Assessor Pools

Assessor Pools are used to send a submission to one or more Assessors within a group. The submission desination is automatic, meaning that the student does not select the group to which the submission will be sent.

The pool settings dictate which Assessor(s) within the pool will receive the submission to assess. If only one Assessor has membership in the pool, they will automatically receive the submission to assess.
