Intro to the Cadmus Teacher Environment

Get familiar with the Cadmus interface for teachers

The Cadmus Teacher Environment is where you create assessment instructions and manage student submissions. To access it, you’ll have to create a Cadmus Assignment link in the Learning Management System (LMS)


In the Cadmus Teacher environment, you'll find these tabs:



The Instructions tab is where you write and release your assessment. It has two views: 

  • Edit which allows you to edit the requirements, instructions and resources for the assignment. 
  • Released where you can view the latest version of your assessment instructions that have been released to students in the Cadmus Student Environment

While in Edit mode, you’ll see the formatting toolbar at the top.

Cadmus Assignment instructions follow a structured format, broken up into three sections:

TIP: If your assignment has been used in previous study periods, and you wish to reuse the assessment instructions, you can roll over assignments. From there, simply set the new dates, and Release the assignment.

Once you’re happy with your assessment, you can release it to students by clicking Release in the top-right corner. This will take you to the Instructions page in Released mode. While on the instructions page in Released mode, you’ll see a menu in the top-left to access the My Class page. You can also click Edit Instructions if you ever need to update your instructions. This will take you back to your instructions in Edit mode.

In the Progress tab, you’ll see your full class list. You can use this list to keep track of students that are enrolled in the subject, have started (ie. started writing or started a time-limited assessment), submitted draftssubmitted finals for marking, and accessed feedback. Students will appear in this list once you sync your LMS class roster with the Cadmus class list, or once they access Cadmus for the first time.

You'll also find a range of assessment management options, like syncing the class list with the LMS class roster, setting up groups, and more.




If your assessment requires draft submissions, you’ll also see a Drafts tab between Progress and Marking. From here you’ll be able to view draft submissions and provide individual feedback to students by clicking Feedback next to a student's name.




Previously called the Finals tab, this is where student work will appear for grading. You can find high-level statistics on the marking rate and submission rate of these submissions at the top.

Students will also be shown in alphabetical order by default, but you can use the filters and headings to sort.

Clicking Mark next to a student's name opens their submission in your chosen marking tool for grading.


Integrity Assurance

As students are working, the Integrity Assurance tab will display analytics about their working behaviours and patterns in an overview. This is intended to provide you with further insights and evidence when looking into misconduct, or validating that students were working authentically. Watch our video on the Integrity Assurance page here.

From the Insights page, you'll be able to access the learning analytics and student engagement data for your assessment. You'll see this data update daily throughout the course of the assessment. Once the assessment is complete and the return date has passed, you'll then see a final summary of student engagement in the task. Learn more about Cadmus Insights.
