Creating and Managing Assignments

3.1 The Assignment Editor

The Assignment Editor allows you to create new assignments, edit the content, properties, or appearance of existing assignments. Assignment creation options enable you to create assignments in which Maple T.A. reorders questions, generates questions, or displays a subset of questions. Each student viewing your assignment can potentially complete a unique set of questions.

Assignments are created by selecting questions from the Content Repository. The Content Repository provides a place for you to find, create, or modify assignments. You can also search for assignments that you can clone into your class. For a general introduction to assignment options in the Content Repository, see Details on Managing Assignments in the Content Repository.

Once the assignment has been created, the Class Homepage displays the student view of assignments, as shown below.

If you began your class registration by selecting a template or a shared class (not an empty class), it may already be populated with a series of assignments based on testing materials, or other shared questions. If not, you will see a blank list here initially.

To create a new assignment using the Assignment Editor:

  1. From the Class Homepage, click Content Repository. (For more details on the Content Repository, see Content RepositoryOrientation).
  1. From the Create New menu, select Assignment.
  1. The Assignment Editor screen opens, as shown in the image below (Figure 3.1).

The Assignment Editor organizes assignment creation into a three step process:

Step 1: Choose a Name

  • Naming your assignment

Step 2: Select Questions

  • Create, view, import, and add questions to your assignment
  • Delete questions from your assignment
  • Set question weighting
  • Group questions
  • Scramble question sequence upon delivery
  • Establish rules and policies for your class

Step 3: Set Policies

  • Select the type of assignment and set assignment options
  • Control feedback upon grading
  • Set assignment properties
  • Control assignment scheduling
  • Create rules between assignments

Important: The Assignment Editor does not save partially completed assignments until you click Save. If you begin to create an assignment and then abandon, your additions and changes will be lost.

The Assignment Editor is explained thoroughly in the next section, Tutorial: Using the Assignment Editor.

In the Set Policies tab of the Assignment Editor screen, you can:

  • Select the type of assignment.
  • Decide when to make the assignment available to your class.
  • Set feedback options for the assignment.
  • Establish other grading policies.
Type of Assignment

You can create graded assessments (homework, quizzes, or exams), ungraded practice tests or quizzes, or tutorial assignments with set criteria. For details, see:

To take any assignment, students must be registered in the class. For a summary of assignment attributes, see Table 3.1.

Anonymous Practice Assignments

Anonymous Practice assignments are similar to Homework or Quiz assignments.

Graded assignment reports are produced upon conclusion of the assignment, however, results are not recorded in the Gradebook. Students can view their results at the end of the session. Results can be printed, but are only available for as long as a student displays them. Any number of questions can be included, and the assignment is delivered in an instructor-specified sequence (or scrambled).

To enable anonymous practice assignments:

  1. From the Assignment Editor, go to the Set Policies tab.
  1. From the Type of Assignment pane, select the Anonymous Practice check box.
Homework or Quiz Assignments
Description
  • Students are presented with an assignment consisting of any number of instructor-selected questions, which does not require proctor authorization.
  • Questions are delivered either in an instructor-specified or scrambled sequence.
  • Student responses during sessions are recorded (but not graded) after every question, so assignment sessions can be interrupted and returned to upon next login.
  • By default, homework or quiz assignments can be attempted multiple times for credit. If you want to limit the number of attempts a student can make on a particular assignment, configure the assignment properties.
  • Results for every attempt at a Homework and Quiz assignment are recorded in the Gradebook for the class.
Reuse Previously Generated Algorithmic Variables

To present an exact version of an assignment each attempt:

Select the Keep Variation check box.

  • Individual students will always return to the exact version of the assignment they were initially presented with, even on repeated attempts, regardless of whether the question was authored with algorithms for any attempt during the assignment's scheduled availability. If questions contain randomly generated variable data, the system instantiates the variables exactly one time.

To vary questions for each assignment attempt (default setting):

Leave the Keep Variation check box cleared.

  • Students rework the assignment with newly randomized variables inserted in questions each time they attempt the assignment. This enables instructors to create a template assignment and lets students rework it repeatedly, with each session generating a different version of the algorithmic variables within the assignment, but still covering the same skills.

Notes: The system records graded results for every repeated attempt, and instructors can control the grading policies, taking the best score, average score, or another option. You can view results from all sessions, including the unique randomized variable data for each assignment attempt a student makes. The system records the student's best grade. The system still produces algorithmically varied versions of the assignment for different students, but each student sees only one version of the assignment regardless of repeated attempts.

