Create an assignment by pressing the + Create button and select "Assignment".
Attention! It is mandatory to set a PIN to resume an assignment. If you don't you will not be able to proceed to create.
You will now have a number of basic assignment settings before proceeding.
NOTE! After pressing "Create" you will not be able to change allowed security clients or to Anonymize Submissions. If you have already made an Assignment that you want to change into, you can choose to copy the exam and create a new one.
Anonymous submissions are created in Google Drive 45 minutes after the Assignment deadline.
See the article Create Anonymous Assignments
Create calendar event for an Assignment
You can choose to invite all teachers and students or only all teachers to a Google calendar event for the Assignment.
Those who have been invited to the assignment will receive a calendar event in their Google calendar that describes how to start the test.
The start and deadline for the assignment give the frame for when the assignment is available to the student. The time limit determines the number of minutes the student has to write the assignment within the frame
There are three different types of PINs to put to the assignment.
- To start the assignment - To check that all students can log in to their devices and start the exam before they start writing. For example, before national exams.
- To resume the assignment - If a student has submitted an exam and you as a teacher choose to let the student resume the assignment, this PIN code is used.
- To submit an assignment - If you want the student not to be able to submit the test before you as a teacher has checked it, use this PIN code.
You can choose the type of device that the student writes their assignment on. Keep in mind that if you combine security clients, there may be some limitations.
The "Unsafe mode (Web browser) is an insecure mode and should not be used to write secure assignments but only to test Trelson in a web browser.
Chromebook (Kiosk app and Focus)
This option is for students who have Chromebooks. The kiosk app is located on the page where they sign in to their Chromebooks.
If you choose to use the Trelson Focus add-on it needs to be installed by your administrator. There should be an icon on the student's computer that indicates this:
To start the exam, students simply go to Trelson Assessment and when they open the exam, the extension will lock down their device.
To allow students to use the iPad when writing assignments in Trelson, the teacher needs to allow submissions using the iPad when creating the assignment. Students only need to install and open the app when writing assignments with their iPad.
NOTE! The app will remember the password of all users who have logged in until they clear the history and website data for Safari in settings.
Windows and Mac OS (Safe Exam Browser)
Safe Exam Browser is needed to securely write tests with Trelson Assessment on Windows and Mac OS devices.
Note that SEB should NOT be used on a Chromebook (Chrome OS).
Safe Exam Browser is specially developed to be used for test writing on MAC or PC in a safe way. As Safe Exam Browser is the program that ensures that students' computers are locked down on Windows and MAC OS, it is important that students install and test Safe Exam Browser before a test session with Trelson starts.
Here you set accessibility options for the whole group of students who write the assignment.
