When I paint my masterpiece :)

So!   I found that you can call something a practice quiz and it won’t be graded or added to the syllabus.   (I’m not sure how I feel about the syllabus getting most things added to it automatically.  I know some peeps want the syllabus to just be stuff so you could use it w/ different sections and adapt.  We’ll see!)  Then there’s the “survey” which you get points for doing, regardless of your answers.

Per https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-2889  :

  • A graded quiz is the most common quiz, and Canvas automatically creates a column in the Gradebook for any graded quizzes you build.
  • A practice quiz is ungraded and can be used as a learning tool to help students see how well they understand the course material. Practice quizzes do not appear in the syllabus or Gradebook.
  • A graded survey allows you to give students points for completing the survey; however, it is not graded based on right or wrong answers.
  • An ungraded survey allows you to obtain opinions or other information from students; however, students do not receive a grade for their responses. Ungraded surveys do not appear in the syllabus or Gradebook.

So in my ‘learning about this’ thing the next thing is to make a lesson around a ‘quiz’ like the guy does in the video about it.


Okay, let’s wake this up :)

Hello again, world!   I’m a little blog.   I don’t have a catchy name — mecacad.wordpress.com — it’s from Mary Ellen Carter Academy.

Seems a good place to stick the stuff I want to be able to find and share for my attempts at an adult ed math lesson.

http://www.learninglover.com/examples.php?id=84   has a primitve script for practicing the slope formula.   Alas, pretty much everything else on the site is ‘way over my guys’ heads and the ‘arithmetic’ has how to code arithmetic, not how to learn it ( both are nifty, of course) .

https://www.vrae.org/images/customer-files/CCRStandardsAdultEd.pdf  has the ‘college and career ready standards’. Yup!  Percents don’t show up ’til late.   Fascinating.