Generate a New Question Order

In Step 3. Set Policies, under the Type of Assignment tab, it is possible to automatically scramble the sequence of questions delivered each time a new assignment is presented to a student.

Use the drop-down menu (shown below) to select Never, On First Attempt, or Every Attempt.

Each option is thoroughly explained in Table 3.2.

Table 3.2: Randomly Order Menu Options

Option

Description

Never (default)

When an individual student takes an assignment, they will see the questions in the order the instructor chose when creating the assignment. If the student has multiple attempts at an assignment, the order of the questions will not change.

On First Attempt

When an individual student takes an assignment for the first time, the order of the questions will be scrambled. If the student has multiple attempts at an assignment, the order of the questions will not change.

Every Attempt

When an individual student takes an assignment, whether only once or multiple times, the order of the questions will always be different.


Note: On the final Summary screen, random question ordering is referred to as Versioning. This term is used because scrambling the sequence of question delivery produces multiple versions of assignments. Using algorithmically generated questions within assignments creates multiple versions of questions as well.

Printable Assignments Option

To make your assignments printable:

  1. From the Assignment Editor, go to the Set Policies tab.
  1. From the Type of Assignment pane, select the Printable Version check box.

  • With this option selected, students login and the system generates a new assignment (with algorithmically generated variable data where appropriate). At the next step, however, students are offered the option to generate a printable version of the test suitable for printing and working offline.
  • Printable assignments operate like a homework session that was interrupted before grading. The student can log in again and enter responses for automatic system grading and recording scores in the Gradebook. Or, instructors may prefer to have students submit their completed assignments on paper for hand-grading by instructors or teaching assistants.
Proctored Exams

Proctored Exams are similar to Homework or Quiz assignments, but with an additional security measure to confirm the identity of the student taking the test. This full-screen mode blocks students from accessing external web sites or other programs on their computers while taking an assignment.

Details about Proctored Browser:

  • Students must be registered in your class.
  • All Proctored tests require a proctor to authorize students submitting their test for grading.
  • You can require proctor authorization to validate student identity and grant assignment access at the start of a proctored exam. In the Set Policies tab, select the Proctor Sign-in to Start check box.
  • (Optional) You can require that students use the Proctored Browser for a Proctored Exam assignment type.
  • The Proctored Browser mode can be used in Google Chrome™ or Mozilla Firefox® only. It is not compatible with Internet Explorer® and Safari®. If a student attempts to take an assignment outside of the supported web browsers, a warning message appears and students must close the window and try again in a compatible web browser.
Types of Proctors

There are two types of proctors: Global and Local.

  • Global proctors are defined by the System Administrator and can give authorization for any class.
  • Local proctors are defined by the Instructor and can only give authorization for a particular class.

Note: Proctors can give authorization directly at the student's computer, or remotely through Proctor Tools. In the former case, the proctor must sign in using a login name and password, however, remotely, the proctor's credentials are not needed.

Require Proctored Browser

Under the Type of Assignment tab, you can require that students use the Proctored Browser for a Proctored Exam assignment type. This full-screen mode blocks students from accessing external web sites or other programs on their computers while taking the assignment. Note: The Proctored Browser mode supports connections to other course management systems.

Proctored Browser must be enabled in the Assignment Editor > Step 3. Set Policies by selecting Require Proctored Browser, as shown in Figure 3.4 below.

Enabling Proctored Browser

Figure 3.4: Enabling Proctored Browser


Important: It is good practice to preview and test your created assignments in Proctored Browser mode to ensure they behave as expected.

For more details on the Proctored Browser option, see Using Proctored Browser.

Mastery Assignments and Study Session

Study Session and Mastery assignments usually draw from a large pool of assignment material (often algorithmically generated to produce limitless question permutations). There is no pre-established number of questions for either Mastery or Study Session assignments, questions are drawn from pools throughout the study session.

Assignments are delivered one-question-at-a-time, and the student submits each question for grading individually and immediately, instead of having the entire test graded at the end. These assignments are also sometimes described as learning dialogues, because of their question-answer-next question style.

