As students complete activities, they receive a Star Score based on correct or incorrect responses, response time, and even confidence level. Here is how it all works!
Where Do I See Star Scores?
Multiple Choice activity parts have a specific algorithm.
- In Class Activity, a Score (%) graph will provide data on best attempt of stars earned.
- Students start activities with a Star Score to target based on their assigned activities.
- Throughout the session, they will see the Stars Earned and Target Score. Sounds like bubbles and their dancing avatar make working towards their target score fun!
- This is the Star Score Meter, showing progress as it happens.
How Does That Work Exactly?
If you choose the correct answer on your first try, you are awarded stars according to the confidence you expressed:
- "I'm totally sure": +5 stars
- "I think I'm right": +4 stars
- "I'm totally guessing": +3 stars
If you're incorrect on your first try, you will initially:
- Lose 2 stars if you chose "I'm Totally sure"
- Lose 1 star if you chose "I think I'm right"
- You do not lose any stars if you chose "I'm totally guessing"
If the question has 3 or more choices and you choose the correct answer on the second try, you earn 2 stars "back".
If the question has 3 or more choices and you choose the correct answer on the third try or later, or if the question has only 2 choices and you choose the correct answer on the second try, you earn 1 star "back".
So overall, the most you can earn is 5 stars, and the most you can lose is 1 star.
