How will it work?
REVIEW can now be configured to automatically send marks to a column in the UTSOnline BlackBoard (Bb) Grade Centre or the Canvas Gradebook (accessed via the ‘Marks’ menu item in Canvas). The process is straightforward and requires very few additional steps in REVIEW.
Once set up, marks will be automatically transferred from REVIEW to the UTSOnline (Bb) Grade Centre or the Canvas Gradebook as soon as they are published in REVIEW. Similarly, marks will be cleared from the UTSOnline (Bb) Grade Centre or Canvas Gradebook when they are un-published in REVIEW.
How do I set up REVIEW for grades submission?
Creating New Tasks
When creating a new REVIEW task the Sync with LMS check box will be automatically ticked:
Saving the task will automatically create a column in the Grade Centre or Gradebook of the linked subject. For example:
All Grade Centre and Gradebook columns created by REVIEW will:
- Have a title composed of the word REVIEW followed by the name of the task as displayed in REVIEW, e.g. “REVIEW Assessment Task 1”
- Be out of 100 points
- Be set to be included in Grade Centre/Gradebook calculations
NOTE: Subject coordinators will still need to specify the weightings given to each column when configuring the System Weighted total column in UTSOnline (Bb) or Canvas.
Cloning Existing Tasks
After cloning your task simply:
- Set the Task to Active and
- Check the Sync with LMS check box
This will automatically create a Grade Centre/Gradebook column in your subject.
How do I transfer marks from REVIEW to UTSOnline(Bb)/Canvas?
Publishing marks in REVIEW will automatically transfer them to UTSOnline(Bb)/Canvas. Un-publishing a mark in REVIEW will clear any marks in UTSOnline(Bb)/Canvas that were previously transferred from REVIEW.
How do I know if marks have been sent to/cleared from UTSOnline(Bb)/Canvas?
After publishing, you’ll see a message confirming that marks have been queued for sending or clearing. For example:
You can check if marks have been successfully transferred on the REVIEW marking page. For example:
Marks will be in one of the following statuses:
- Pending – waiting to be sent to UTSOnline(Bb)/Canvas
- Processing – being sent to UTSOnline(Bb)/Canvas
- Transferred – successfully sent to UTSOnline(Bb)/Canvas
The same status messages will be displayed when marks are cleared by un-publishing them in REVIEW.
