Need help with something in CougarVIEW? Good news! We have a number of guides to show you how to use the many tools and resources in CougarVIEW. These guides cover topics like using the grade book, setting up quizzes, creating groups, and many more.

Evaluate assignment submissions from Content

You can evaluate a learner's assignment submissions from Content even if the learner didn't submit anything to the assignment. As a result, you can assign comments and grades to learners with no submissions (for example, a grade of 0), and to learners who submitted work outside of Brightspace Learning Environment.