Mastery and Study Session assignment types emphasize the following pedagogical approaches:

  • For Mastery assignments, instructors create carefully structured collections of questions grouped by learning objectives. These assignments usually draw from a large pool of assignment material, often algorithmically generated to produce limitless question permutations. Mastery assignments require a login and password, and results are recorded in the Gradebook.
  • For Study Sessions, students control the study process by practicing question after question. Questions can provide hints and full solutions that are available to students while they work. Results are displayed one question at a time and are not recorded in the Gradebook.
Mastery Assignments

For Mastery assignment types you first create an assignment by selecting questions (Step 2 in the Assignment Editor). However, when selecting questions for a mastery assignment you must give careful pedagogical consideration to structuring questions by learning objective.

Details for Mastery Assignments
  • Assignment results are recorded in the Gradebook for the class.
  • Mastery assignments can be attempted multiple times for credit. If you want to limit the number of attempts a student can make on a particular assignment, configure the assignment properties.
  • As students work through a Mastery assignment, they are shown information about their progress along with the requirements for the learning objective and the assignment. This information is shown in a Progress Report box that updates each time they complete and grade a question.
  • When students demonstrate the required level of mastery (by answering the minimum number of questions correctly), the system allows them to move ahead to the next learning objective's material.
To Access Mastery Assignments
  1. From the Assignment Editor, go to Step 3. Set Policies.
  1. From the Type of Assignment pane, select Mastery Dialog.
  1. Click Edit Mastery Policies to see the advanced features. For more information, see Setting Mastery Policies
Setting Mastery Policies

If you select the Mastery type for the Assignment, you can set learning objectives or competency levels that must be met before a student is allowed to proceed with the assignment.

To Establish Policies for your Assignment:

  1. In the Set Policies tab of the Assignment Editor, click the Edit Mastery Policies. See Figure 3.5.
Policies for Mastery Assignments

Figure 3.5: Policies for Mastery Assignments


  1. Use the drop-down fields to establish rules. Penalties apply to the selected topic and also to any preceding (or controlling) topics on which the selected topic depends. The system returns students to the earlier topics where a learning need has been demonstrated until they reach your required level of competency.
Example

Consider an assignment in which Topic B depends on Topic A. Both have a basic requirement of 3 correct questions, and Topic B has a penalty of one additional question for every wrong answer. If the student answers three questions correctly in Topic A and then moves to Topic B but gets a question wrong, both topics now have a requirement of 4 correct questions, so the student no longer meets the requirements for Topic A. The system returns to Topic A and the student must answer an additional question correctly in order to proceed again to Topic B.

Note: When delivering Mastery assignments, the system gives students information about their progress towards meeting the requirements for the assignment. It updates this information with every question that it grades. If students demonstrate a lower level of mastery (through repeated incorrect responses), you can establish penalties so that the system moves the student backwards to the previous learning objective until minimal proficiency is established again.

AdvancedPoliciesinAssignments

Question groups can be especially important in the instructional design of Mastery assignments. For more information, see Assignment Editor Step 2: Creating New Questions Groups.

Study Session Assignments

Study Session assignments draw from a bank of questions. They allow students repeated practice one question at a time. These assignments are primarily a teaching tool, whereas other types of assignments might be considered testing tools (although all assignment types do both to some degree). This assignment type is ideal for anonymous, student-driven, self-paced review.

Although you can create a specific content structure for study session assignments, you can also allow the system to randomly select from a pool of questions. Consequently, Study Session assignments typically draw from Question Groups. Students work at their own pace on questions drawn from a pool of instructor-selected questions.

If hints and feedback are part of the question content, students can use them during Study Sessions.

Grading

Questions are graded one at a time and results are not recorded in the Gradebook. When the system grades a question, it does not reveal the correct answer. It simply indicates whether or not they answered the question correctly. If students answered correctly, it proceeds to the next question. If they answered incorrectly, they can view the Hints and then return to make another attempt at the question, or they can view the question's feedback and proceed to the next question. Students can also skip questions and leave the test at any time.

General Properties

The General Properties options are shown below:

General Properties are configured in the Set Policies tab of the Assignment Editor. These include:

Maximum Number of Attempts

You can set the maximum number of times a student may take an assignment. While the default setting is Unlimited, the instructor can also set a maximum number of attempts between one and five. If the student exceeds the maximum designated number, a message is displayed prior to the start of the assignment indicating the restriction. In particular cases, you may choose to allow an exception for a student. To authorize an exception, the student must click on Request exception after they have exceeded their maximum number of attempts at the assignment. To give the student one more attempt at the assignment, a proctor or an instructor must provide their login and password.

