The course element Assessment provides a space to assess performances that cannot be explicitly submitted electronically, like for example presentations and other oral test performances. Moreover, this assessment can be used in combination with other course elements, for example the participant folder. Assessable course elements like the test, the self-test, task, grouptask, tally list and portfolio task do not need the separate course element assessment.
