Assignments - send same work back-and-forth

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have 2 questions that our Business Studies teacher asked me, I have had a look but not sure if possible, thanks.

1. Is it possible in assignments that when a student sends back their completed worksheet/project  (probably using file drop in assignments) to the teacher, that the teacher can then mark the same worksheet/project  with comments and send it back to the student to amend? And then the student  can send the same amended copy back to the teacher etc? So its all kept in one thread?

2. Also the business studies teacher here marks work using pass, merit or distinction – Is it possible to set this as a marking system in assignments?

2. As an admin you can set up Mark Schemes via the Mark Schemes Manager....

As for point 1.  I would just reissue the assignment and call it v2!!  That way you have a record of the 1st hand in and the second!!  is this for BTEC Business by any chance???  I teach BTEC ICT and that's how we do versions!! ;)

@S Marcham I definitely think there is a need for teachers to be able to send marked documents back to students - it's not currently possible.

Creating a new assignment really isn't a solution to this it would take staff forever to do this on an individual basis and by separting the assignments it becomes much harder to track (for staff, students and parents).

Completely agree with you... In Frog 3 you could download some work...  mark it..... and send the file back with annotations on!!! 

You can for an additional fee get Frog Feedback which lets you scribble all over a kids work....  add comments...  or record audio "You idiot"...  which I think is really good.............  ive trailed it and ive found a few bugs...  and that's as far as we've got!!

See I just reissue a task to all the kids in a class... even if they don't need to resubmit work!!  No major hassle for me I just have Task 1 v1 and Task 1 v2 on my assignment closed list!!

Maybe Quincys Eportfolio idea could be a solution....  coming to a Frog box near you soon!! ;)

@ADT @clangstaff Thank you for the replies, that's great, I will change the mark schemes :)

Our Business teacher is teaching NCFE and has 120 students, so although to reissue an assignment is an option (thank you, I have told her) I'm not sure how easy that will be. We do have office 365, so I'm thinking about investigating this as a possible solution.

Many thanks for the advice

Hey all,

 

We here in Talbot have Frog Feedback.  This is how I send work back and forth.  Students are alerted to comments on their work through having a highlighter/pen icon turn a magenta color and that lets them know they have comments.  I think there should be an option to send back work to amend.  I wonder how difficult this would be.  I think it would be as simple as a script that sends a reopen to each of the assignments and a notification to students.  @Graham Quince is this correct?

 

Cheers

Matt

That's absolutely right.  This article on the community demonstrates it in action:

@S Marcham - I'll drop you a line to discuss Feedback and the costs involved.

I would really suggest using it if you can.  I love it and it has so many uses.

Have you not found some issue with files not converting.....  or files that haven't converted correctly!!  Dont get me wrong i like it its just not 100% for me!!

Having major problems with it not converting in testing, haven't told the staff about it yet for that reason

Some have, but it hasn't been anything i have been worried about.  I have used work arounds and with 120 students it is a concern, but I am not going to stop using something that helps my students.

It looks like the conversion issue was supposed to be solved with Da Vinci.  I graded 200 assignments last night with multiple different formats.  Each format converted properly.  I will continue to look.

@emoseley  This may allow us to start to really role out feedback to the teachers.  

Im not convinced...  file names...  page numbers... etc can cock it up.....!!!

Look at these...  one in PowerPoint... one in Feedback!!!  I know this is down to formatting the images... but surely all that's happening is the PowerPoint is being PDFed/Converted into pictures so they shouldn't be different??

Sorry everyone.

The issue has been reported by several schools and we're working closely with one school to resolve the issue.  Once we have it fixed (we're close) we'll then be able to roll out the solution for everyone.  This may come across like we're not doing anything, but behind the scenes we've been working on it.

I am a big proponent of feedback and we have decided to do a test.  One of the items that we decided to test was a WACOM pad with the computer and using feedback.  I have been thinking that this may be a way that we can limit paper usage.  Now we have run into a couple things that makes feedback not as good, but still pretty awesome.  

1. A bug is involved where a longer document cannot be written on beyond a certain point. 

2.  A tablet makes using the paint functions easier  I would love either a pen function (thinner line) or the ability to control line thickness.  I sometimes write on the sentences, and it is unclear because of thickness.

3.  Next to mark on the screen put a fraction of how many widgets were completed 

4.  Highlighter needs to be more clear on what we highlight.  It is a bit unwieldy.

5.  The ability to hover over the sticker and see what the sticker means.

      Hi,
      One of my annoyances with work setting on FrogLearn (and I do a lot of that) is that an assignment is either open or closed.  If it is open, students don't see their marks. If it is closed, students can't submit. If a student, having seen her marks, asks to be allowed to resubmit, the task has to be reopened for all. A late submitter can't submit unless the task is reopened for all. (These limitations didn't exist in Frog3).
      I'm wondering if the 'convert to individuals' option might overcome all these problems, i.e. allow me to close and release marks to all,, then reopen an assignment for an individual who is late, plus reassign work to any keen re-doers (or those I'm not happy with) individually.
      Yet it is important that the results remain in the class markbook..
      Is that what the button does?  Would hitting this button have any other implications?
      I could experiment with my classes but is has been hard enough getting them used to FrogLearn, without unnecessarily rocking the boat....
      Any comments?
       
      Cheers,  Mark
      PS.   LOVING most of FrogLearn!

      Has anyone else encountered this problem on a similarly sized device?   We use the 11-inch MacBook Air and iPad.  When we make a quick assignment (specifically using Google Assignment)  the "Hand In" button is below the bottom of the screen with no ability to scroll down.   Since students are not Handing in the work the teacher has to access student work using the cumbersome back door through Google. This also affects iPads.   For quizzes. assigned directly from FrogDrive or through quick assignments we have the same problem, especially on iPads.  I was wondering why my numbers were so low at elementary since we were pushing the Championships.  Turnes out teachers had no interest since reports did not show because students literally could not hand in the quiz.

      Staff to be able to 'Download wall' from assignments
      Currently only Administrators can click 'download wall' and download all communication that has taken place on an assignment. We would like for staff to have the ability to do this too so they can easily download evidence of feedback between staff and student on assignments.

      I've created the following on the ideas portal - please get voting on this so Frog might finally consider it!
       
      Confirmation of a student viewing an assignment
      As with social media messaging services it would be useful for staff to know if/when a student has viewed a homework on Frog. This could be shown with a little eye icon next to each students name in the assignment manager.
      This functionality is available within several competitors to Frog and would make life much easier for staff as they could quickly identify which students simply haven't checked their homework assignment.

      We have a new process for monitoring regularity and quality of home learning (all of which are now done via assignment manager).
      Happy to share this frog code app which allows Tutors, Heads of House/Year, SLT to lookup what has been assigned to a student and act accordingly.   I will ensure this app continues to work if frog change api's in the future as it is part of our internal systems.  
      I realise this functionality is available in the assignment monitor app, but we do not wish to share this app with staff as it would allow them to lookup staff as well as students!
      A quick screen shot...
