In this article, we will take a look at the instructor's dashboard on Application Cases to gain a more in-depth understanding of the presented features.
This article contains the following sections:
- Fixed at the top of the screen, you will see the Activity Clock which will allow you to :
- Extend or deduct time off your activity
- Open the clock in a new tab
This is the type of Application that is set for this activity (either Team or Individual and Graded or Ungraded)
These are the settings of the test on how the students will answer the activity.
- TEST DURATION
This tells how long teams/students have to answer this activity
- AVERAGE COMPLETION TIME
This tells how long the class has taken to answer each question.
Attendance for Section
- The Search Bar can be used to look up students in attendance using the first and last name, as well as the team name.
- Notice the green checked avatar. This means that the student (John Smith) has entered and is ready to take the activity.
- The gray-x avatar on the other hand means these students haven't entered this activity.
- The gamepad icon indicates the assignment Team Reporter for each team. A green gamepad icon tells you who the Team Reporter is, responsible for navigating through and answering the questions on behalf of the team during team-based activities. You can select who the Team Reporter would be by clicking on the gamepad designated for that student.
- You can freeze or lock the Team Reporter assignments by clicking on the padlock icon next to the team names. Green means the Team Reporter can still be switched and assigned among members, Red means the Team Reporter assignment is locked and can no longer be changed.
- Before starting the activity, ask the students to click Enter Test button. It is recommended to check the attendance block to see which students have entered the test (Greens), which would mean that they are online and can access the test. Check-in with students who haven't entered the test (the gray colored ones) and see what might be causing delays.
- % Teams who may time out. "Teams-who-may-time-out" are teams who haven't answered all the questions in the activity (hence, showing 100%). The percentage bar will automatically decrease as teams/ students finish answering the test.
- In this example: 5 out of 5 Teams in the section have not finished the test and are still in answering. These teams "may time-out" or might run out of time without finishing the test.
- Check this progress bar together with the timer. If the timer almost out and the percentage bar is still high, then it might be a good idea to extend the timer.
- % Teams who have answered all questions. These are teams who have saved an answer for all the questions in this activity. The percentage bar will automatically increase as teams finish answering the test (or has saved an answer for all questions).
- In this example: 1 out of 5 teams in the section has finished answering all the questions.
- % Teams who have submitted: "Teams-who-have-submitted" are teams who have clicked the "Submit Test" button. It's the same as passing the test papers to the teacher. The percentage bar will automatically increase as teams submit their tests.
- In this example: none of the teams have submitted yet.
ⓘ HERE are some useful information
- If you see the red-bar "% Teams who may time out" still high and the timer is running out, it would be a good idea to extend the timer so that students would be able to keep answering the test.
- The system automatically locks the student out once the timer is finished. Therefore, to avoid disruption in answering the activity, watch the red bar and decide whether you need to extend the timer or not.
- Fail Rate
- This is the percentage of students who got the answer wrong.
- Clicking the sorting icons will arrange the fail rate from greatest to least or vice versa.
- These are the questions in this activity.
- Click the question number and it opens the question stem and provided answer choices.
- Answer Options
- Scroll through the answer options from left to right.
- The percentages show the rate of students who have chosen the answer option.
- NOTE: Free Response questions do not have any answer option percentages.
- The points allotted for each question which was set up when the teacher created the test.
- AVG. Time
- This is the average time the teams/students have spent answering a specific question.
- Learners Finished
- Shows the percentage of the entire class who has answered that specific question.
- % Correct
- The opposite of the fail rate. Shows the percentage of the class who got the answer to this question correct.
Monitor student's answers to specific questions from the Questions Block as they come in real-time. The Questions block will show you the teams/students who have not answered yet, which answer options each team/student has chosen, elaboration (if any), and a percentage bar graph of responses. It'll give you insights on how the conversation with students would go when you start your discussion.