Time Limit

You can set the passing score and time limit for an assignment. If there is a time limit set for the test in the assignment, the program shows the student the time remaining during the course of the test. If the time limit expires during the test, the system informs the student, and does not allow the student to answer any more questions. However, the student can submit the test for grading. As students approach the time limit, a pop-up window warns them of their remaining time. Students are not allowed to answer additional questions once they exceed the time limit; however, they can submit their work up to that point for grading.

When the student has completed the assignment and submitted it for grading, the system displays a graded assignment report that includes the score (for example, 6 out of 8) as well as details on the grading of each question, along with feedback for all of the questions. (These options can be configured).

Note: The timer does not stop until the student runs out of time or clicks Submit Assignment. The timer will continue to run even if the student clicks Quit & Save.

Passing Score

If you select the Practice, Homework, or Proctored Exam assignment types, you can set a Passing score for the assignment. If you set a score, the system assesses each try at the assignment as either Pass or Fail, and records this information in the Gradebook automatically. The field shows the total available score for the assignment (for example, out of 10), which varies according to the composition of your assignment. For Homework and Proctored Exams, if you choose to set a passing grade and you have selected to receive email notifications when students complete the assignment, the emails will include information on whether the student meets the passing criteria. (See Receiving Email Notification).

You can customize the message students receive under Feedback After Assignment.

(For more information on feedback in general, see Configuring Feedback Options).

Number of Questions per Page

By default, the program displays one question per page when presenting an assignment to students. You can use this option to deliver more than one question per page. If you set the number of questions to be greater than 5, a warning dialog will appear.

Note: Mastery and Study Session assignments automatically serve one question at a time. This is part of their instructional design and this setting cannot be changed for these assignment types.

Advanced Policies

You can restrict access to an assignment so that only students meeting certain criteria can take it. You can also create assignment requirements that refer to the current assignment, even if you are working with a new assignment that has not yet been saved. The assignment on which you are working is now listed along with all other available assignments in the Criterion specification box. This is useful when you want to ensure minimum competencies in prerequisite topics. For example, you can limit access to students who have already passed an earlier assignment.

To Restrict Assignment Access:

  1. From the Assignment Editor screen in the Set Policies tab, click Advanced Policies. (This can only be modified if an assignment is inactive).
  1. A new window with advanced policies opens, as shown below.

  1. A Criterion 1 rule-based field opens. Specify the desired criteria.
  1. Save Changes to Criterion: After you have specified the desired criteria, click Back to save changes made to the criteria and return to the Set Policies tab.
Criterion Options
  • The first drop-down list gives a choice between has and has not.
  • The second drop-down list provides a range of conditions, as shown below.

  • The drop-down list on the right contains all of the assignments for the class, including the assignment currently being created or edited.
  • Adding an OR Criterion: Click Add alternative criterion immediately below the list of assignments. The program adds the list fields for another criterion.
  • Adding an AND Criterion: Click Add additional criterion at the bottom right of the form, below the frame that encloses the criterion fields. The program adds another criterion group, in a separate frame.
  • Deleting a Criterion: To delete an OR criterion, click on Remove criterion inside the frame for that criterion group. The program deletes the last criterion from the group. You may have to change the settings for the remaining criteria in the group to set the requirements that you want. To delete an AND criterion group, click Remove criterion at the bottom of the form, below the last criterion group. The program deletes the last group. You may have to change the settings for the remaining groups to set the requirements that you want.
Scheduling & Visibility

From Scheduling & Visibility in the Set Policies tab, you see this screen:

Visibility

By default, the Visible (Master) check box is checked. Clearing the Visible (Master) check box under Scheduling & Visibility temporarily excludes the assignment from the list of assignments displayed to students on your Class Homepage.

See Also:

Disabling Assignments

Assignment Visibility

Start and End Date

By default, the system does not establish a scheduled start or end time for assignments. Using the calendar function under Scheduling in the Set Policies tab, you can set Start and End times for each assignment. These times govern the availability of the assignment to students in your class. Students must complete their assignment sessions by submitting their work to be graded before the time and date specified in the assignment schedule. Scheduled times refer to your system's time zone setting (indicated in the Scheduling section, and set by your System Administrator).

Note: If scheduling policies are set, then a calendar () icon appears next to the Assignment in the Content Repository.

Before and after the indicated availability window, the assignment is displayed in the assignment list viewable by students on your Class Homepage; however, it cannot be selected. Note that for the instructor, unavailable assignments appear in the list of assignments on the Assignment Editor page. Additionally, unavailable assignments will appear in a student's past results page if the student completed them.

