Information Technology Services (ITS) has discovered that timed ANGEL quizzes that are set to auto-submit when the time has expired do not function properly. Thus, students can continue working past the allotted time. When a timed quiz is set up to be auto-submitted at the expiration of the allotted time, students are first warned that their time is up and that their quiz will be submitted. Students must click "OK" in this warning window in order for a submission to be made from their account. However, even if the quiz settings do not specify that the database should check for incomplete answers, a second pop-up window appears asking students whether they have completed all items. If the students click "Cancel" in this pop-up window, they can continue working beyond the allotted time.
This post continues on the discussion of the Course and Resources tabs. To read the entire conversation check out the two prior posts: ANGEL v7: The Course Tab and The Course Tab and Resource Tab in v7.
A brief description of the Course tab was provided in a previous post . This posting will provide some further information on the Course tab and how it works in conjunction with the Resource tab. Click on the post title to read more.
Note from the ANGEL Team regarding a planned outage over spring break
ANGEL to be unavailable during upgrade March 12-13
From 5:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Monday, March 12 until 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time on March 13, ANGEL will be unavailable (26 hours) to users. During that time period, Information Technology Services (ITS) will optimize file storage for ANGEL. While ITS regrets causing any inconvenience, this action will enable us to archive ANGEL groups and courses more efficiently as well as greatly enhance the management of ANGEL data files.
The Course tab, new with ANGEL 7.1, is the first page instructors and students see when entering a course. Functioning as the “home page” for the course, the purpose of the Course tab is to display critical information regarding course activity.
The Course tab is comprised of course information that is displayed using graphic summaries and navigational links that can be selected to reveal more detailed information. Some of the features include:
•The course Guide: an expandable navigation feature that updates immediately upon log in.
•Activity at a Glance: student activity is displayed using graphic summaries that can be selected to reveal more information
•Grades: presents a visual representation of student performance
Note: This is an excellent document developed by Ergin that includes examples of some of the most asked formula questions. It is also still in development. Please feel free to add your examples to this document by posting a comment. Thanks, J
We have prepared a document summarizing how to use the formula tokens in the formula editor of the gradebook with a few examples. This is currently a draft and you are welcome to contribute. Let us know if you have any questions/comments or any other examples you would like us to include.
Drop boxes are folders where students can place assignments. These assignments can be graded and associated with Gradebook. But did you know you can also do things like using the message field to collect student submissions or download all student submission into a zip file? To read more about what can be done with drop boxes check out the Using the Student Drop Box section of the Creating Quizzes, Surveys, and Drop Boxes manual.
