Quests – Accessing and using the Progress Center

*Quests are a Premium feature

The Quests Progress Center enables you to easily edit an objective — its tasks, assignment details, and more — as well as view and manage student progress.

By simply hovering your mouse cursor over an objective, you can get a preview of its completion. The small icons below the objective name let you know at a glance:

  • How many students have viewed the objective (silhouettes.png)
  • How many students have successfully (checkmark.png) or unsuccessfully (x.png) completed the objective

Moreover, the objective’s colored circle represents:

  • In red, the proportion of students who unsuccessfully completed the objective
  • In green, the proportion of students who successfully completed the objective
  • In grey, the proportion of students whose outcome hasn’t been determined
  • In transparency, the proportion of students who haven’t progressed to the objective yet

To access the Progress Center and view the objective completion in more detail, click on the objective on your quest map. Your list of objectives appears on the lefthand side of the Progress Center. On the righthand side, you can click the section titles at the top to view and manage the student progress, story, task, assignment, and discussion for the selected objective.

 

Progress

In the “Progress” section, you can view the list of students who have unlocked the objective. If the objective contains an assignment, you can see a chart of which students have turned in their work and whether they’re early, on time, or late with their submission.

 

Evaluate student work

You can download each assignment individually or click “Download All” at the top of the chart to download all files at once. Feel free to annotate and grade the assignments, then upload them.

Make sure to keep the same file names that were provided when you downloaded the assignments originally. That way, when you click “Upload All,” the game will automatically sort the graded versions of the assignments to the appropriate students.

When uploading graded assignments, you can also enter a comment to add feedback for students to review.

If you deem the student’s work unsatisfying, click the trashcan to remove their assignment and have them start over. As long as you haven’t selected an outcome for the objective, they will be able to upload a new file.

Tip: Communicate clearly with the student that they have a second chance! Students aren’t notified when you give them feedback or when you delete their file.

 

Select the outcome

Once you’re satisfied with all submissions and are ready to have students move forward in your quest, select the appropriate outcome: The checkmark means the student successfully completed the objective; the X means they have unsuccessfully completed it. Both outcomes can lead students to the same next objective or to different objectives, depending on how you set up your quests.

 

Discussion

If you have commenting enabled on a post, then students can respond and engage in discussion online. You can see all comments for the objective in the “Discussion” section of the Progress Center.

Promote good digital citizenship by rewarding students with XP or GP for thoughtful, positive comments. You can discourage negative online behavior by removing HP from any students who post inappropriately. Students can also take action when they see another student posting inappropriate content by “flagging” the comment for the teacher’s attention. This will remain anonymous on the student side but will show you (the teacher) which student flagged the comment. You can then decide the next best action, such as removing the comment and/or removing HP from the offending student.

As the teacher, you can post new comments or reply to any existing comment as well. Edit any student’s comment with the pencil button.
