|What specific reports are available? What can it report?||Carone Courses participate in all the usual Courses Reports. Quizzes and other assessments all participate in the Test Progress Report.|
|What are best practices for grading and weighting in Grade Tracker and Grade Report?||Carone courses contain activities that report completion status only and cannot be mastered or exempted. When using grading templates, use the Learning Modules category, not the Mastery Test category to weigh the activities. The content also contains digital drop box activities, threaded discussions, and quizzes which can be used for weighting categories as well. Use the quizzes category for midterm and final exams instead of unit posttests and end of semester test categories.|
|Does Grade Tracker support all types of activities in these courses?||Grade Tracker supports all scoreable activities and will be reflected as such once the Courses are released and the official GT Templates are created for the platform.|
|Pacing - How do students keep track of progress vs completion of a lesson? It marks them complete upon launch. This appears to be different functionality from Plato courses.||Completion for a lesson occurs on launch. Scores are collected for quizzes, drop box, and discussions. For pacing, any activity that is completed and/or mastered if it reports mastery (quizzes), then it is included in the activities completed in the Graphic Learner Progress for pacing.|
