Level of confidence

Julie Brown -

How would you make a MC quiz with the Level of Confidence the student may use being 0-4?

    You could set it as a rubric. Select the question on the answer key, then select rubric in the "Type" drop down.

    Rich,

    Thanks for the response.  Would that rubric 0-4 apply to A-D, or E, equally?  Let's say a student answers B and the LoC point assignment is (ABCD) 0310.  Would the program distinguish the 3 points, or say, 2 points?  I used Gradecam for years at Falcon High School in CO by the way.

    I'm not quite sure I understand. In the image I attached above, I set number 1 & 5 to rubrics.  It allows a value of 1-5 to be bubbled.  (We are currently working on a feature which would allow 0-4, or 1-3, etc etc.  That will be out soon.)  Could this satisfy your needs?

    Rich,

    It's getting closer.  Each possible answer A-D or A-E, needs to be worth 0-4 points.  Students need to "divvy" up the points as they see fit, based on their LoC for that possible answer, for partial or total points.  I've attached an example of the paper copy I use.  So when a student looks at choices for say #1.  If their confidence is high that B is the correct answer, they may put all 4 points on that.  Point distribution would look like this, 0400.  At the other extreme, if a student has no idea what the answer is, they might distribute their points as 1111, assuring they receive at least 1 point.

    You'll be able to do that with a feature we're working on called "Custom Rubrics".  It looks like this will be out by the beginning of next school year.  It's in our top ten list of features to be developed.

    Attached is the point assignment for answers #1, 3, 5.  I skipped #2 and 4 to make an easier visual distinction.

    That will be nice to use the feature in Custom Rubrics.  Where is GC with being able to scan from my iPhone, cache the data, then either upload to the web or my LMS grade book?  Last fall I used the scan feature on my iPhone, but was unable to collect and/or transfer the data.

    Our immediate development priorities are offering Custom Standards, Custom Rubrics, rebuilding a more robust form printing system and the big one for us is getting roster syncing up and running.  Before the fall GradeCam, districts will be able to sync rosters between GradeCam and their SIS.  iPhone is right up there with these as far as how important we consider it.  Those are frontward facing things that I can say off the top of my head.  On the back end, our development team is advancing the redundancies which will continue to keep GradeCam service uninterrupted, even as we add millions of new users.  So I can't give you a date on iPhone availability with much confidence.  It's very important, but it's in line with some other huge improvements.

    I wish there was a way we could offer the iPhone app on a limited basis.  I'm sure user's like yourself woud appreciate the limited version we built.  Unfortunately the limitations made some people unhappy with it.  And through the app store it's either public or it's not available.  So despite the fact that I have the limited version stored on a disk, we can't offer it for the those that know the limitations and want it.  Ipad is up and running though. 

    Cheers,

    Rich
