Buzz: Product Feedback
The way Buzz currently scores practice activities is counter-intuitive for students, parents, and teachers alike. Can you please have scores in the gradebook update with each question a student completes in a practice activity? It should at least be an option.
For comparison, let's use the real-life example of a worksheet. If a student hands in a worksheet and correctly completes 9 questions and leaves one question blank I would give that student a score of 9 out of 10 points (as would every teacher I know). Buzz, however, doesn't give the student a score at all. Worse, since I have treat unsubmitted as zero checked, the student actually earns 0 points even though they correctly completed 90% of the work! This would also be true for the many teachers who use the course setting to apply zero after the due date. I understand that you would want to differentiate an incomplete assignment somehow. One option would be to make the score a different color or even better, highlight the cell in the gradebook similar to the pink gradations for late work. The shading could lighten as more of the assignment is completed.
It is a difficult discussion with parents when I have to explain why their student doesn't get points for correctly answered questions. Especially when the justification is "that's just the way the technology works." Please consider making this improvement to Buzz.
