Consolidating all aspects of assessment and submission online.
The Assessment Dropbox tool facilitates the submission of student assessment online either as individuals or in groups. Assessment Dropbox Folders can be created and associated with relevant assessment pieces and their due dates, allowing students to quickly and easily submit their work within VU Collaborate.
Once assignments are submitted, you can view them online, download them, check submission times, enter a score, add qualitative feedback, and return submissions with comments, all via the evaluation option within the Dropbox tool.
Each Assessment Dropbox Folder allows for the easy filtering or searching of student work. For example, it is possible to search through users' submitted files by first or last name. It is also possible to withhold final grades by leaving feedback in ‘Draft’ mode. Feedback can then be released in bulk to students once evaluation has been finalised.

You will then need to click on another print icon. If you wish to save this file, instead of printing to a printer change it to “Save As PDF”. You can then save it on your computer or USB as a PDF.
