Assess Students ✍️

Assessment is a fundamental part of the learning process. Great assessment isn’t just about a pass/fail at the end of the course, but rather ongoing feedback that allows students to adapt to guidance from educators.

Use the tools in this section to

  • Assign and receive formal assignments and assessments from students
  • Conduct formative and summative assessments for learners
  • Provide feedback to improve students progress

Choosing the right tool

Where it makes sense, try a Preferred tool first; these tools integrate well with Aula and will likely be a better experience for you and your students. However, if that doesn’t meet your needs, look for a Supported tool as these are also recommended and available for use. Finally, you may be able to get access to a tool in the Managed section, but these are not available to all staff.

If you know another tool which might work, talk about it with your Associate Head (Student Experience) to see how to proceed.

Supported Tools

These tools are supported by IT Services or other university staff and available to the wide majority of educators. While they may not provide as seamless an experience with Aula as a Preferred tool, they often have a different set of features which may be more suitable for your module.

Managed Tools

Sometimes taking the road less travelled makes all the difference. Managed use tools aren’t available to all staff, so check with your Associate Head (Student Experience) if one of these looks best suited to your needs.
