Lots of BB info and other tips in my OET8000 Course which you are a student in, and that’s real student view!
The Item Analysis tool provides statistics on overall test performance and individual test questions to help you recognize questions that might be poor discriminators of student performance. You can use this information to improve questions for future test administrations or to adjust credit on current attempts. You can run item analyses on deployed tests, but not on surveys. Access previously run item analyses under the Available Analysis heading or select a deployed test from the drop-down list and click Run to generate a new report.
Here’s the solution!
- Launch System Preferences, either from the dock or from the Apple menu.
- Once the System Preferences window opens, select the General preference pane.
- The middle section of the General preference pane controls when scroll bars appear and a few additional scroll bar options.
- To return the scroll bars to their pre-Lion functionality, select “Always” from the Show Scroll Bars options. The scroll bars will now always be visible, even when you’re not scrolling.
Show Test Results and Feedback to Students from BB Help
After they complete a test, test results and feedback are available to students. By setting up rules, you can set the release of progressive feedback to keep test results secure and prevent cheating.
For example, you can choose After Submission to present Score, All Answers, Correct, Submitted, Feedback, and Show Incorrect Answers to show students their scores along with all answer options. Student also see their submitted answers marked as correct or incorrect and any feedback you provided. Keep all blank and students will not see anything however while in Respondus if “After Submission” and “Score” are selected the student will see all the questions and their answers.
|When||Sets the time when test results and feedback are shown to students:
|Score||Shows the final score out of points possible to students.|
|All Answers||Shows all answer options for certain question types, such as multiple choice.|
|Correct||Shows the correct answers.|
|Submitted||Shows all the student’s submitted answers.|
|Feedback||Shows instructor generated feedback messages for each question.|
|Show Incorrect Questions||Shows the questions the student answered incorrectly or partially incorrectly.|
Grades are coming in, papers are being submitted and your grade center might need some organization. Here is a a link to Grade Center Customization. One tip to remember you can download your Grade Center to an Excel spreadsheet prior to making changes. Just save to your pirate drive in keeping with being a good steward of student information! Need help with your grade center? Contact OET for an appointment!
With the end of Spring Semester instructors often like to download grades from Blackboard, (go to Grade Center, select Work Offline, select download and follow the prompts to get an Excel workbook of grades for the semester) please remember that those files should be stored on your pirate drive or department pirate drive not your computer’s hard drive.
And a repeat of BB Support’s email yesterday –
Before we discuss the upcoming Bb updates:
… If you teach this summer, please look at this checklist for reminders of things to do: http://blog.ecu.edu/sites/blackboard/blog/2014/05/02/summer-2014-blackboard-checklist/
… To make spring course unavailable, please look at this screenshot: http://winmedia.ecu.edu/platforms/bb9/graphics/course_availability.jpg
When do the updates take place?
Blackboard will go down on the morning of May 12. While Blackboard is down next week, you will be redirected to a blog post with some brief information. When Blackboard is back up, your courses and all content will be in place for you. Blackboard is on the schedule to be down for the weekdays starting May 12th through May 16th; however, we will likely power back up before Friday if everything goes as expected. The May 12th – May 16th downtime is needed for system-integrity testing purposes. Summer semester 1 and 11-week semesters begin on May 19th.
