Assessment tool

FELIX 20-080

What you need to know

FELIX enables individual or group-specific assessment via the assessment tool. This works in connection with certain course elements (test, task, assessment) and registered course or group participants (see Helpcard 10-030 or 30-010).
Assessment is possible in the form of points, pass/fail and by means of individual feedback. The given assessment can only be seen by the respective user.

What you have to do

  1. In your course, under "Administration", click "Assessment tool".

    • The assessment tool will open. You are on the overview page.

    • The "Overview" offers
      - display and access to all or individual orders assigned to you (to be processed) (first entry under Overview)
      - access to the assessable course elements (structure on the left)
      - quick access to the participants and any existing groups (centre).
      - an overview of open assignments, i.e. assignments that still need to be corrected, and open assessments that are to be released for visibility (centre)
      - a notification service (bottom left)
      - the option of bulk assessment (evaluation of several participants/ top right).

  2. You have three options to assess course elements:

    • Select the "Orders" option (on the left) under "Overview" and, depending on the tab selected, you can view and edit the list of participants with "Open reviews", "Open levels/gradings" or "Reviews to release".

    • In the respective tab, you as the owner and course coach can view/edit all or the students assigned to you or their open assignments.
      Group coaches can only view/edit students assigned to the respective group.

    •  You must click on "Assess" at the end of the line of each respective student to access the assessment mode.

    • Select the course name on the left (cube symbol) or click on "X participants" in the middle of the overview under Participants. You may have to switch from the "Overview" tab to the "Participants" tab.

    • You have all students available for selection and can click on a name to call up and assess all the student's course elements in an overview.

    • You select (on the left) a course element to be assessed and have a choice of all students.

    • You can assess an individual student in the selected course element by clicking on a name.

    • With the filter options above the table you can filter both procedures, e.g. according to a certain group.

  3. Choose one of the above procedures and select a course element, the student or " Assess" according to the procedure.

    • The detailed view of the assessment opens.

    • Depending on the course element, you can view the set task here and retrieve the submitted files or select the test results.
      With the "Assessment" course element, you can assess an assignment which is not connected to another course element.

  4. Enter the appropriate grade.

    • The type of assessment (points, pass/fail or feedback) is configured for the respective course element in the course editor.

  5. You can select "Intermediate save" or "Finalize assessment and release".

    • When saving temporarily, the assessment is only visible to students if you select "Intermediate save and release".

    • A finalized assessment is immediately visible to the course participant.
      If you do not want this, click on the drop-down menu under "Finalize assessment and release" and select "Finalize assessment" with the crossed-out eye symbol.
      This crossed-out eye symbol stands for not visible or not released.

    • With the "Reopen assessment" button you can still make changes to the assessment afterwards.

  6. Close the Assessment tool by clicking on the red cross in the upper right corner.

    • Students can view the assessment in the course view via the respective course element.

    • Please bear in mind that 90 days after a student's de-registration, his or her data will be deleted from FELIX in accordance with the data protection regulations (DSGVO). We recommend you archive exam-relevant data directly after the end of the semester. To do so, click on "Archive tool" under "Administration" in your course and select the relevant course element.
