Last Monday we showed you how to:
1) Build a course outline- for your courses.
2) Add students- to utilize the student platform.
3) Manage course rosters- by organizing the added students to courses.
4) Assign & maintain assignments and e-units- to courses.
After you’ve assigned coursework, the next step is assessment. MYcaert has an online assessment tool, with a bank of pre-written test questions. Each question is aligned to Common Core, Next Generation Science, and/or National AFNR standards. You can create your assessment in "My Quizzes".
A lesson plan will have 10-15 questions in the CAERT question bank. To start, you will go to page 32 of the User’s Guide, and follow the simple steps. Then jump to pages 35-36, to "Add Questions from the CAERT Question Bank".
After the quiz, you can view the quiz results under My Quizzes → Current School Year Report.
Quiz Question Summaries This report shows how frequently a question is answered correctly or incorrectly to demonstrate validity and reliability and to indicate what concepts might require additional reinforcement. You can find this at the bottom of the "Current School Year Report Page."
Quiz Scores This report lists all of the individual quizzes you have given to your students. Clicking on the name of any quiz will bring up a page listing the student scores for that quiz. It will also show if a student has taken the quiz more than once. You can click on the View Student Quiz Summary column to see each individual submission by a student.
Additionally, pre-tests and post-tests have been a hot topic among teachers. A brief pre-test and post-test tutorial is available here, to show you how easy it is! Remember the “Edit Question” function. It enables you to create similar, not identical, questions for your post test!
We love to meet our subscribers! If you are going to be in Indianapolis October 19-21st, please stop by booth #1959 in Teacher’s World at the Career Expo!
Today’s, and next Monday’s Blogs relate how to best utilize MYcaert while you are at National FFA Convention.
How do you plan to manage assignments and homework for your students while you are out? MYcaert allows you the opportunity to control and maintain assignments remotely. For example, if your students finish reading their e-units and completing their assigned homework sooner than you planned, you may assign more work or a pop-quiz!
To begin, this is a simple 4-step process. See the pages mentioned in the User’s Guide:
1)Build a Course Outline (pg. 7)
2) Add Students (pg 14)
3) Manage Course Rosters (pg 15-16)
4) Assign/ Maintain E-Units and PowerPoints (pg 18-19)
It all starts with a course outline. You will need to build one in order to assign e-units and PowerPoints. For additional help, you can see a short video tutorial here!
You can also add customizable dates and assignments to student calendars. For example, you may have assigned a project for students in a specific course. The calendar will allow you to add important deadlines, and important documents for the student(s) to view, in the Custom Calendar!
