I love being able to force submit those few kids that ‘forget’ to click the submit button. However, I agree with @mervin… until a ‘submit all’ option is available this won’t be much faster than hand-calculating scores. Sometimes, I too,
Time limits are great for bell ringers/exit tickets, or simply for holding students responsible for meeting a deadline. If there was a way to either toggle between formative & standard grading OR a way to select all or multiple students to ‘force submit’ it would be much better.
I also have the same problem as @jenny.santiano. Many students try to ‘game’ the system. I already have students who refuse to answer X number of questions because they meet the ‘mastery’ percentage I have for my class.However, even the hard-working kids are confused. Their dashboard shows ‘green’ 100% and they skip the assignment because it looks ‘done.’
To segue off her other comment…
… the toggle feature for the Tracker would be awesome as well. It seems to me that the Tracker and the Response pages are using the same coding. The Tracker used to show scores only for those assignments that had been started. Then the Tracker was changed to show colors… and all the non-attempted assignments showed as 0% (red). This in turn, added an option in the Feature Vote to stop those assignments from being ‘red’… and the ‘standards based grading’ coding was implemented.
To wrap up, I use both types of grading in my class. When the scores were points-based, I could easily convert to standards-based (or participation scores) or even ‘curve’ the scores based on the most problems attempted during a set time. However, taking a ‘standards based’ grading system and converting it into a points-based system takes A LOT of time. So much time that it would take more time to build a formative and convert it for my purpose… then it would to just give the kids a worksheet and grade it by hand.
