An Assessment Plan contains multiple different assessment tasks that are linked to a qualification. Utilising assessment plans allows you to quickly link multiple assessment tasks to a class or workshop instance. These plans are imperative to successfully utilising assessment tasks and assessment authoring to their full capacity.

Controlling access to assessments
Access to assessments is controlled via the dates associated with the task (or the enrolment, if these are overridden for an individual student enrolment). These can be dynamically calculated if the offsets are set up as part of a plan prior to setting up the class; these offsets use the unit enrolment start/end dates to calculate the access start/end dates and the due date. The dates can also be changed post-enrolment.
The assessment access date options are defined as below:
The date the participant can access the assessment description
The date the participant can completely access the assessment, including any questions, and make submissions
The due date of the assessment
The last date the participant can access the assessment
Note: Although there is currently no explicit support for dependencies, it is possible to manually control this process via these dates so that the student only has access to assessments at particular intervals.
