Using Quick Eval for Grading

Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence


Quick Eval aggregates all assignments that need to be evaluated. Instead of going to each assignment, quiz, or discussion, Quick Eval allows you to access all activities that need to be graded in a single place. Choose whether you want to see one course's activities or all your active courses at once.
