How to run Application Cases to Individual students

This article will show you how to run your newly created Application Case activity to individual students.

  • Please access your list of modules & activities via your course options and locate the Application that you wish to run. It should have a not started label under its status:

  • The student will see a placeholder screen once you start the activity, which will give them the option to click on a Start Test button.

  • Please note that the time starts when the professor starts the Application Case and not when student clicks to enter it in synchronous mode.

  • To start your Application Case, please click on the start button from within the activity dashboard:

  • The student should go through and click on their answer choice until they finish the Application Case. Please note that the settings you turn on or off during the creation of your activity will affect the way the activity is conducted. For example, you may choose to turn off the ability to allow the student to go back and change their answer among other features which could be found during the setup of the activity.

  • Students also see a timer clock displayed on the top of the screen that tells them how much longer they have to finish the Application Case. This time can be extended or stopped early via the teacher dashboard if need be:

  • Let's take a look at the Instructor's dashboard while running an Application Case activity.

  • You may look at the data you have available to you at this stage.

  • The first thing you might notice is that there are unassigned students in place. You will need to assign these students into individual teams via the option provided.

  • In the "Status" box, you can then see how quickly students are getting through the Application Case

  • Please note, if teams are done sooner than you expected, you can choose to click the "End Application" button. If you find that students need more time, as they often do, you can click the "Extend Time" button on the top of the page next to the timer clock. These options are at the top of the page:

  • You will also see your "Activity Settings" box which gives you a glimpse of the settings chosen for your activity during the creation process. That's at the top left corner of the dashboard.

  • You will initially notice that the questions will be listed in the "Item Analysis" board according to the students fail rate, ranging from 100% to 0%. This section will help you analyze how your students are doing on a question by question basis.

  • At the very top of the Student Analysis table you will see the grade legend tool which makes grading easier and less time consuming on multiple choice question types. You will then see rows that correspond to each student that took place in this activity. Note, that in one of the team answer choices you see multiple letters (C, D) and this is because that signifies a change of answers by the student.

  • As you move further into the evaluation of your students. You can start clicking on the "View More" hyperlink to see any elaborations that have been left. On MCQ type questions, you will see a notification letting you know that your student teams made an elaboration on that specific answer.

  • After the Application Case is over you may choose to go into presentation mode. You may do so by clicking on the Open Presentation Mode button in the questions area.
