*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 ()
- How many students have successfully () or unsuccessfully () 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 (Self-Paced Progress is automatically marked as successfully completed)
- 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.
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.
Click the gear icon in the top right to view the progress settings for this objective and enable or disable the Self-Paced Progress option.
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.
Note: With Self-Paced Progress, you will see a blue border around this section, and students will automatically receive a green checkmark for completing the objective and/or assignment. You can learn more about Self-Paced Progress and how to manage student outcomes (including assignments) here.
If you have commenting enabled on a post, students can respond and engage in discussion online. To modify your discussion settings, click the gear icon in the top right of the “Discussion” section.
You can see all comments for the objective in 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 by clicking on “EDIT.” Clicking on the “MORE” button will bring up the full editor, which will enable you to format your text or embed images or videos. You can also attach files from your computer, Google Drive, or Microsoft OneDrive in the Discussion by hovering over the paperclip icon and clicking on the corresponding button.
