Self-Reported Grading

Students input their scores from multiple online programs to increase ownership and reduce load on teacher

Context

Students access multiple online programs through a single dashboard. The data from many of these programs, however, are not something that will autonomously sync into a single data portal. Instead of having the teacher looking through a variety of programs and matching student performance with each task, students simply take the score from their program and insert it into their data sheet. This allows the teacher to see students’ scores from a variety of programs in one single sheet. 

Internal assessments are also built into the new Gooru platform, which provides automated data reporting to the teacher and student. Concerns over cheating are minimized by a mastery-based system, since students can improve their score by showing mastery at a later date. Teacher conferencing reduces any concern over students incorrectly populating data, which is further minimized by the teacher comparing student populated data with unit assessment data to make sure they match. If they don’t, the teacher can work with the student to make sure they fix any mistakes made while populating data.
