Buzz: Product Feedback
Mike Depta pointed out that Buzz is not doing something that BrainHoney could do.
When a teacher puts in scores that results in a student getting over 100% in BrainHoney, like this:
They get an alert like this:
When the teacher does something like this in Buzz:
No alert comes up:
Personally, I would like to see both systems changed to throw an alert any time a teacher assigns points for an individual item that are more than what that item is worth. The current BH approach only helps catch issues where the overall score ended up being over the total amount possible. So, if a teacher made an error grading an essay question, giving it 10 points instead of 5, but the student missed 6 other points on the test, no alert would pop up. If we were able to incorporate my feature request, the teacher would need to confirm the over-assignment of points (which might be intentional in some case uses--trying to give extra credit for exceptional answers for example) and be more certain that the overall score was then correct.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for considering this request.
