26-06-2024 - Updated Test Results Dashboard

As a next step in our migration efforts we have deployed an updated version of the Test Results Dashboard for teachers.

This page allows you as teacher to view the results of a single test within your course. On this page you can see:

  • Aggregated statistics such as number students who started the test, number of students who finished the tests and the average score.

  • Aggregated results per item. For manual tests you can see the average score and coverage per exercise and for automated tests you can see the average score and coverage per subject.

  • List of students and their summarised test results, including a link to the full result for each of their attempts.

Within the update of the page we added/changed the following:

  • For each test type the page now contains 4 sections:

    • Header and navigation breadcrumbs

    • Summary with overal statistics, including a graph of the distribution of scores within your course

    • Aggregate results allowing you to sort on coverage and average score per item (e.g. sort on subject with lowest average score for automated tests to determine which subject is being answered incorrect the most)

    • Student results, allowing you to see a list of results and go to specific results

  • We now allow for filtering on multiple groups at the same time instead of just one group. This ensures that all analytics pages can now have multiple group filter present.

  • The live dashboard (mainly used during summative testing) is now moved to a separate page allowing a more dedicated interface (including a dedicated refresh button) for managing student's test sessions during a (summative) test. The way to get there is via a button at the same location as where the dropdown for switching was located.

  • Have a better outlined and structured UI, with foldable sections allowing you to easily focus on the most relevant part of the analytics.

04-06-2024 - Improving the Area Calculator painted area

Within Grasple student have access to multiple tables and tools helping them learn and answer statistics exercises. Within these helpers we also have an "Area Calculator" which is a visual representation of the Z-table.

Based on feedback of teachers we updated the logic behind the painted area to correspond better with the probability to a certain z value.

04-06-2024 - Organisation and Community Repository Labels

Within Grasple you use repositories to organise and collaborate on your learning materials. To facilitate collaboration and usage of materials within your organisation, across organisations or even across the platform (e.g. our curated content in the community repositories) both Organisation Repositories and Community Repositories are used.

To help users who are working on Organisation and Community Repositories, we have updated the UI in the following ways:

  • show whether a repository is an organisation repository and/or a community repository on the repository page itself

  • show whether a repository is an organisation repository and/or a community repository on the list of repositories

  • show a repository which is an organisation repository and also a personal repository (e.g. since you are an admin/editor within that repository) show them in both lists on the repositories overview page.

These updates should help creators and users of organisation and community repositories to make it easier to find and identify these repositories.

23-04-2024 - Filtering Learning Analytics on Multiple Groups

In the past days we updated most of the learning analytics pages with a new UI. Within this new UI also a new feature is introduced: filtering on multiple groups at the same time.

This allows you to select multiple groups at the same and view the subject progress/mastery or test exercise answers for the students in those groups. This feature is currently available on the following pages:

  • Course Dashboard Students

  • Course Dashboard Subjects

  • Course Dashboard Subject (the analytics for a specific subject)

  • Course Dashboard Subject Exercise (the analytics for a specific exercise within a specific subject)

  • Test Dashboard Exercise (the analytics for a specific exercise within a specific test)

In the coming weeks, this feature will also be added to the Test Dashboard Page allowing you to filter the test results and analytics for multiple groups at the same time.

23-04-2024 - UI Update for Unevaluated Test Answers page

As a next step in our migration efforts we have deployed an updated version of the Unevaluated Test Answers page.

Within Grasple there is an option to view the answers given in a test which could not be automatically graded (e.g. because the student used invalid Latex which could not be parsed). We updated the page which allows the teachers in a course to check which answers are unevaluated and manually grade them.

23-04-2024 - UI Update for Course Test Exercise Analytics page

As a next step in our migration efforts we have deployed an updated version of the Course Test Exercise Analytics page.

This page allows you get a more in depth insight into an exercise within a test, such that you can analyse why for example students are struggling with that specific exercise.

This new UI allows you to filter the given answers on multiple groups at the same time. In addition, the page is using newer accessibility guidelines and have both UX and performance improvements.

This new UI allows you to better sort data in the table, hide/show columns and filter on multiple groups at the same time. In addition, the page is using newer accessibility guidelines and have both UX and performance improvements.

22-04-2024 - UI Update for Course Students Upload page

As a next step in our migration efforts we have deployed an updated version of the Course Students Upload page.

This page allows you to upload large group of students and assign them directly to a course group as well. This page now has better validation of your uploaded CSV file, allowing you to quickly construct a valid CSV and add your students to the course.

22-04-2024 - UI Update for Course Dashboard (i.e. Monitor)

As a next step in our migration efforts we have deployed an updated version of the Course Dashboard, also known as "Monitor".

This page is the central hub of the teacher. Here you can monitor the course by viewing how each student is progressing, which other teachers and tutors are involved in your course and learning insights about each subject within your course. These pages are now updated to the new UI.

This new UI allows you to better sort data in the tables shown, hide/show columns and filter on multiple groups at the same time (for both students and subjects). In addition, the pages are using newer accessibility guidelines and have both UX and performance improvements.

12-03-2024 - Improved Accessibility for Math Answer Box

At Grasple we aim to make math and statistics accessible for all. Within this mission we also continuously improve the accessibility of our platform for anyone wanting to learn math and statistics.

Based on the WCAG guidelines and feedback from users we further improved the math answer box accessibility for screen readers and non-mouse users. This updates makes it both easier to navigate between the help buttons to insert math and receive more unambiguous explanations (via the screen reader) when using those buttons to enter the mathematical answer to a question.

Example on how keyboard navigation can be used to enter the "cos" function in the answer box

12-03-2024 - UI Update for Course Edit Page

As a next step in our migration efforts we have deployed an updated version of the Course Edit page. On this page you can change the name, code, and description of your course. The page is now updated with a new style more inline with the current course landing page, and we moved the settings to a separate block to make it easier to determine what students will see.

In addition, this page offers you a first change to experience our new html-content editor. The description field of the course is now editable via a completely redesigned editor which provides a better editing experience, especially related to tables and images. Feel free to try this editor out and provide us with any feedback you have.

19-02-2024 - UI Update for Start Test Session Page

As part of our ongoing migration efforts we have deployed an updated version of the 'Start test session' page. This update should provide a better experience by loading faster, and bringing the style of the page in line with the styling of the other pages involved in taking a test.

In addition, a new message block in the preview page of a test makes it more clear how the page looks inside your course, and provides a more convenient way to start a preview of a test session if the actual test is closed for students.

We hope you enjoy this update, if you have any feedback please let us know. If you want to know more about how tests work within the platform check out this collection of articles.
