Quick Eval

What is Quick Eval

SLATE supports grading in multiple ways, but Quick Eval offers faculty the most streamlined and efficient grading experience. Quick Eval offers evaluators a single location to view all learner submissions awaiting evaluation. Submissions to Assignments, Quizzes, and Discussions are displayed in a sortable list and can be selected to take you to their assessment page. 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. Once you complete an evaluation, you can either publish your feedback, or save it as a draft and then return to the Quick Eval list to continue evaluating. Any assessment awaiting evaluation, or with its evaluation saved in draft status, displays in Quick Eval.
