Creating an Assignment with LMS link

Outcomes Assessment Projects supports several methods for collecting evidence of student learning to be assessed by Evaluators. 

The Learning Management System (LMS) collection method is based on the Project settings and on the Assignment settings. When creating a Project, the Assessment Coordinator will see the following options for evidence collection:


If LMS submission is selected, the students will submit artifacts via the LMS. If Student Artifact Upload is selected, then artifacts can only be uploaded by an Assessment Coordinator or Faculty. If both of them are selected, you will have the option to create assignments for LMS submission, or for Student Artifact (manual) upload.

After the Project is published, you can continue to create an assignment. 

To begin creating an Assignment, navigate to the Manage Evidence area of your Project, click Create Assignment.

Enter a Title in section one. You may enter Instructions for Students and Instructors in section two, however this is optional. In section three, select the Learning Outcomes associated with the Assignment.


Choose the LMS option for Collection of Student Work.


Select all courses from which work will be submitted in the LMS.


Once the courses, where the evidence will be collected from, have been added, a URL will be generated. This URL will be used as the External Tool or Web Link when the Assignment link is created in the LMS. 

Note: A unique URL is generated for each course. A URL cannot be reused.
