What’s the best thing about online math assignments? That’s a tough question to answer, but one advantage we love is the instant grading. Lesson plans driven by data have always been the goal, and now you can make those decisions by easily accessing your students’ performance data!
Tip: Did you know that every wrong answer choice in TenMarks is tied to a reason why the student chose that answer? We have craftily created these “distractors” so you not only see students’ scores, but you also gain “Assignment Insights” that tell you the top 3 reasons why your class is making mistakes. This insight is a great tool to help you decide what content to spiral back in via “mini-math”, “warm-ups”, or any other method you use! (We know your class time is precious and you can’t afford to re-teach an entire topic!)
Log into your teacher account at www.tenmarks.com/login/user.
Select your class from the drop-down menu in the upper, right corner of the page to specify which Class Assignments you would like to view.
1. VIEW OPTIONS
By default, assignments will be organized by due date from newest to oldest. You can adjust how assignments are presented using the following filter and order options.
Sort Filter (a)
You can organize your students’ assignments by due date, performance, or status. (Note that an assignment can have one of four statuses: New, In Progress, Closed, or Past Due.)
Sort Order (b)
You can also choose whether you want to see newest (Descending) or oldest (Ascending) assignments listed first.
2. PERFORMANCE COLORING
The color bar on each assignment tile is color coded to give you a quick understanding of how your students have performed on an assignment. (See the Key at the top of the page for color information.)
- A solid green, yellow, or red color (c) indicates all students that were assigned the assignment have completed it.
- If the color bar is grey (d) it means none of your students have completed the assignment.
3. DUE DATE
Lists the date (either hard or soft) that the assignment is due. A soft due date allows students to turn an assignment in after the stated due date has passed. A hard due date does not.
4. ASSIGNMENT ACTIONS
You can quickly delete, reassign, or accept recommendations from the assignment tile. When you click on the assignment actions icon, a drop-down menu appears. From here you can:
- Delete Assignment – Delete the assignment for all or some of your students.
- Reassign – Reassign the assignment to your students.
- Accept Recommendations (PREMIUM) – Accept the personalized recommendations for each student who completed the assignment. (For more information on Personal Work, see page. )
5. ASSIGNMENT STATUS
When you hover over the assignment tile (see Figure 2) the status of the assignment will appear. An assignment can have one of four statuses: New, In Progress, Closed, or Past Due.
6. EDIT DUE DATE
When you hover over an assignment tile (see Figure 2) a pencil icon will appear. You can click on this icon to change the due date for an assignment.
VIEW ASSIGNMENT DETAILS
To get more information on how students performed on an assignment, double click on the assignment name in the tile.
This will open up the Assignment Details Page (see Figure 5).
The Assignment Details Page gives you an overview of how students performed on an assignment. Here, you can explore high-level details about the assignment including the amount of time students spent completing the assignment, number of hints and videos used, and detailed information on individual student performance.
View and Edit Assignment Information
The top box (s) will give you high-level details about your assignment including status, due date (and whether it is a hard or soft due date), number of questions (and whether they are the same questions), and number of question types assigned.
You can edit the assignment information by clicking the Assignment Actions (t) button. Here you can adjust the due date, view the different question types, reassign the assignment, accept personal work recommendations, and delete the assignment.
Summary Information (u)
The top of the page gives high-level information on the assignment, including:
- FINISHED – Number of students who have completed the assignment.
- AVERAGE SCORE – Average score students received on the assignment.
- AVERAGE TIME SPENT – Average time students spent completing the assignment.
- SUPPORT USE – Types of support students used when working on the assignment.
Premium Metrics (v)
The Premium Metrics box gives you insight into the effect Amplifiers had on your students’ scores. When students score less than 70% on an assignment, they are automatically assigned Amplifiers. After students complete the Amplifiers they are given Do-Over assignments. This box shows you how many students completed both the Do-Overs and the Amplifiers, and the average score increase between the students’ initial tries and their Do-Over scores.
Top 3 Common Mistakes (w)
Top 3 Common Mistakes tells you the most common mistakes that students made on the assignment. This is designed to help you identify trends in your classroom and also help with grouping. You can click the person icon next to each common mistake to see the names of the students who made the mistake.
One-Click Differentiation (x)
For Premium users, One-Click Differentiation is a quick way for you to give differentiated personal assignments to students in your classroom based on how they performed on the assignment.
Assignment Details (y)
This section gives you more detail about how individual students performed on the assignment. Information for each student will include the status of the assignment, the student’s score, number of hints used, and time spent.
Student Details (z)
Some students will have more than one score. This is because they scored below 70% and were given an Amplifier and Do-Over assignment. The first score is the student’s original. The second is his or her Do-Over score. The third score is how many questions he or she got correct in the Amplifier.
