Buzz: Product Feedback
Hi! The update from 12/14 has made it much more time consuming for me to work in the teacher Gradebook part of Buzz. It is quite a big deal for me --and other teachers at our school. But it is a bit difficult to explain, so, Buzz Help, please feel free to contact me. :)
Here is the situation: In Gradebook. Filtered by Start Date or Gradable Completion.
Now, I want to go in and exempt students from the Final Exams or Zero out assignments with a retry. I used to be able to click into the individual student and zero out or exempt, and the Buzz screen would STAY in the filter mode VIEW I had placed it in (with students organized by start date, etc). I could go through the kids and do what needed to be done pretty easily. But with today's update, every time I exempt one student from the test (or zero out and give a retry for each assignment), the grade book REVERTS back to the original view and I have to filter again (for start date or completion) after each entry. It makes it almost impossible to do what took me just a few minutes before this update.
Note: I cannot EXEMPT or zero out WITH A RETRY in "Quick Grades" . If I could, the problem would be alleviated that way. In fact, if you could provide both of those features in "Quick Grade" that would be even faster than what I was able to do before.
Note: At our school, we often have to go in and zero out kids for perhaps half the assignments if they are not finished by the end of the semester. But we have to make each retry-able in case they decide to extend the class and finish it. It would help so much to have a quick way of doing this.
