After assigning an Easel Activity, teachers can:
- Check the status of each student’s assignment.
- Check when an assignment was submitted.
- Click “View” to see a student's current progress while they work on the activity
- Teachers can’t make comments or edits before an activity is turned in, but this view can help identify which students are struggling with an assignment and provide intervention if necessary.
- Tip: Refresh the assignment to see the student’s most up-to-date progress.
- Click “Review” to open a student’s submitted assignment.
- At this point, teachers can use all the commenting options within Easel to leave feedback for the student. Any self-checking answers within the activity will show the student’s final selection.
- Tip: Navigate between students’ assignments by clicking through the students’ names at the top of the Review screen.
- Assign the same activity to a new group of students.
For Easel Activities that contain self-checking elements, teachers will be able to view a comprehensive report showing the number of times each student attempted to answer each question, and whether or not they answered correctly. Student attempts are represented by a color gradient as shown in the image below. With each attempt that a student makes the color gets darker, with red indicating an incorrect response, and a slash indicating that the student has not submitted any answers for the associated slide/page.
Teachers can download the report, making it very easy to track student progress and engagement over long periods of time, or simply for record keeping purposes. The report downloads as a .csv file which can then be printed if a physical copy is needed.
If a teacher has customized the activity to allow their students only one attempt per page, they will see a report showing whether or not each student answered a page correctly.
Easel Assessments are auto-graded so teachers can focus on making instructional choices based on student performance instead of spending time grading. A teacher can view their student’s responses to assessments at a class level (Overview) or by looking at the specific questions (Questions).
As students complete an assessment, teachers can follow along with their progress from the “Results” page. Teachers will see which questions students are answering correctly or incorrectly in real-time. They can also look at an individual student’s answers, or they can look at a class-level view to see where misunderstandings are most common.
