Evaluation Defaults - Manage

Evaluation Defaults are used to define the default evaluation for learning object types per evaluation level. The default evaluation appears for all new learning objects created in that learning type. Changing the default evaluation does not change evaluations already associated to learning objects.

To access Evaluation Defaults, go to Admin > Tools > Learning > Catalog Management > Evaluations. Then, click the Evaluation Defaults link in the left-side navigation panel. The Localized Defaults tab opens as the default view of the Evaluation Defaults page.

Localized Defaults Tab

Default evaluations for specific learning object (LO) types per evaluation level are defined on the Localized Defaults tab, both for portals with single languages and multiple languages enabled. One localized evaluation can be set per LO type and evaluation level. Evaluations set on the Localized Defaults tab are used by default. If an LO type does not have an evaluation defined on the Localized Defaults tab, the evaluation defined for the LO on the Non-Localized Defaults tab is used.

To set a default evaluation:

  1. Click Select in the evaluation level column. This opens the Select Evaluation pop-up.
  2. Click the plus sign icon to the left of the evaluation. This adds the evaluation in the evaluation column.

To change the default evaluation:

  1. Click the evaluation name in the evaluation column. This opens the Select Evaluation pop-up.
  2. Click the plus sign to the left of the evaluation. This replaces the evaluation in the evaluation column.

Non-Localized Defaults Tab

Non-Localized Defaults is a read-only tab that displays the default evaluations set for a particular language. From the Enable Language Preferences drop-down, you can select a language to view which default evaluations are defined for a particular language.

While the Non-Localized Defaults tab is read-only by default, a back end setting is available that enables administrators to modify the tab's default evaluation settings. The back end setting is turned off by default and should only be turned on if you would like to modify a non-localized default setting and do not wish not to modify the setting on the Localized Defaults tab.

Note: When defining evaluations for LOs on the Evaluations tab in Course Catalog, evaluations that display as "Default" in the Type column are pulled from the Localized Defaults tab.
