What information is in a Tests & Quizzes email notification?

Below are screen shots with examples of email notifications you can receive for submissions from Tests & Quizzes.  The notifications correspond to the ways in which an assessment can be submitted:

  1. Manual submission: A student selects Submit for Grading on the Assessment Submission Warning screen to confirm submission.
  2. Timer submission: The timer expires on a timed assessment and automatically submits the assessment for the student.
  3. Automatic submission: An instructor has configured an assessment to Autosubmit saved student work.  A student saves content in the assessment and exits it before the latest submission date, so the assessment remains In Progress.  The saved assessment is automatically submitted at the latest submission date provided no other attempt has been submitted.

Content of all notifications

All Tests & Quizzes email notifications contain the following:

  • The title of the site where the assessment was taken,
  • The title of the assessment,
  • The student's name and UVA computing ID or non-UVA guest email address,
  • A submission ID for the assessment,
  • The date the assessment was submitted,
  • A confirmation number for the submission (this confirmation number also displays on the submission confirmation screen after a student submits an assessment),
  • The assessment due date (if the instructor or site administrator selected one),
  • The site ID (this is the ID that appears in the link to the UVACollab site where the assessment was taken).
