External Assessors

External Assessors are members of a learning community who do not have Elentra accounts. Examples could include social workers, patients, allied health professionals, etc. External assessors can be included in distributions and learners can initiate tasks to external assessors.

When an external assessor is created their name and email are stored but they do not have a complete user record in Elentra. We avoid duplication of external assessor records by having the system check email addresses.

Existing external assessors will display at the end of a list of users when searching for a user when creating a distribution.

If a learner searches for an existing external assessor to initiate a task to, the name will display with other returned results and the assessor will be labelled as external on the user card.

Note that allowing learners to add external assessors when initiating a task is an option controlled through a database setting. If you don't see the option for learners to add an external assessor and you'd like them to be able to, ask a developer to enable cbme_ondemand_start_assessment_add_assessor in the settings table.
