1. Create a Cadmus Assignment link

Create a Cadmus Assignment link in your LMS unit page.

Welcome to Cadmus. Through these videos we’ll give you an overview of what it’s like to run a Cadmus Assignment in your unit - taking a look at both the teacher and student environments. We’ll take you through all the stages of an assessment, from setting up a link, right through to returning grades and feedback.

So let’s get started by creating a Cadmus Assignment link in your LMS. You can create one in the Assessments section of your subject page by selecting Cadmus Assignment from the assessment drop-down menu. Add a name, and a description. We’d recommend using this space to remind your students that all their work should be completed in Cadmus, which is where they’ll find all the assessment information as well. They’ll only be able to access Cadmus from a computer, and we’ve found the best experience is when they use Chrome as their internet browser - so let’s add in a note about this too.

In the grading section below, you’ll have to select Yes for Enable Evaluations. This ensures that all the grades will pull through from Cadmus to Grade Centre when you’re marking. Next, you can set a value for Points Possible. This sets the maximum points value for the grade centre column. Since the assignment I’m setting up is worth 20% of the unit, I’ll set this to 20. Visible to Students, controls whether students are able to see the column in grade centre. We’d recommend hiding the column until you’re ready to release marks to students — so I’m going to set this to No.

In the Options section, set Permit users to view this content, depending on whether you’d like to hide or show the assignment link from students.

Finally, click Submit to save your Cadmus Assignment link. To go to the Cadmus Teacher Environment, simply click on the link, and then click ‘Go to Cadmus’. Now, we’re ready to jump in and set the assignment requirements and instructions.
