A Quick Eval link has been added to the LEARN homepage navbar for faculty members. Quick Eval offers instructors a single location to view all learner submissions that are awaiting evaluation. Submissions made to Assignments, Quizzes, and Discussions are displayed in a sortable list and can be selected to take you directly to their assessment page. Unfortunately, the tool can only be used by individuals who are faculty members with the role of instructor in a specific course. Instructors can sort, filter, and search submissions to prioritize their evaluation work.
