MyOMLab: Instructor Gradebook Updates
We are pleased to announce that, over the winter break the MyOMLab Gradebook has improved navigation among frequently-used Gradebook features, making student performance insights more readily-accessible and providing even more flexibility in grading and assignment settings.
The Landing Page: This has moved offline items to the main toolbar(1) and now offers a direct link to the Reporting Dashboard, improving the visibility of advanced reporting capabilities.(2) The landing page also includes a performance graph(1) that highlights student and class performance. A new dynamic search box(2) allows instructors to easily find a specific student’s results. The new landing page enables instructors to quickly see class performance by grade categories. The landing page also includes the most recent student login information(3).
Contacting Students with Specific Criteria: Searching for and emailing students based on specific criteria has been streamlined with “Email Selected” and “Export Selected” buttons now on the search results page. Search results can also be accessed from the Gradebook landing page by clicking the bar in the chart that represents the score range of interest–e.g., 40-50%.
Filtering of Change Weights: The change weights page includes new filtering functionality by assignments and chapters makes selecting individual assignments or chapters easier.
Add/Edit Student ID: The menu item for Add/Edit Student ID was removed from the toolbar header and added as an option in the “More Tools” dropdown menu. Also, the new Edit Roster menu has been updated to present Add/Edit and Upload Student IDs.