Restricting Feedback

You can restrict feedback so that feedback details are not displayed until a certain date. Check the Restrict Feedback Until check box and click the calendar icon to choose a date. For more details on feedback, see Configuring Feedback Options.

Feedback Options

There are many options to configuring feedback during and after an assignment.

Feedback (During)

During the assignment, you can:

  • Display hints during an assignment (Select Show Hints)
  • Show the current grade at the top of the assignment. (Select Show Current Grade)
  • To allow students to resubmit responses to questions during the assignment (Select Allow Resubmit) Note: Resubmission of answers is always allowed for Anonymous Practice, Mastery, and Study Session assignments types. This option is available for Homework/Quiz and Proctored Exam assignment types.
  • Show the correct answer.
  • Show the question's feedback (if specified during question creation).
  • Allow or prevent students from resubmitting answers to questions. This is available for Homework/Quiz and Proctored Exam assignment types.
  • Allow students to check grades and receive feedback.

From Feedback (During) in the Set Policies tab, you see this screen:

Feedback (After)

The default system behavior is to show the final assignment grade (Show Final Grade and Show Correct Answer) as well as question feedback, but you can switch either of these elements on or off, control access to hints during assignment sessions (before grading), or withhold feedback until after the assignment due date has passed.

Note: Restricting feedback until the assignment due date is useful if you want to prevent students who finish the assignment early from giving answers to other students.

From Feedback (After) in the Set Policies tab, you see this screen:

Note: If you want to use custom messages instead of the default messages, you can edit the grading message and feedback messages, respectively, under Set Grading Message and Set Pass/Fail Message.

Notes: Some caution should be used in pairing some of these feedback options. Examples are:

  1. Selecting Allow Resubmit and How Did I Do? provides students with the equivalent of a solution manual while taking the assignment. Students can check the feedback and change their response to the question.
  1. Selecting Show Current Grade and How Did I Do? will enable students to get immediate feedback on questions and then retry the questions.
Hints and Feedback

You can allow access to question hints (if they exist) in any assignment type. You can add Hints or Feedback by using the Content Repository and editing these fields for individual questions. For more information, see Adding and Editing Hints and Adding and Editing Feedback, respectively. In a grading report, the system displays question feedback from the Feedback field if it exists, or if not, shows the correct answer value (as defined in the Answer field).

Reporting

You can opt to receive an email (with the class name, assignment, student name, and their grade) whenever a student completes the assignment in Homework and Proctored Exam mode.

To receive email notifications:

  1. In the Assignment Editor, select the Set Policies tab.
  1. Scroll down and expand the Reporting panel.
  1. Select the Email Reports To check box and enter your email address.
IP Address/Host Names Whitelist

You can restrict access to an assignment to specific IP addresses or Host Names.

You can require students take an assignment from a restricted set of IP addresses by selecting from a list of predefined groups set up by your system administrator or creating a custom IP address restriction. IP addresses can be given individually, with wildcards, or using Netmask format. Enter only one IP address or pattern per line.

To restrict access to certain IP addresses or Host Names, do one or more of the following:

  • Select one or more IP address groups from the list provided (if it exists)
  • Enter your custom IP address or Host Name restrictions.

IP addresses must be entered according to the following rules:

  • IP addresses can be given individually or by using patterns.
  • Enter one IP address per line.
  • Patterns can be entered in Netmask format or using wildcards (for example, 10.10.2.*).
  • Host names can be entered using wildcards also (for example, *.maplesoft.com)

For further assistance with entering appropriate IP addresses or Host Names, contact your system administrator.

When you have completed your assignment rules and policies (under Step 3. Set Policies), proceed to the Summary screen.

Assignment Editor Summary Screen

Once you exit the Assignment Editor, you are prompted to review your assignment information on the final Summary screen.

You can review the following information:

  • Assignment type
  • Questions selected and their names
  • Scheduled availability
  • Rules and policies you established

The Summary screen is shown in Figure 3.6. This exports them as a course module.

Summary of Assignment Details

Figure 3.6: Summary of Assignment Details


To accept and publish the assignment you have created or modified, click Save & Close on the Summary screen. If you have scheduled it for immediate availability, your new assignment is available for students on the Class Homepage.

Important: The system does not save partially completed assignments until you click Save & Close on the Summary screen. If you begin to create an assignment and then abandon it without clicking Save & Close, your additions and changes will be lost.
