    What is the Lessons tool?

    The Lessons tool allows instructors to organize resources, media, and activities that are housed in other tools in the course site or elsewhere on the web. By creating direct links to these items on one or more lessons pages, instructors can simplify the navigation of their courses for their students, and also exercise more control over when and how students access course content.  

    Unlike most other tools, multiple instances of the Lessons tool may be added to a single course site, meaning that instructors may organize all of their items on a single lessons page or create separate pages for individual units, topics, or course meetings.

    Note: For instructions on how to add this or any other tool to your site, see How do I add tools to my site?

    Manual Site Tools
  • Manual Site Tools
  • Below are screen shots with examples of the email notifications you'll receive if you've selected to receive email for submissions from Tests & Quizzes.  There are several types of notifications, corresponding to the different ways in which an assessment can be submitted:

    1. Manual submission: A student clicks the Submit for Grading button on the Assessment Submission Warning screen to confirm submitting an assessment.
    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 after latest acceptance date, unless student has previously submitted.  A student saves content in the assessment and exits it before the latest acceptance date, so the assessment remains In Progress.  The saved assessment is automatically submitted at the latest acceptance date provided no other attempt has been submitted.

  • When a student clicks the Submit for Grading button on the last page of an assessment or the Table of Contents, they are taken to an Assessment Submission Warning screen to confirm their submission.  If they do not click the final Submit for Grading button to confirm, and the assessment is NOT timed, their responses may be saved, but the assessment will remain In Progress.

    Instructors do not have access to the content of In Progress assessments.  On the Total Scores screen, students with incomplete submissions would be listed as having No Submission recorded.

    However, if a student has not yet submitted a copy of an untimed assessment, an instructor can retrieve their submission using the Automatic Submission (Autosubmit) feature in Tests & Quizzes.
