Admin / Assessment Monitor

By setting the "Blind Assessments" count when Creating an Assignment, the OWL TMS will automatically generate blind assessment requests for the raters on that assignment's roster.

  • The Assessment Monitor shows the status of assessment requests and completed assessments for each response. 
  • Each row on this page represents a potential or completed response to an Assignment (i.e., a testing session)
  • This page can be used to manually request a response be placed into the blind rating pool.
  • To find the page, go to Assessments >> Admin menu >> Assessment Monitor

Assessment Monitor

  • You must first select the assignment you wish to view using the drop down menu at the top-right.
  • To request a new blind assessment, select the response with the checkbox.
    NOTE: Only completed sessions will have an associated checkbox
  • Click the button for a Primary or Secondary Assessment
  • Select from the eligible raters that appear in the dialogue box, and click OK

More Info About How Blind Ratings are Allocated

  • Each rater will only get one opportunity to perform a blind rating on a given response.
  • Suppose a rater has completed a blind rating of a specific test response, if you use then the assessment monitor to request an assessment from [Any Rater] that rater will not get the blind assessment request
  • If you request that rater specifically (from the drop down as in step 4 above), then the WILL receive the response to rate a second time.
  • If you delete the assessment, the response will be placed back into the blind rating pool {see Assessment Request Page} and it will be available to the same rater (or other raters) to rate again
