Question: I use google classroom. Students do the assignments from classcraft which links to GC. However, I am seeing a lot of students somehow moving onto quest objectives without actually completing assignments. Does the self-paced mode actually check to see if the assignment is submitted, or does it let them move on at their own discretion?
Idea: Any plans to set filters on self-paced? E.g. Grade thresholds for pass/fail of the quest objective. I know I have asked that before, but the squeaky wheel gets the oil. The game feels clunky and awkward like this. Students keep asking, "When will you let us move onto the next quest objective," if I don't use self-paced, but if I do, they either give me crappy work to move on or they seem to submit without actually doing the assignment. I love the motivation of quest mode, and so I will continue struggling through it, but please please please give us a pass/fail threshold.
In my head, I can see myself designing a massive quest tree for each chapter/subject. There will be direct quest lines that require pass/fail thresholds to continue, and side quests when students don't meet that threshold. The side quests reinforce material that students struggle with, giving them a second shot at continuing. Students that work quickly get rewarded with side quests that give them bonus points.
