EMA Integration: What are the default settings applied to Blackboard assessments?

These settings apply to all assessments directly created in Blackboard by the EMA Integration:

 

Schools which have a single ontime and post-deadline submission point:

Number of Attempts unlimited

Display After date and time =  due date and time as set in RISIS, minus 4 calendar weeks

These settings can be edited by the Programme Administrator.

Display Until date and time:  None

There should not normally be any reason why you would want to set a Display Until date for this type of submission point.  

 

Schools which have separate ontime and post-deadline submission points:

Ontime assignment

Number of Attempts unlimited

Display After date and time =  due date-time as set in RISIS, minus 4 calendar weeks

These settings can be edited by the Programme Administrator.

Display Until date and time =  due date-time as set in RISIS

 

Post-deadline assignment

Number of Attempts single

Display After date and time =  due date-time as set in RISIS
(i.e. same as the ontime Display Until date and time)

These settings can be edited by the Programme Administrator.

Display Until date and time:  None

There should not normally be any reason why you would want to set a Display Until date for this type of submission point.  

 

Caution!If you change the due date for an assessment in RISIS, the Integration will then update the assessment in Blackboard. As well as updating the due date/time, it will also restore the default settings for 
* Display After
* Display Until.
In some circumstances, a submission point which had previously been visible to students will now become unavailable, and if necessary you'll have to manually change the settings in Blackboard.

 

Other settings

Instructions

These are not controlled by the Integration. Add instructions for the assessment as required.

Rubric

This is not controlled by the Integration. Add a Rubric to the assessment as required.

Anonymous Marking

This is not controlled by the Integration.

Blackboard assessments created by the EMA Integration are set  to be marked with student names showing (i.e. Anonymity is switched off).

This setting can be edited by the Programme Administrator – if work is to be marked anonymously, be sure to turn on Anonymity before students start submitting.
