3. Reporting on Assessment Data
Once an assessment has been completed, you probably want to run through the results and see how your students did on your assessment. We have a number of pre-built assessment reports that we will help you analyze the data from multiple angles. The initial report is our overview report. This is the most popular report to give you an “at-a-glance” view of your assessment. The more standards and tags that are applied to your items, the more breakdown analysis you will see within this report.
Learning Management System
Our learning management system is the next product that we are going to be offering to our free teachers and districts. We have adjusted some of resources to try and get this product done sooner rather than later. But lets looks at some of the feature that are going to be available within our leaning management system.
1. Send Assignments to a Class
This is an obvious peice of functionality that will be made available. Teacher can easily send out an assignment to a class with a configured start date and end date. (due date) When scoring an assignment, teachers can choose to grade on a basic rubric or an advanced rubric. Our advanced rubric can be created custom by the teacher to allow them to score assignments based on multiple criteria. Each student will be able to type in their response for the assignment or upload attachments for the teacher to review. Once an assignment is completed, the teacher and student can have a digital discussion within the assignment view.
2. Export Grades
Once an assignment is graded, a teacher can quickly exports all those grades to a CSV file. Furthermore, we are developing direct connections to a number of popular gradebooks. Once a direct connection is setup with one of these popular gradebooks, a teacher can send scores for that assignment directly to the gradebook with the click of a button.
3. Announcements, Polling, Questions, and Discussion
Besides posting assignments on a course feed, teachers can post information on the course feed, or they can post pieces of content that students can interact with. Did you want to ask your class a quick survey question? Simply create a survey assignment type and send that out to your class. Did you want to create a discussion topic and allow students to response not only to the discussion topic, but each other? With our learning management system, you can create these discussion topics for each of y0ur classes. These topics can be locked at a later date, or you can set them up to auto lock.
4. Misc Features and Enhancements
One quick thing we wanted to bring to your attention is that all text entry points are rich-text entry points. What this means is that you and your students can post youtube videos, images, links, embedded tweets, audio and so much more. We created a platform that was meant to share thoughts and information quickly and easily. We also have the ability to “tag” teachers and students within these rich-text response. Anyone that is tags in a thread will get a notification about the “tagging” and the tagged user can click on the notification to get right to the piece of content. Finally, we have integrated social reactions for teachers and students to be able to react socially to specific pieces of content. All of these features are configurable and can be turned on/off for one or all of your classes.
