How to unlock/reset gradable assignments in a Global Language course

Explanation

Global Language courses consist of both ungraded and gradeable assignments that have unlimited attempts. Gradable assignments need to be graded manually by an educator. Learner(s) grade will reflect lower until these assignments are graded. If you do not have a proficient educator to grade these assignments, there is an option where gradable assignments can automatically be graded by the system. See the link below for more information:

All gradable assignments in Global Language courses lock after a Learner completes them, similar to mastery tests in PLATO Learning Environment® (PLE). Educators can reset gradable assignments so Learners can retake them. They can also allow Learners to retake one or multiple questions in an assignment without having to retake the entire assignment. There is no limit to how many times questions or assignments can be reset. If a Learner retakes an assignment, it keeps the last score, not the highest score as in PLE. It is recommended you allow the Learner to retake the assignment first and then delete the lower score. 

Educators can also set assignments to automatically lock after a specified time frame, even if Learners haven't completed them yet. See the link below for more information on setting up automatic locking of Global Language assignments:

Learners do not have access to automatically unlock the locked assignment and must contact an educator for assistance. Educators can unlock completed assignments as many times as necessary. 

How To

Retaking an assignment

There are two options for a Learner to retake an assignment:

  • Delete Score: removes the last score for the assignment to give the Learner a second attempt.
  • Unlock: the last score will be kept and will unlock the assignment to give the Learner a second attempt.

The trash bin next to the lockpad means the Learner has already taken the assignment and received a score. The system keeps the last score, not the best score. If the Learner receives a lower score than the first attempt, the previous score cannot be restored if it was deleted by a reset so recommended best practice would be to unlock the assignment and delete the lower score once the Learner has retaken it.

  1. Click the Home icon.
  2. Click the Gradebook icon next to the Classroom name.
  3. Click the Learner's Current Grade.
  4. To unlock the assignment: Click the lockpad. The lockpad will open and turn green indicating it is unlocked.

To delete the last score for the assignment: Click the trash icon next the assignment.

Reset one or multiple questions in an assignment

  1. Click the Home icon.
  2. Click the Gradebook icon next to the Classroom name.
  3. Click the score of the assignment.
  4. Put a checkmark next to the question(s) to retake. Type or record audio feedback to the Learner if necessary.
  5. Click Save. The Learner can now retake the questions.
