MyOMLab: Some Changes for Spring Semester
Inactivity Timeout. Students who show no activity for 60 minutes when working in a homework assignment will be prompted to continue. If no response is given, the assignment session will end in 5 minutes. “Activity” is defined as any keystrokes or mouse clicks within the question or assignment, and any work completed prior to the session ending is saved.
Question Pooling. When creating tests or quizzes, instructors will now see the “Pool” and “Unpool” buttons–in other words, pooling has been enabled by default, thereby saving instructors a few clicks and some precious time.
Enhancements to Student Results Reporting. Instructors will be able to easily and automatically import student results from courses between different editions of a book and/or a national to custom version of a course. Instructors can import results even for assignments that differ in the number and type of questions by manually mapping the assignments. Study Plan mastery results are also transferrable to the new course, should instructors choose to do so.
Managing Incompletes. When instructors go to the “Manage Incompletes” page for in-progress tests or quizzes, they can now just accept the default setting for submitting current score instead of submitting zeros, which was the previous default.
Course sharing. Instructors now have the ability to send a copy of a course to another instructor. When instructors share a course, the instructor they shared the course with has FULL access to the course and any changes they make are reflected in the other account. Sending a copy will allow instructors to send a copy of a course so that instructors can make any changes they want without it affecting other courses.
Enhanced Editor. An additional “options” fields for multiple choice questions is now available, so that instructors can more easily add superscripts/subscripts, etc. to answer choices.
