20-080 Assessment Tool


The OpenOlat Assessment tool enables individual or group assessments. It is a central assessment service for assessable course elements. The assessment tool can be used on registered course- or group members in connection with certain course elements, for example Test, Task and Assessment. Assessment feedback can be given as points, Passed/Not passed or individual feedback. The assessment feedback can only be viewed by the individual user.
