A Collection is a tool for organizing assessments within Manage Assessments, similar to a folder. The ability to create and manage Collections is controlled by permissions.
This lesson will review how to create and manage a Collection from the Teacher Level user view.
Admin users may want to review the Default Role Permissions article for more information about granting Collections and other permissions for a user level.
To access Collections, the Collections permission in the Assessments tab must be enabled for a user's given role(s). This can be turned on at the Teacher, School, and/or District level, depending on the user access level selected for the role.
- Teacher Level users may create and manage Collections for assessments they create, and may view School and District Collections.
- School Level users may create and manage Collections for School assessments, and may view District Collections.
- District Level users may create and manage Collections for District assessments.
From the Manage Assessments screen, find the assessment that will be added to a new or existing Collection.
In the same row as the assessment name, click on the down arrow (1) on the far right under the Functions column, then select Add to Collection (2).
To place this assessment in a new Collection, select Add New (3), then enter the name of the new Collection and click Save (4).
Or, to add the assessment to an Existing Collection (5), select the name of the Collection from the drop down menu (12). A message will appear confirming this action. Click OK to continue (6).
