Creating and adding evaluation objects to the course tree

Home » Course Builder » Creating your course’s structure Creating and adding evaluation objects to the course tree

After adding activity objects (discussions, dropbox folders, and quizzes) to your course structure, you can associate them with evaluation objects (grade items and learning objectives). If an evaluation object is already associated with an activity, that association appears in the evaluation object’s details when you browse objects. At the same time, an activity object displays Grading Details when it is associated with an evaluation object.

  1. From the Add Content section of the toolbox, do one of the following:
    • Drag an evaluation object type onto a discussion, dropbox folder, or quiz in the course tree.
