Does the OLI Gradebook show student progress through the modules?

The activities on the pages are low-stakes activities and considered to be homework.

The OLI Gradebook shows student progress when the columns are collapsed.

The collapsed module in the gradebook fills up with blue as students progress through the activities on the pages. 100% participation shows the whole block as blue (this includes the high stakes activities including the quiz). Partially-filled means partially worked through. An entirely white box indicates zero progress through the activities in the module. This is a quick visual.

For more details, click to go to the Learning Dashboard (graph icon) at the top of a collapsed module, then click View Participation in Module by Student on the bottom left (or click the Student tab) to see the exact participation percent by student, drill into it further by clicking the student's name to see what they did and did not click through.

The Learning Dashboard (graph icon) at the top of any module shows what the whole class has answered correctly.

How can instructors view more details on student progress through the modules?
View student progress through the modules by seeing how much of the boxes in their row in the OLI Gradebook fill up with blue - the boxes fill with blue as students progress through the pages.
To see more details, expand a module's column.
Columns for for any My Response activities show green checkmarks if completed.
High stakes activities such as quizzes or labs show scores if completed.
These activities in the columns contribute to the Participation Percentage.
For more details, click the Learning Dashboard icon (graph symbol) at the top of the column, scroll down to By Student and click to open a report that shows the Participation Percentage for each student, clicking this percentage shows you the actual activities the student worked in. Bold text and a blue circle indicate the activity has not been worked in. 
How can students view more details on their progress through the modules?
The Participation Percentage, as represented by the modules filling up with blue in the OLI Gradebook, tracks participation in My Response activities, Learn By Doing and Did I Get This practice questions, Checkpoints and Labs. The Participation Percent tracks whether these activities are participated-in, not the correctness or grade.
To see what student “My Response” activities still need to be completed:
1. From the My Courses page, click My Scores.
2. Under the desired Module, click the Expand button as needed to see the detail.
3. See any columns that are blank and click the link at the top of that column, click View Assignment.(Examples would be My Response or Additional Questions that are also linked from the quiz page in the module typically.)
Note: Not all courses or modules have self-evaluation activities.
To see what student learning (Did I Get This and Learn by Doing or other) activities still need to be completed on the course pages:
1. From the Syllabus: Scroll down to the desired module and click the Available Practice link then Show Activities for each Learning Objective.
2. Click the page number in the right column of bold (uncompleted) activities to view the activity.

Does the OLI Gradebook show student grades on high stakes activities such as quizzes and labs?

An expanded module/cell shows any high-stakes activities in that module, one column per activity.

Can I see student answers on the low-stakes activities on the pages?

Individual student answers and when they answered the questions on the pages are not available. Typically, activities on the pages are considered low-stakes student practice and, while the general class progress  is useful, the student's individual answers are not especially because they should re-answer until they are right.

Can I override scores on quizzes?

When a student submits an assessment, the resulting document is called an “attempt.” Instructors can manage each of the attempts including overriding the total score or the score for any individual question. The new and original scores along are viewable along with any associated comments and the Account ID of the instructor or TA who overrode the score. The original score may be reset.

Start at the OLI Gradebook.

  1. Scroll down to the student, click the gray triangle next to the student name to expand the details.
    1. Scroll to the right to the desired Module, click the Expand icon under the Module heading at the top that looks like two little gray triangles pointing out to expand the Module.
      The scores of any submitted attempts appear in the lower rows for the student.
    2. Click on the % representing the quiz score on the attempt.
      The quiz results open in a new window. View the answers to any questions.
    3. Click Override to enter a new total points score for the overall quiz attempt score or new points for an individual question.
      Note: Once overridden, revert to the original score by clicking Reset.

What does a 0 and small clock icon mean for a student's quiz  attempt score?

The 0 and small clock icon appear next to an in-progress quiz attempt. If the deadline is past and the Late Submit course assessment setting is set to Allow With Instructor Approval, the student can still submit the quiz and the instructor has the option to accept the assessment into the gradebook. If all the answers are entered, the instructor can click the attempt to view the answers, then click Accept to enter the score into the Gradebook. If the student needs to start the attempt again, the instructor can Delete (permanently) the attempt so the student can start again (if the deadline is not past).

My student missed a deadline, how do I extend the deadline for them?

If a student misses a deadline, grant them an extension through the Schedule Activity window, accessed from the particular activity.

1. Go to the Syllabus and click on the activity that you want to schedule.
2. Choose the “Update” link in the “Schedule” section.
3. Choose the “Individual student exceptions…” action. The system will prompt for the Account ID of the student.
NOTE: The most common exception is to extend the deadlin so the student has more time. 

    Change schedule type
        This allows you to release and close the activity for this individual as needed.
    Change scheduled dates
        This date range will automatically open and expire on a certain date and time.

Once granted, a link to this exception appears at the bottom of the “Schedule Activity” window. Access to this exception also appears on your “Schedule Course” page. Click either of these links to modify the exception.
