Marking: more information for markers

Marking:We’ve added a widget showing maximum score for the assessment you are marking. What is even more important: we’ve added a slidable right panel to the tabs in Marking showing more details on the particular assessment / session you are marking:

This slider contains info such as:

  • Percentage to Pass
  • Max total score 
  • Manual scoring: number of questions that need manual scoring
  • Times the assessment was submitted
  • Time allowed for the assessment
  • High level statistics

Archiving Schedules

By popular request we've improved the UI for Schedules. By default you will see only activated schedules and Drafts. Schedules with the deadline in the past or which have been manually archived will show up under "Archived". Current assessments need a one-time manual cleanup: check them and press the 'Archive'-button.

Improvements to user management

Admin > Users: Improved user management: columns Created and Last logged in have been added. You can now also filter on type of user. More improvements will follow!
