    How do I join a group?

    If you are assigned to have group discussions, projects or assignments, your instructor or site administrator may allow you to choose your own group.  From a set of available groups, you can select a group to join in Site Info.

    Manual For Students
  • Manual Site Tools
  • The Tests & Quizzes tool allows you to create online assessments (i.e., tests, quizzes, exams, and surveys) for your students or other groups. It was designed primarily to administer tests, but you may also create assessments to gather survey information or informal course feedback. Grading for most question types is done automatically, and grades can be posted automatically to an online Gradebook.

    This lesson will show you how to create a simple assessment and add a single question.  

  • Questions can be added to a new or existing assessment with the assessment builder.

    In general, the instructor clicks Add, chooses a question type, and supplies the parts that are called for by that question type. This article covers the general settings common to most question types. For additional information on specific question types, please refer to the individual articles for the appropriate question types.

    How can I make tables more accessible?

    How can I make tables more accessible?

    Users of screen readers cannot read tables the same way sighted users do. Sighted users can tell at a glance what column and row a given cell is associated with, but a screen reader user needs a properly coded table. To make tables usable, additional steps will need to be taken to make them accessible.

  • There are two ways in which you can view your site as if you were a student: using the View Site As option, or by creating a UVaCollab guest account with a non-UVa email address (e.g. a personal gmail address), adding the guest account to your site in the Student role, and logging into UVaCollab with that guest account.

    Note: It is not possible for an Owner or Administrator of a collaboration site to use View Site As to see how it looks for site members.  To view a collaboration site as a member, you will need to add a guest account to your site as a Member and log in using that account.

  • Comments posted by students to the Anonymous Feedback tool are completely anonymous.  Individuals in the Teaching Assistant role in a course site are not able to view anonymous feedback.
