eLumen Instructions: Adding and Planning an Assessment

Those with discipline coordinator access in eLumen can add assessments and plan, or push out, those assessments to course sections. This makes it easier for the instructor entering assessment data because he doesn't have find an assessment or add one of his own. It also maintains consistency among your assessments.
