Assignments, Quizzes, and Writing Prompts – Oh My!

So now that your teachers are comfortable searching for videos and downloading them onto their computers or streaming them live for their students what is next?


Why incorporating them into the The Builders course!

The Assignment Builder, Quiz Builder and Writing Prompt Builder (The Builders) give teachers the ability to tie images, audio files, videos, clips, and all of the other good stuff within the site together in one place and assign them to students. 

And here’s the really neat part – students can access the assignments in school and/or at home!  Homework made cool.

    Thanks for the great information!

    I love Assignment Builder! The neat thing about is, after your students take a quiz, it will grade it. Then, it will e-mail the score to you. How cool is that?

    Thanks for the powerpoint on hyoerlink and embedding – I am a firm believer in not recreating the wheel and implementation is helping out with that – besides if implementaion shows you how, it must work!

    I am definetly going to use the training module on the builders as I am trying to become more proficient in using them in order to train the staff better – thanks for heads up!

    I have used Quia in the past for creating quizzes that students take on-line. It also grades the quizzes and reports the results in several different formats. I will have to compare Quia with Assessment Builder.

    The assessment builder will be a great tool for the teachers in our school. They will be thrilled that the quizzes are graded.

    Thank you so much for al the useful information. I currently use ClassMarker.com and can’t wait to start using Quiz Builder. I’m also always looking for writting prompts for students to use online.
