Being able to see every answer from every student is useful, but sometimes you can’t see the wood for the trees – it’s just too much detail. For a long time, I have wanted to offer key-concept analysis of every assignment, but have stumbled on the problem of finding someone to group our 120,000+ questions into meaningful categories.
Finally, we have a solution. It’s called “crowdsourced analytics”, and I am delighted that we are launching it today. Here’s how it works…
- the first teacher to analyse a particular quiz enters their own analysis keywords, and groups the questions under them.
- every teacher who assigns that quiz to their own student has the choice of using the existing keywords, or adding their own.
- there is a hidden voting mechanism that will promote the most popular keywords so that over time a consensus of the most useful analysis terms will emerge.
