Schoology New Assessments

Follow

We LOVE a lot of the new features with Schoology Assessments; however, there are a few key things missing and I hope they are coming soon.

1. In test/quiz, teachers could select a question and grade all those responses at a time. So if they have just a few non-auto graded questions, they could quickly get those graded. Currently, it seems the only way to grade these is to view every student submission and scroll through their test. Plus, if you randomize the questions, you see them in the order the student did (so you can't "learn" how far to scroll through to get to the ones you need.

2. In test/quiz, you could give question-specific feedback as you were grading it. That option is not available.

I have a large group of teachers that are ready to make the switch, but these are really holding some of them back.

    Hi David,

    Very happy to hear your excitement regarding Assessments! I'm going to create a ticket for your recommendations/requests for Assessment features so that we can track them in our system.

    Please stay tuned to our Product Roadmap for new features coming to Schoology.

    Thanks again for sharing!

    Was this addressed in the new Features released this past week?  Ability to comment or provide feedback was a strength of Tests/Quizzes.   Hope this will be in Assessments also.

    There is no notification for "Needs Grading" on my homepage for the new assessments. I had to switch back to test/quiz because I was forgetting to grade assessments (particularly problematic where I had a student absent and they took it after I graded the rest of the class's assessments).

    Still looking for the ability to provide feedback to short answer/essay questions in assessments. I have been encouraging teachers to use assessments vs. test/quiz but new is not better for many of them.
