How do I create a deployment for a Gauge assessment?
Once you have created an assessment in Gauge, you can create deployments to deliver the assessment to students. An assessment does not need to have content to schedule a deployment, but you should add content before the assessment start date.
You can schedule multiple deployments for any Gauge assessment. Each deployment can include a unique delivery window and set of recipients.
Gauge automatically checks for new students meeting deployment criteria each hour while a deployment window is open. These students are added to the deployment, which will give them access to the assessment within a few hours after a SIS update.
In Global Navigation, click the Gauge link.
To open an assessment, click the title of the assessment name.
