During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

Assessments are gradable activities that use questions you create and/or link from question banks. Each question can be aligned with specific objectives in the course, and student performance on objectives can be used to make formative or remediation assessments.

To align questions with objectives, the objectives must be available in the course: How do I create and/or import objectives?

To align assessment questions with objectives:

  1. Open the Editor from the Main Menu.
  2. Select the desired assessment and click the pencil (edit) icon.
  3. Select the desired question from the list on the left, and scroll to the Objectives section in the panel on the right.
  4. Use the dropdown to limit the displayed objectives to those that are created in the Course, to those inherited from the Parent, or to only the Selected objectives. Any selected objective remains in the list for all three settings.
  5. Check the boxes next to objectives to align them with the activity.
  6. Save.

I have created an assessment in a course that allows teachers/others to add it to THEIR course using the "Library" feature.  The original has had objectives tied to each question so we can get a good sense of how students are hitting certain objectives/standards.  When another teacher pulls this into their course to use, is there a way to do this with the objectives that were already set up?  

I tested pulling this assessment into a course and there are no objectives associated.  I'm wondering how best to have teachers pull this in so they don't need to tie each question to the objective again.  Thanks for any help!

When your teachers are in the library are they clicking copy or link?

I know with images, they are stored locally in the course in which they were created. When a question is copied the images do not come with it. If I link to the original instead, my course is "looking" in the other course for the question (where the image is) so the image is displayed normally in the question. I wonder if objectives have a similar behavior.

I tried both LINK and COPY and neither appeared to bring the objectives over.  Although you solved another problem for me. :) I used some images in my QUESTIONS that were passages and I was getting duplicate passages in my copy.  I have to tinker with that but what you said about it tying back to the source makes sense.

Actually, the duplicate images for passages are a known bug. We submitted a ticket and I assume Agilix is working on that one. We have several practice (homework) activities with images as passages. The image shows up with the questions as it should, but then the image also shows up by itself with no questions. We told our students that when they see that, they just need to click the submit button at the bottom and move on to the next question. It doesn't affect the points or their score. If they don't click submit, though, the server thinks the assignment is incomplete and it won't give them a score.
