Assignment Hub and Gradebook Enhancements

A number of changes will be introduced to enhance the assignment hub:

TEACHER CHANGES

Teachers can now view a student's assignment hub via a link from the gradebook. This will provide a better overall perspective of student engagement with set work. Teachers using the link will land on "Current Assignments" which details all incomplete and partially complete assignments. Assignments will remain in this section of the assignment hub until they have been completed.

New spectacles for the online and socially distanced teacher!

When socially distanced classes start how will you look over a student’s shoulder if you are not able to walk freely around the classroom and need to maintain a 2m gap? How will you see what progress has been made?

The answer to this question is that you won’t, and you may not be able to do so for some time. This means that teachers will be faced with much the same problem as the lack of intel in online lessons.

This is where good tech can help to improve class awareness. It is almost like providing teachers with anew and more powerful pair of spectacles.

Currently an online lesson might look like this:

A new era for teaching delivery

4 weeks to get remote ready for the Summer term. 

Managing learning remotely is a different ball game which might swamp teachers unless their schools provide them with the right teaching tools to deliver.

The main issue is that remote teaching delivery is about more than just setting work which should be a tiny part of what teachers do in this new era:

  • Students need a lot of support to work independently – content needs to support engaging assessment techniques using scaffolded and visualised questions backed by worked answers following question attempts.
  • Most work needs to be marked immediately – posting too much paper-based work for students to complete on a school LMS will make it impossible to occupy students effectively as marking will slow activity to a snail pace.
  • Activity needs to be tracked so teachers can intervene – operating without automated and detailed tracking data will be ineffective
  • Teachers need to review work – not just right or wrong and % outcome, but they need to see the answers to identify mistakes and intervene
  • Parents and/or carers need to support the process – unless personalised activity and outcomes can be easily reported to parents this will become an impossibility
  • Teaching models need to change from content delivery and class management to learning direction - without access to activities providing end to end syllabus coverage backed by detailed and visual data records this will be challenging.

Without this type of approach attempts to teach remotely will under deliver as students will soon become bored and make use of the many opportunities to hide.

Thankfully there is time right now and over Easter to get ready and deliver a new teaching model that inspires parents and students.

Important Update - GDPR, Snapshots, Student Gradebook changes, Revision Plan and Budgeting Details

A lot of additional functionality has been introduced over the last few months (hopefully you have noticed some helpful improvements). Before covering these, I need to start with some details regarding necessary GDPR actions.

GDPR

During March 2020 we will delete personal data held in our archive. As this should contain students and teachers that are no longer subscribed this should not present any issues for schools.

Please make contact to advise any reason why we should not delete your School’s archive.

Snapshot Booklets - School Discounts

We have upgraded the tech support for these. This delivers a vastly improved student experience.

  1. Students with course access can enjoy the support of the Booklet and call up video support via their phone but can also directly link into courses via the screen options on their phone. Students can buy direct for £9.99 a book or enjoy a heavy discount if a bulk school order is made (30 books min). £4.99 a book or £6.99 a book for Combined Science and £9.99 for a set of 3 Single Science books.
  2. Please note that the new technology does not support legacy booklets. These can be identified as they do not have any Zap instructions on the front page. New booklets will be required.
  3. Overall our expectation is that these books will have significant impacts on independent learning by integrating digital and print via mobile devices.
  4. Although we did not have time to produce booklets for Edexcel GCSE or Edexcel iGCSE. We will produce these for the next school year.

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).

Do you want to introduce more flipped learning within your department?

Flipped-Classroom

The model of flipped learning, or flipped classrooms, seems to fall in and out of vogue. The idea seems very sound: ask students to learn about a new topic independently, before they encounter it in-class. With students arriving to class with a basic understanding of the concept, valuable teaching time can be spent on high value-added activities, like personalised misconception handling, interactive application activities and developing exam-technique.

Most teachers we meet say that they would like to introduce more flipped teaching within their scheme of work, however, they have struggled to implement it effectively in the past, or don’t really know where to start with it.
