VU Collaborate provides a comprehensive suite of assessment tools.

A key feature of assessment in VU Collaborate is the Assessment Dropbox. The Dropbox tool is where you view student assignment submissions associated with each assessment. Student submissions associated with an assessment is located in a dedicated folder. To submit an assignment, students simply upload their assignment document to the relevant Dropbox folder and click on the Submit button. Assessment Dropbox tool also allows you to set up OriginalityCheck/Turnitin for the assessment submission. 

The Gradebook is a repository for student grades. It is possible to link the Assessment Dropbox to the Gradebook so that grades are published automatically to students.

The Quiz tools category includes instructions for standard quizzes, self-assessments, surveys and use of the Question Library.

Attendance can be marked within VU Collaborate by using an Attendance register.

Awards and badges can be awarded to students as they progress through online content or complete a task.

ePortfolio is a powerful tool that can be used by staff and students for storing, organising, reflecting on and sharing items. ePortfolio items can be submitted to the Assessment Dropbox. 

Note: Assessment should follow the expectations set out in the Assessment for Learning – Standards for Assessment Procedure, read in conjunction with the Assessment for Learning Policy
