Managing sections or multiple versions of an assigned assessment

Managing versions with sections

If you wish to distribute an assigned assessment to multiple sections, we recommend creating a separate Crowdmark assessment for each section. Each assessment can have a different due date and different question content if you wish.

  1. Ensure that your course has sections enabled. You can check this by navigating to your Course settings and making sure This course has sections is checked.

  2. If you haven’t already, update your student roster to include sections. See Managing students in a course for instructions.
  3. Create the first assessment. After entering an assessment name, select the section of students who will be writing the assessment from the Students dropdown. Finish creating the assessment.

  4. Duplicate the first assessment by clicking the Create assessment button in the course and selecting Duplicate existing. This will duplicate the assessment questions and prompt you to choose the students and details (due date, etc.) for the next section. Finish creating the assessment.

  5. Repeat Step #4 for each section.
  6. If any versions of the assessment have different question content, you can navigate to the assessment page and click Questions on the left sidebar to make changes to the questions before distributing the assessment.

  3. Repeat Step #2 for each version.
  4. If any versions of the assessment have different question content, you can navigate to the assessment page and click Questions on the left sidebar to make changes to the questions before distributing the assessment.
