As an organizer of your Classroom, you have an orange bar along the top of your wiki that students don’t. It easily allows you to access Members, Projects, Settings and Assessment.
The first thing you’ll see when you click Assessment, is your Engagement page. Each of your students appears on the Engagement page, and you get an accurate and real-time reading of their activity on the wiki. You’ll be able to monitor their level of contribution, see whether they are reading or writing, and give them support when and where it’s needed. The graphs are constantly refreshing, so you can stay on track even in the middle of your lesson.
The circles next to each name help you quickly identify students who are extremely active, online doing moderate work, or not online at all. The graphs for each student highlight if they are online viewing a wiki (the thick green line), typing characters into a wiki (the thick black bars), or have recently saved a new page version (red dots). At a quick glance, you can see who in your class might be having a slow start and immediately provide the support or encouragement they need.
While seeing which students are active is good, being able to see specific work done by a student is even better. By clicking on the one of the red dots, you’ll pull up the actual page edit the student did, allowing you to see any deletions and insertions and gauge their understanding of the assignment. Directly from here, you can insert comments and discussion posts to encourage the student and provide feedback.
You can monitor engagement by user or by Project. By switching to Project View, you can glance at activity by each individual team, helping you spot check a struggling group and provide assistance. Use the Filter dropdown to choose a specific project quickly.
