How to Enable Evaluation for VoiceThread Assignments

Posted on March 15, 2019

If you intend to create a graded assignment using VoiceThread, there is one important setting you must modify when creating the VoiceThread Presentation in Blackboard: Enable Evaluation.

By default, Enable Evaluation is set to No. This setting will allow you to create Course View, Home, and Individual VT presentations with no associated grading column.

Setting Enable Evaluation to Yes will allow you to enter the Points Possible for this activity, along with a Due Date, if needed.

With Enable Evaluation set to Yes, you will now be able to create a VT Assignment with an associated grading column.

More information regarding graded assignments in VoiceThread can be found in a previous blog post.
