Welcome back for another exciting school year, we can’t wait to be a part of your classrooms again.
We have added another visibility option for discussion and sketch prompts, the option for “Anonymous After Post.”
It follows the same rules as “After Post” so students can’t see peer ideas until they submit, but now student names are hidden (obviously instructors can see names). The green still shows up so the student/group logged in knows which one was theirs.
Points Based Grading
Instructors wanted to be able to easily hand out points to students as they read posts. Using the dropdown (three horizontal bars) on the top right of every post, there is a new option for assigning points. These “points” are integrated into our rubric based analytics page for quick and easy auto-grading.
If you choose to set points on discussion/sketch prompts, students can see this on the session overview page. Watch the short 1 minute video to see how it works.
We are piloting LMS gradebook integration with several institutions this semester but are not ready to roll it out to everyone. We apologize for this delay and if you require gradebook integration let us know and we will prioritize your request.
Thanks again, looking forward to another great school year.
