- The grading feature is not optimal, still. I need to be able to mark directly on a student’s assignment (without having to click on the pen for every single line), AND THE STUDENT MUST BE ABLE TO SEE THOSE COMMENTS DIRECTLY ON THE WORK! Comments solely placed in the comment box are not optimal to communicate student errors. If nothing else, please FIX THIS! a. Using a Schoology-Noteability to grade-Schoology work flow “solution” is too time consuming for every assignment, assessment, or classwork. (This is just an example. There are many similar workflow solutions with the same issues.) The downloading takes too long, and there are too many clicks per student. This is not as quick as hard (paper) grading, which we are trying to move away from. b. My solution: provide the ability to hit the “pen” and mark all over a document. When hitting save, flatten those comments onto the document.
- The gradebook feature is hard to navigate. I should be able to enter grades in the gradebook by tapping the down arrow and entering a score, rather than having to click each time. Also, finding an assignment is tedious and time-consuming. Perhaps providing a search box would be helpful? Assignments should show up in reverse chronological order so that it follows what a gradebook would show. Alpha and numeric order is not a teacher/student-centered method. a. IF THERE IS ANY WAY ON THIS EARTH THAT SCHOOLOGY AND INFINITE CAMPUS CAN COMMUNICATE, IT WOULD BE A DREAM COME TRUE! I know that District 87 has Power School, which has high possibilities for communication. Infinite Campus will be with District 211 for a long time. We need some sort of communication between systems. There is too much double work happening.
WORKFLOW IMPROVEMENT PLEASE!!!!!!!
