  1. Set response bars with 0% back to size zero

    Since recently, bars showing the percentage of responses all start with a certain size, even though they represent 0%. This is very misleading and makes it harder for instructors to see if there were actually wrong answers at the end of a question delivery.

  2. Allow students to see the number of points of a question

    Currently, the students see the total number of points only after the session has been closed. It would be helpful, if the students saw the number of points of each question, while it is displayed. This mainly refers to the response type "self paced" (and similar).

  5. Gradebook update - freeze title pane as you scroll

    Is it possible to freeze the title pane as you scroll down through the gradebook so that you can view the assignment title as you scroll down into the subsequent pages where it is no longer visible at the top. This is essential for classes with larger enrolments.

  6. The ability to "change categories" of learning catalytics sessions in MyMathLab.com

    Right now the default setting for learning catalytics sessions is "homework" when it appears in the mymathlab.com gradebook with no way to change it. I have my gradebook set up so that homework, tests, quizzes, attendance and "other projects" are categorized separately and grade weighted. I was trying to get LC to show up under "projects".

    Once a LC session is live it only shows up under "homework". You cannot change its category, and you cannot "omit" results from mymathlab.com gradebook if you decide not to include the grade in the score at that time (though you may change your…

  7. Allow for the managment of multiple sections within a single course

    I often teach 4-5 sections of the same course in a semester. I do not set up 5 different mastering courses. That's too much to keep track of. All of my sections get the same course ID, and within Mastering I place them into groups based on sections for easy gradebook filtering. This doesn't integrate with learning catalytics so well. Since all students are in the same masteringclass, they all get placed into the same learning catalytics course. The problem arises when it comes to grades.

    To simplify, say I have 2 sections. One meets monday/wednesday, the other meets tuesday/thursday.

    As the instructor you start the session, go the question and then need to deliver the question. Unfortunately all of those actions are visible to my students since a projector automatically mirrors all monitors. I have three potential work around 1) not use power point and instead try to use another presentation software, 2) have a second computer set up NOT attached to the display system, 3) just not have my answers indicated and then AFTER students have submitted their answers I then go back and indicate the correct answer. Option 3 is the easiest. It would however be nice…

  9. Make the grade book more user-friendly

    Make the grade book more user-friendly for students.
    Allow students to see an overall grade: percentage of questions answered correctly and percentage of questions answered. It is very confusing to students to see how their learning catalytics grade will be calculated.

  10. TRAT graphical results review

    The nice thing about a TRAT card is that it can be quickly scanned to see how many attempts were made on each question as well as what choices were selected. I am not seeing that when I review results from TRAT questions with multiple attempts. It may show correct or incorrect quickly, but you have to mouse over to see that they may have selected what choices were made. A quick graphical outcome that lists teams and responses selected and sequence they made would help facilitation after the TRAT

  11. Show the countdown timer in the instructor dashboard

    Show the countdown timer in the instructor dashboard. I have to go away from the podium computer in order to see the projected student display window if I want to see the timer.

  13. Please create a way to do post-test analysis such as searching ‘tags’ for specific learning outcomes, learning goals, and Bloom’s taxonomy,

    Please create a way to do post-test analysis such as searching results for question ‘tags’ for specific learning outcomes, learning goals, and Bloom’s taxonomy, etc. This would facilitate generating reports regarding student/class success at meeting specific learning outcomes.

  14. Including a Finished button on self paced assignments so that they could be used for in class quizzes and exams.

    I would like to use LC for in class quizzes and exams. Since I use it regularly in the classroom, students are familiar with using LC, and it has a rich question set, making it ideal for in class electronic testing. If I use a self-paced assignment as as in class quiz, I need some way for students to submit the quiz when they are done that will prevent them from continuing to work on the quiz. For example, in an hour long quiz some students will finish early. They could leave the classroom, log back into LC (if they…

  15. Allow bulk removal of questions from modules.

    I create a module by copying from a large bank of questions into the module for the day. I'd then like to go through that new module and remove, in bulk, all the questions I don't want to include. As it stands I now have to delete them one by one or bulk move them to a dummy "garbage" module for later deletion.

  17. Allow instructors to open several modules simultaneously

    If I want students to be able to do targeted preparation for a midterm or final exam, I might create 5 modules, each based on material from a single chapter. The student who wanted to concentrate on one chapter at a time could do the self-paced tests when they were studying.

  20. Use formatted image dimensions in student display window

    Images in the student display window should be displayed at same dimensions as they are formatted to be when the question is created (i.e., pixel width and height), and as they are displayed on the students' devices. Currently, the images in the student display window are much smaller. There is already a suggestion for image size when reviewing images, but this suggestion is for the image size in the question itself.
