Adding a Crowdmark Assessment to Your Course

Article Last Updated December 2020

This article describes how instructors can add Crowdmark assessments (assignments and exams) to their course. This type of assessment will transfer your student roster directly from eClass to the Crowdmark system and allow you to set up your assessment as normal on the Crowdmark end. As this is a 3rd party, vendor-supported tool, instructors will need to contact the Crowdmark support centre for assistance with issues.

Please note: At this time, instructors must complete a request form in advance of using Crowdmark as their dean or chair's approval is required in advance of using these types of assessments (the cost per student needs to be paid by the department.)

To add a Crowdmark assessment to your course:

  1. In the desired content section in your course, click on Add an Activity or Resource.

  2. Click on the External Tool activity and click Add (or double-click on External Tool).

  3. In the 'Adding New External tool' interface, give the assessment a name and select Crowdmark Assessment from the 'Preconfigured tool' dropdown box.

  4. Optionally at this point you can also specify a maximum grade for this assessment item in the 'Grade' section.

  5. Click Save and return to course or Save and display when the desired settings are entered.

From your course main page, you can now click the link you just created (the activty name) to access Crowdmark and specify the assessment details as you normally would.
