Updated on

The faculty coordinator of your faculty also needs to select a setting before the automated marking can take place. Discuss the options with your coordinator.

  • Go to Assessment in the navigation on the left and navigate to the assessment you want to have marked automatically.

You can only publish when all steps have been done:

  1. Give the assessement a name.
  2. Set options for the assessment.
  3. Select a pool of questions.
  4. Create Forms.

Click on Publish
