Quick Eval

Quick Eval aggregates all assignments that need to be evaluated. Instead of going to each assignment, quiz, or discussion, Quick Eval allows you to access all activities that need to be graded in a single place. You choose whether you want to see one course's activities or all your active courses at once. 

An Overview of Quick Eval

Quick Eval is located on your main Brightspace dashboard (not within a specific course). You can view activity by Submissions or Activities.

Submissions – An exhaustive list of everything that needs to be graded. You can sort by student name, activity name, course, or date by clicking the top headings. This is good for looking up a specific student’s work.

Activities – A list of courses with their corresponding activities. This is useful for evaluating all work for a specific assignment, quiz, or discussion.

Use filters to see only the results you need.

  1. Click on the filter button to open the filter options.
  2. To filter only on a specific Activity, Course or Date, click the preferred option at the top of the Filter By box.


If you are in a course and want to see all courses there is no need to go back to the Brightspace dashboard.  You can access multiple course evals by choose the more icon (...) and Multi-Course Quick Eval.
