1. More data regarding student portal submissions: How long they took on an assessment, when they started, when they submitted.
Would be nice to have more data about the students' progress data per question and for the whole submission. Could be a useful tool to see if a student submitted a 30 question test in 1 minute I could immediately flag them as a potential cheater.
2. More options for how M/C assignments are administered: For example, it would be nice if we could build multiple-choice questions within-grade cam directly.
Instead of it just being a pseudo virtual scantron with attached PDF's, have the actual question and answer choices visible within the student portal directly. Gradecam is amazing at bridging the gap of a hybrid class, but why stop halfway with the implementation of the student portal assigments?
For a multiple-choice question if we could attach individual documents(like an image or stimulus) as well as have a question header(like that already in fill in the blank questions) and built-in multiple choice selection. That way when we assign a multiple choice quiz to the student portal, everything is self-contained and built directly into gradecam. (The .pdf attachments would be freed to add even more versatility)
Currently, the only option for multiple versions of an M/C test is to build an exam outside Gradecam have the testgen software scramble it, print to .pdf the different versions, and upload each version and assign it to the appropriate key. Then assign the versions randomly to students.
Why not have the whole process within GradeCam directly?
3. Obscure the .pdf title in the student portal: Make it so that the file name of the PDF is not visible to students. Currently, students can see the file name they are given. If you name your test .pdf according to their version, the students know which version they have and if they are virtual can discreetly collaborate with students of the same version. The workaround is to name all the version .pdf that same name, but it can make it confusing while matching them to the appropriate key.
4. Give an option to allow students to view all of the questions together, 5 at a time, or 1 at a time. (While also collecting data on the time spent on each question)
