Hello (I am trying to help an instructor)!

How do I print solutions for Grader Project Practice and Grader Project Assessments, so I can assist my students when they ask questions? 

 

Also, how do students print their submission results with deductions?

 

Thanks so much!

To get to the Samples:

 

Choose Content/Add Content from Library option.

On left under the Course Content:

Navigate into textbook, then the Application folder, then Chapter, and finally Chapter Resources. This folder contains all of the Instructor resources for the chapter.

In the resources folder you will find a Grader Project Resources folder. Inside the folder will be an Instructions file for each project as well as a perfect submission file.

Hi,

Two Options for Student Assistance:

  • From the MyITLab Educator View: Course Content > Select Content Series > Select Application > Select Chapter > Select Resources > Select Folder [Application][Chapter] Grader Project Resources > Select the documents labelled "SAMPLE." These are completed MyITLab Grader Projects.
  • From Educator or Student View, we recommend using the MARKED-UP REPORT and/or the LIVE COMMENTS REPORT: http://www.myitlabcommunity.com/training-tips-guidance/just-the-faqs/just-the-faqs-what-is-the-new-live-comments-report/ 

If you'd like to print a graded MyITLab Grader project that shows results of grading analysis, please use the Marked-Up Report… there's a print icon in the UPPER RIGHT of the window.

Thanks!

One thing that I would recommend is that every instructor should actually do the grader assignment themselves.

 

A couple of thoughts:

  • Then you will actually be able to give students a "heads-up" if there is something that may cause them problems
  • It should only take you between 10 and 20 minutes to actually do it
  • Don't worry if you don't get 100%, remember you are looking for process, not a grade. 
  • If you cannot devote enough time to do them all, at least do a one or two for each application
  • Remember that there is not just one way to accomplish the result.  
  • Students should be encouraged to figure it out them. 
  • We are trying to create the "critical thinking skill" not the press this button skill
  • If students get something wrong on the grader assignment, they should be encouraged to research it, figure it out, fix it and resubmit. 
  • If you have questions about using the grader projects with your own students, please consider registering for one of the scheduled webex sessions on the topic. On http://www.myitlab.com  go to tours and training tab,  read over the descriptions of the sessions and pick one that covers your topic and suits your time schedule.   You will be greeting by an eager and friendly faculty advisor that can listen to your question and provide an appropriate answer.    Session participants are limited to 6, but many times you may be the only instructor that registers and attends.   You may have a private session with one of our great faculty advisors!

In addition to taking all the grader exams myself to aid in answering questions I have taken the examples and made them available as PDFs for the students to see. This answers many of their questions if they know how the finished product should look. I also allow them multiple submissions for each exam.

Are you concerned that the students will simply copy the file information and paste it into a new blank document and save it, upload the new file when they log in under their account?  

I want to display the Grader project examples for my students, but I want to make set the file to preview, only.  Is there a way to do this in myitlab?

Thanks W. Mumpower Rader

We have actually started posting the samples in a pdf format.

If you are worried about the students copying and pasting from the PDF, you can lock it down if you have Acrobat Professional. That is what I do with the examples that our students get. You can even make it so they cannot print the document.

Students who copy and paste content and then submit the grader (with copied content) will automatically be flagged as an integrity violation. We too post the KEYS as PDFs. 

Hope this helps.
