New Student Gradebook goes live Monday 23rd December 2019

Over the last 12 months, your students have been very busy. Over 3.3m questions answered.

As a result of this activity, your students will now reap the rewards of all this work with a QLA empowered gradebook. 

The new gradebook is planned for release on Monday 23rd December 2019.

When students next login after this release they will have access to a new gradebook. This provides:

  1. Activity time and assessment count/outcome data - see "Activity Summary".
  2. Access to their personal line held in teacher grade books - See "Course Summary"
  3. Question level analysis with access to feedback/explanations for every question attempted by clicking on question cells - see "Learning Gaps"
  4. The gradebook includes filters to help students improve focus on specific parts of the course.
  5. Report download options.

Some additional benefits:

  1. Immediate review of assessments after attempts.
  2. Rapid navigation between questions and feedback to accelerate and personalise revision.
  3. Works on tablets and handheld devices.

Although this has been thoroughly tested please do let us know if you run into any issues over the Xmas holidays at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Finally, we would like to thank all our schools and their students for their support this year. Our business relies on your support and we hope to continue to meet the needs of schools in 2020 with high quality, time-saving and data-driven learning system that takes the heat off teachers and helps them to help their students achieve more.

Happy Xmas and best wishes for 2020

EzyEducation Team.

Christmas comes early at EzyEducation

Today some changes to the Assignment Hub were released. These apply to student users:

  • Current Assignments (previously assignments set)- any assignment that has not been completed will be accessed under this heading. There will be an option to start or resume
  • Other Assignments  - all completed assignments will appear under this heading. There will be an option to retake assessments (24-hour rule applies) or replay previous video assignments.
  • Colour coding relating to due/overdue has been removed.

 A more significant change will be a new student gradebook. This is scheduled for release on 21/12/19 and will provide a single Html page with details of

  • Total time on the system and total assessments and average outcome with subject splits.
  • Access to data on video and assessment records with options to filter to narrow the focus on specific parts of the course and generate pdf reports accordingly
  • Access to learning maps for EVERY assessment completed providing individual question outcomes and immediate access to question feedback. This is a big step forward and could transform exam preparations, but only for those students who work hard and complete assessments. This opportunity will depend entirely on the number of assessments completed.

 This will enter the final test phase soon thanks to the help of some of our student users. Watch out for updates.

Assignment Hub Improvements

We have introduced a number of improvements to the Assignment Hub.

Please see below for details and instructions:

  1. Assignments can be set for single classes, multiple classes or for individual or small groups of students.
  2. Click on "class" and select however many classes you wish to select for, select a due date, close, set.
  3. Click on "student" and select the student or students you wish to select work for and complete as above. The "student" filed will show all students. If you wish to reduce this number simply select class first before then selecting from the students in view.
  4. The assignment pages now show which teacher set the work and have a sort option available to rearrange the order of assignments by the due date.
  5. Any teacher can now set work for any class.
  6. The grade book report can now be accessed directly from the Learning Zone home page i.e. report icon visible. This applies to work set for single students and means there would be a filtered grade book for one student or for all the students the work was set for.
  7. Students will now have access to a retake button in the completed assignments section.
  8. Assignments are now attached to students (previously classes) so that assignments from all previous classes remain visible when students change class.
  9. School reps will now appear in the teacher tab. If you select and the edit you will see that they can now be specifically added to classes.
  10. The hub now shows who set work. However, this has not been tracked historically and will not show on legacy assignments. You will see -//- in the column.
  11. There is a sort arrow above the due dates so that assignments can be re-ordered by the due date.
  12. Overdue assignments are now highlighted in student pages with indigo (previously red).

Something to engage and inspire your economists

b2ap3_thumbnail_Slide1.png

 

This article and videos are great material for young economists. Loved watching the video and reading the article on Sky News this morning.

Historical context, some good explanations, several connections to the real economy and some interesting thoughts on what happens to US interest rates, what the consequences might be and why current policy tools might not dig us out of another financial crisis.

For more detail on the technicalities of banks and coverage of the 2008 crisis please feel free to use and share:

Financial crisis recap video

Banks and financial institutions recap video

2017 CPD presentation - free slide pack

Don't forget:

  1. You won't learn much via passive video viewing i.e. just watching a video
  2. Take your time, make notes and turn your time into an active viewing event.
  3. When you think you understand it then test yourself via our assessments
  4. Read the feedback when you get questions wrong as "feedback is the food of champions"

Ignorance is bliss - the psychology of textbook bias

Ignorance is bliss - the psychology of textbook bias

First of all, I would like to make it clear that I think some textbooks are an incredibly useful guide for teachers. If they are exam board accredited, they will provide far more detail than the board specification and can be used to guide teachers through a course.

However, is the level of textbook content appropriate for pupils?

We believe in "Learning by doing"

What is EzyScience?

Perhaps it would be more helpful to dispell any possible misconceptions and start by explaining what it is not:

  • Not a content platform
  • Not a video package
  • Not a simple AO1 testing tool
