Assessment corrections

I put my class worksheets in Buzz as an assessment. I would like my students to be able to make corrections to their work after they are graded. Currently, once I grade it the students cannot go back unless I choose "allow retry" but when I do this, it resets the entire assignment. Please help

If you are just looking for a place to add points for their corrections without deleting their original grade I would suggest making an extra credit assignment. Name it the same as whatever they're correcting but with the word "corrections" at the end. Put it directly after the original in the syllabus so they are adjacent in the gradebook. Since it is extra credit any points entered here would be equivalent to adding them to the original score.

If this isn't what you were asking, can you provide more details? You say the assignment is an uploaded worksheet. How are the students answering? Are they typing their answers into Buzz? Are they uploading pictures of their work? How do they see what questions they got wrong; or is that the problem?

they are answering the questions as fill in the blank, ordering, essay etc.   Once it is graded they cannot go back in and change their answers (corrections) this is what I need them to be able to do.

Unfortunately, I don't believe there is a way to accomplish that without redoing the entire assessment. This would make a good feature request though! Maybe someone from Agilix will chime in with an idea.

Jeanni, 

 

Don't put it in as an assessment, instead enter it as "practice questions". This will allow them to retry a single question instead of having to retake the entire assessment. When you create this just make sure to select the proper grade category if you want it to be weighted as an assessment. I do this a lot for my math type of assessments. 

If these questions are part of a larger unit or test, you can separate them and just turn it into two assessments. One is for the multiple choice knowledge type stuff and the other built under "practice questions" would give them the opportunities you are looking for. 

 

I hope this helps!
