What’s in a Gradebook?

In short: All the things. Your students (or corporate learners), divided by class or section. Your activities, listed all in a row. Plus grades, participation scores, and rankings, in one time-saving table.

It works like this…

You have multiple choice activities, set up with at least one correct answer selected, like so:

When you present the activity, collect responses, and show the correct answer, it looks like this:

Later, when you get back to your office and check how your classes performed that day, you’ll see all those correct/incorrect responses in Gradebook, like this:

Obviously, being the clever polling maven that you are, you will have many more polls on your chart than just one. Gradebooks are a very helpful tool to keep all students’ response data in one convenient place.

What about ungraded questions?

Open response questions, i.e. Word Clouds and Q&A activities, do not have a grading option. Those activities, and any ungraded Multiple Choice, Clickable Image, or Ranking activities, will show up in your Gradebook with a participation score, instead of a grade.

What can you do with all that data?

  • Spot trends in engagement
  • Identify struggling students
  • Track attendance
  • Reward participation
  • Incite competition
  • Demonstrate improvement and program ROI
