Using templates

Add more scaffolding and support to your assessment with our assessment templates

Cadmus Templates are a quick way to get started on your assessment instructions. With scaffolding and frameworks built in, they’re designed to give students the context and clarity they need to effectively complete an assessment.

Once you’ve created a Cadmus assessment link, you’ll be directed to the Template Gallery where you can browse through 100+ templates — including common assessment types categorised by discipline, formative academic skill development tasks and activities for introducing students to Cadmus.
