Assign a teaching assistant or associate instructor to a section in DigitalDesk

DigitalDesk streamlines the review of results from paper Scantron forms for instructors at Indiana University Bloomington. For more, see About DigitalDesk at IU Bloomington.

Users in the Teacher, Co-Instructor, Librarian, TA, and Grader roles can view and edit student grade information. Any user who will hold one of these roles must complete the IU FERPA Tutorial for Staff before being assigned to the role.

In DigitalDesk, to assign a teaching assistant (TA) or associate instructor (AI) to a section:

  1. Go to Scanning Results: Digital Desk in One.IU, and click Start.
  2. Log into CAS using your IU username and passphrase; this requires Two-Step Login (Duo).

    You'll see the DigitalDesk "Instructor Tools" dashboard, which displays the status of exams processed the current day, as well as messages from the system administrator.

  3. On your DigitalDesk dashboard, in the menu bar at the top, click Settings.
  4. Under "Sections", use the drop-down list to select the desired section. (Teacher assistances can search by course.)
  5. Enter the IU username for the AI or TA; alternatively, enter the person's email address or university ID number. Then, click Search.
  6. When prompted, confirm your selection.
  7. Click Add TA.
