What it does

In the Oncourse portfolio environment, the Evaluations tool allows users with appropriate permissions to see a list of matrix cells awaiting evaluation, as well as to review and evaluate the artifacts and reflections associated with each cell. After each item is evaluated, it is removed from the list of pending evaluations to help evaluators manage and track the work assigned to them.

By default, the following information is given for each matrix cell listed in the Evaluations tool:

  • Cell title
  • Owner (the name of the person who submitted the cell)
  • Date received (date the cell was submitted for evaluation)
  • Type (i.e., matrix cell)

Some portfolio projects prefer to use a blind review process in which evaluators cannot see the name of the owner of each item. Owner information can be hidden in matrix cells by turning off the "Can view/access user list and cell owner" permission for evaluators in the corresponding matrix.

Things to consider

  • Evaluators must be assigned to a given item to see it in the Evaluations tool. Evaluators are assigned on a per cell basis via the Add Evaluators link.
