Below are recent updates made in between official releases for v11.2. As always, if you have any questions about a feature, please contact your Customer Success Manager or Customer Support.
Data and Assessment
You now have the ability to omit the Answer Choices by selecting No Rubric as an option for Constructed Responses Advanced:
- The "No Rubric" option will show in the Answer Choices dropdown when a CR Adv question type is selected.
- The "No Rubric" option will not populate in the Answer Choices Settings modal
- Selecting No Rubric will populate a Weight box
- This will not show on the scan sheet
- Teachers can go to enter/edit and have the ability to enter any number up until the weight
- "Fluence - NGSS" itembank has now been renamed to "KDS - NGSS"
Previously, we notified the user of the # of sheets that need reviewed from a file upload. Once they review the sheet there is no way to tell which question(s) had the issue, until now! Now the:
- Individual questions that need review are marked based on the setting selection (blanks, more than expected, fewer than expected)
- Flagged and non-flagged questions are editable on the review page with edits being displayed in enter/edit
- Setting sheet as "Mark as Reviewed" on the review page removes the flags from the individual question and decrements the number of sheets that need review on the upload page
- Reports of unscored Centerpoint Constructed Response Items were defaulting to a score of "0" rather than blank. As a result, the "Constructed Responses" tile couldn't properly audit for un-edited grades. This has been corrected and default scoring items to blank instead of 0 if ungraded.
