Set up an Assessment Book (not a PLG)

What is an Assessment Book?

Once you have created an Assessment Framework the next step is to setup an Assessment book.

Assessment Books gives a summary page where you can easily see and access all the Evidence that has been gathered for the learners and which items/outcomes that they have been linked to.

They are a powerful tool in reviewing a Learner's progress and all the inputs from the multi-disciplinary team and they can also be used in planning teaching and interventions.

Assessment Books also have the optional feature of allowing Assessment Users to assess and to record professional judgements. 

Usually, Assessment books are setup for each Class or Group of Learners. You can set up as many Assessment Books as you need.

Assessment Books are setup using an iPad and within the Cloud Admin menu. 

Here's a video that demonstrates how to make an Assessment Book:
