Quick Eval Tool

About Quick Eval

Quick Eval is a new tool that allows instructors to see a list of unevaluated learner submissions from all their courses. Submissions from Assignments, Quizzes, and Discussions are displayed in one location to improve efficiency when locating work that requires evaluation and providing feedback to learners.

Educators can sort, filter, and search submissions to prioritize their evaluation work. Sorting can be done using the first or last name of the learner, Activity Name, Course Name, and Submission date. Filtering can be done using one or more of the following categories: Activity Name, Course Name, and Submission Date. Clicking on a user’s name opens an evaluation screen directly from the Quick Eval list where the evaluator can complete their assessment. The search function in Quick Eval allows evaluators to locate submissions for evaluation by searching for a specific user, assignment, quiz, discussion topic, or course.

When learner submissions are evaluated and published, they no longer show up in the Quick Eval list. An empty Quick Eval list gives educators confidence that no learner submissions are pending evaluation.

Can I evaluate Anonymously using Quick Eval?

There is no special anonymous evaluation mode for Quick Eval. If your Assignments, Discussions, and Quizzes are set up to be evaluated anonymously with required user information privacy permissions, then submissions are listed anonymously in Quick Eval. If all activities are not anonymized, then evaluators may see user information on some of the submitted work. If anonymity while evaluating is critical and you are not confident of the setup of Assignments, Quizzes and Discussions, D2L recommends against using Quick Eval.
