Instructurecon 2014 brought educators together from around the world. This year’s conference was held in The Canyons Resort, Park City, Utah. The first day was quite eventful as we had snow (in June) which made getting around a little tricky. Instructure announced the following new features:
Quizzes has an updated design that combines the quiz overview and quiz statistics pages. Additionally, this change improves the loading speed within quizzes and enhances the details within quiz statistics. Quiz Statistics is available in beta state now and can be turned on in your course under Settings > Feature Options.
Quiz statistics for True/False and Multiple Choice quiz questions include an item discrimination index, which attempts to look at a spread of scores and reflect differences in student achievement.
Instructors who have enabled the Learning Mastery Gradebook have the option to display outcome results to their students. This view gives students another tool to improve their behavioral learning especially in outcomes where students are average or below mastery.
Student Group Leader
As part of creating a new Group Set, instructors can choose to set a student group leader
The Polls for Canvas app is the easy way for instructors to request student opinion in the classroom and collect responses with ease—without using any additional tools. To take a poll, students only need to download the Polls for Canvas app on their smartphone devices.
