similar, there are some notable differences. Each activity editor is described below.

Create assessments

The Assessment Editor is made up of eight tabs:

  • The Activity tab.
  • The Questions tab.
  • The Data tab.
  • The Objectives tab.
  • The Gradebook tab.
  • The Navigation tab.
  • The Assessment Settings tab.
  • The History tab.

The Groups dropdown at the bottom of the editor remains onscreen for all tabs. Use it when you want to make edits to an assessment for only specific groups.

Assessment Activity tab

Use the Activity tab to:

  • Provide the assessment Title.
  • Create descriptive Content using the rich text editor. This content always appears at the top of the assessment.
  • Click Add attachment to provide files for students to review before starting the assessment.
  • Make a Basic, Standard, and/or Scientific calculator available to students while they complete the assessment.
  • Click Add under Companion Material to add resources that students can reference while they're taking the assessment. You can only use PDF files here, but no worries: you can easily convert documents and images to pdfs using both PCs and Macs (this is called "printing to pdf").
  • Create Instructor Notes to Student using the rich text editor. Students can access this content by clicking a pencil icon at the top of the assessment.
Assessment Activity tab

Assessment Questions tab

Assessment Data tab

Use the Data tab to:

  • Provide a Thumbnail image to represent the activity.
    • Recommended file type: PNG or JPG (Buzz converts all files into PNGs)
    • Ideal size: 400px x 400px (Buzz automatically resizes images, so uploading images smaller than 400px x 400px may reduce quality)
  • Define Metadata, like:
    • An assessment Description for course authors.
    • An idea of how this activity fits into the goal of the course or the Big Picture.
    • Essential Questions that should be answered by the activity or that students should keep in mind as they complete it.
    • Any associated Vocabulary.
    • Associated Resources.

Some of the fields under Metadata ask for content that, if set up by your system admin, can be used to make the activity searchable in the Digital Library. Contact your system admin to find out if there are fields in your domain that can be used this way.

Assessment Objectives tab

Use the Objectives tab to review and align objectives with the activity:

  • Check the boxes next to objectives to align them with the activity.
  • Use the dropdown to limit the displayed objectives to those that are created in the Course, to those inherited from the activity's Parent folder, or to only the Selected objectives. Any selected objective remains in the list for all three settings.
  • Use the Filter field to search objectives for words and phrases.
  • Edit objectives created in the course by clicking the pencil (edit) icon, and remove them by clicking the garbage can (delete) icon.

Assessment Gradebook tab

Check the boxes to choose to make the activity Gradable and to set a Due date.

If you choose to make it Gradable, you are able to specify:

  • The Category you want the assessment to be a part of.
  • The assessment's numeric Weight in category; this number defines how much impact this assessment's grade has on the final grade, relative to the other gradable activities in the same category. (Weight in category is not available in courses using Multi-Outcome Scoring.)
  • Whether you want the assessment to be considered Extra credit.
  • The desired Score type (Points, Rubric, Percent (%), or Letter grade); if you choose Rubric, click Add rubric to define it.
  • The minimum Passing score (%).
  • The Minimum points possible.
  • Whether you want to Restrict score visibility by date, and, if so, the date and time the score becomes visible.
  • Whether the assessment's Score can be dropped.
  • Whether to Include in final grade.
  • Whether to make a Passing score required for course credit.
  • Whether to Treat unscored as zero.

If you choose to set a Due date (not available for continuous courses), you can specify:

  • The Due date and time.
  • Whether you want to Allow late submissions, and, if so, what the Late rule and Grace period rules are.
Assessment Gradebook tab

Assessment Navigation tab

Use the Navigation tab to manage:

  • Visibility, specifying:
    • Whether the activity should be Visible to:
      • Students, teachers and observers: This is the default setting for activities intended for students to complete.
      • Teachers and observers: This setting works well for Lesson Guide materials that observers like parents, mentors, etc. need access to. A map icon appears next to these activities in the Activities pages for teachers and observers.
      • Teachers only: This setting works well for Lesson Guide materials that only teachers need. A map icon appears next to these activities in the teacher Activities page.
    • Whether the activity should be Visible in table of contents and/or Visible to students.

    • Whether you want to Restrict visibility by mastery, and, if so, identify the Assignments and/or Objectives the student must successfully master before the activity is visible.
    • An activity Password that students must enter once to access the activity. This is different from assessment-specific passwords, which must be entered each time a student attempts the assessment. These are managed in the Advanced section of the Assessment Settings tab.
  • Completion requirements:
    • Mark as completed when student:
      • Views this activity for a specified time
      • Submits this activity
      • Receives any score

    • Specifying an Attempt minimum for the assessment.
    • Indicating which Scored attempt you want recorded (Last, First, Highest, or Average).
