1. Access Pending Assessments

This lesson will teach you how to locate a Regular Assessment. A Regular Assessment occurs when a Student submits work to their Assessor, and the work is assessed directly within Chalk & Wire. The Assessment Instrument and student work are presented together on the same screen, where the assessor chooses a level for each criterion, and can leave various types of comments.

Step 1: Access Your Pending Assessments

There are two ways to access your Pending Assessments:

  • Using the Pending Assessments tab on your Dashboard
  • Using the Main Menu to access Assessment and Assess



Once logged in, you will be directed to your account's Dashboard. Use the various tabs to view an Overview of your account, Portfolios, Pending Assessments, Performance, Upcoming assignments, and Surveys.

Additionally, you have the option to select any tab and set it as your Default Tab. This will make the selected default tab the first item that you see the next time that you log in to your account, and every time after. The Default Tab can be changed at any time.

Your pending assessments will appear in chronological order from oldest at the top to most recent at the bottom. Select the submission you wish to assess by clicking anywhere in the table row for the submission and selecting the Assess option from the menu that appears.
