i>grader's editing functions available from the i>grader Home Page include:
This feature allows you to modify which remote IDs are associated with a particular student ID.
The i>grader Session Summary window allows you to edit the session name, delete a session, and assign performance and participation points.
The i>grader Session Summary window allows you to delete and modify question data and award Participation/Attendance Points and Performance Points for this lecture. Participation/Attendance Points are used to credit students for attending class and for participating in the voting activities. Students only need to place a vote for at least the minimum number of questions to receive participation points. They do not have to answer the questions correctly. These points are awarded by session, not by question--the student either answers the minimum number of questions and receives all participation points, or does not and receives zero participation points.
NOTE: Students can receive participation points for Anonymous Polling questions. Anonymous Polling questions do not, however, have a correct answer and are therefore cannot be used for Performance Points.
In the My Settings area of the i>clicker program you can set a participation requirement by percentage of questions answered. The minimum number of responses will be automatically calculated for you. From the Session Summary > Session Settings tab, you can modify the minimum number of questions your students must answer in order to receive participation points. You also determine the total number of participation points possible for that session. The minimum number of questions required will be adjusted each time you delete and restore questions from your session.
Session Settings tab in the Session Summary window
TIP: We encourage you to utilize the participation/attendance feature which is designed to promote student engagement and teacher-student interaction.
Performance Points are awarded to students by question for specific answers. Many professors use performance points to reward "correct" answers. Performance points (if any) are assigned to each question individually. If you have already set a point value for correct answers in i>clicker My Settings, you may simply select the checkbox next to the correct answer and that answer choice will automatically be awarded the correct number of points. You may also assign credit or partial credit for multiple answers by manually adding point values in the Points fields next to the answer choices.
Question Information tab in the Session Summary window
Because you may not remember the details of each question you asked in lecture, i>clicker takes a screen capture for you every time you start polling for a question. To view this image in i>grader, click View Screenshot. The screenshot opens in a new window. The screen shot function allows you to ask on-the-fly questions easily by providing you with an automatic record of your lecture questions.
To scroll through the questions, click the Previous or Next buttons . Once you have assigned points values for each question, click the Set and Close button in the bottom right corner. All point allocations will be saved and you will return to the i>grader Home Page, where you will see your overall session scores
You are able to change the grading assignments/point values for any session at any time.
