Once you click on an assessment, unit, or lesson it will highlight blue and then click the “Preview” button on the right upper corner. The course preview will open in a new web browser tab. The course preview will be identical to the student’s view when they begin the assigned course.

3.2 What happens if I answer the questions in the course preview?

You can navigate through the course and complete the questions as a student would. Don’t worry, the course is in preview mode, therefore, no data will be tracked.

3.3 How to navigate the course when you preview it

In the “Preview” mode, you can navigate throughout the course by clicking on the menu located at the upper left corner. Once the course outline appears, click on the unit, lesson, or assessment you would like to preview. Use the arrow buttons at the bottom of the page to navigate between pages in a unit or lesson. If you are previewing an assessment, click on the red “Start Assessment” button to begin the assessment. Remember that the course is in preview mode, therefore, no data will be tracked.

3.4 Previewing student accommodations

Click on the gear icon on the top right corner of the course preview page to access the accommodations and the features that are available to your students.

4. Assigning Courses to your Students

Your next step is to assign courses to your students. Students will only be able to see courses assigned to them. 

4.1 How to assign courses to your students

To assign courses to your students, click on the “My Students” tab.

4.2 On the left side of the “My Students” homepage, select the student you would like to assign a course to. The student’s name will highlight in blue.

4.3 Click the “+ Assign New Course” button in order to assign courses to the student.

 

4.4 Select the courses that you would like to assign and click “Next”.

4.5 Learning Order and Pacing:

When you assign a course to a student, you have 2 sets of options: Learning Order and Pacing

Learning Order: If you select the “Units and Lessons must be completed in order” option, students will be required to complete all questions in each lesson before moving on to the next lesson. If you select “Units and lessons can be completed in any order,” students will be able to start any lesson or assessment at any time.

Course that was assigned to be taken in order can be changed to be take in any order even after students start taking the course, but not the other way around.

Pacing: Essentially, this setting lets you lock students from moving past specific lessons or units without your approval. You can set “checkpoints” on specific lessons or assessments and will need to explicitly approve the checkpoint to allow students to advance.

  1. If you select “let students go at their own pace,” students are free to move on at their own pace.
  2. If you select “Decide when students can move on to the next unit,” a checkpoint will be placed at the end of each unit.
  3. If you select “Choose the specific lessons where students will need approval to proceed,” a list of the course units and lessons will appear. You can select the specific lessons or assessments where you’d like to set checkpoints.

Note: Once a student started a course, you cannot change these pacing options.

Once the student reaches a checkpoint you will receive a notification in the activity tab. Click “Approve Now” to approve the checkpoint and allow the student to continue to next lesson.

In addition, you can unlock all checkpoints, before a specific lesson or unit for all students taking a course by using the “Change Pacing” button.

Select a lesson or assessment, all students will be allowed to proceed up to, and click “Okay”.

Learning order and pacing tips:

There are helpful ways that the learning order and pacing features can be used together. For example, you’d like today’s class to take lesson 4 of unit 1. One of your students may have been previously absent and that student is only on lessons 2.

By setting the learning order to allow that student to take lessons out of order, that student can take lesson 4 with the rest of the class. If you use this tip in combination with pacing, you can let students access the lessons they need while preventing them from jumping too far ahead.

4.6 How to assign a course to multiple students

Click on my course, then click on the tile of the course you would like to assign.

4.7 Click on the “+ Assign New Student” button.

4.8 Mark the students that you would like to assign to the course and click “Next”. Note that the number of available licenses is indicated at the button of the window.

4.9 How to unassign a course

You can unassign a course if the student has not yet started taking the course. When a student is unassigned from a course, its license returns to the unused licenses pool and can be assigned to another student. Remember, if a student has begun a course, the license cannot be assigned to another student. 

In order to unassign a course go to “My Students”, then on the left side of “My Students” page, select the student. The student’s name will highlight in blue. Click the “Unassign” button for the course you would like to unassign.

4.10 How to restart or abort a course

You can restart a course that was completed or abort a course that is in progress. When restarting or aborting a course, student’s progress, answers, grades, and teachers’ feedback will be deleted without a possibility to recover the data. Please use this option with caution.

4.10 In order to restart a completed course, go to “My Students”, then on the left side of “My Students” page, select the student. The student’s name will highlight in blue. Hover over the row that represents the course that you would like to restart and click on the three dots menu on the right side of the row. Click on the “Restart Course” option.

4.12 In order to abort a course that is in process, go to “My Students”, then on the left side of “My Students” page, select the student. The student’s name will highlight in blue.

5. Tracking Students’ Progress, Grading, and Feedback

As students work through the courses in ONEder Academy, their progress is automatically tracked. If an assessment question is not one that is automatically tracked, such as a writing assignment, you will need to provide a grade for the student to move on to the next unit. You can also update students’ grades and/or provide feedback to your students for both formative questions within the lessons and summative questions within the assessments. You can also allow students to re-take assessments.

5.1 My students’ progress

There are several ways to track students’ progress in Oneder Academy. To track recent students’ progress and find assessments that require grading or feedback opportunities, click on the “Activity” tab. On the “Activity” tab, you will see notifications about the recent progress of your students. On this tab, you can see information such as which student has completed the course, feedback you submitted, assessments that are awaiting grading, and much more.

In “Run Details” navigate to the assessment you would like the student to retake and click the “Retake Assessment” button.

Note: The old grade will not be saved, nor will the grades be averaged if a student takes the assessment multiple times. ONEder Academy will store the last grade for the student.

If you’d like to keep a record of the grade, you can download current progress report before clicking “Retake Assessment”.

After the teacher clicks “Retake Assessment” the student will receive a notification to their Activity feed. Students will click “Retake Assessment” action button and be redirected to the assessment that needs to be re-taken.
