Purpose

Classworks gives you the ability to view student work in Applied Mathematics in real time. This gives you insight into student thinking and understanding in order to provide guidance and feedback to the student. Use this article to learn how to access the resources that will support you in planning, implementing, and grading Applied Mathematics, as well as how to review and grade student work.

Access Teacher Resources

We provide resources to support you in planning, implementing, and grading Applied Mathematics.

To access the Teacher Resources:

1) From the Classes Tab, click on the name of the class that contains the Applied Mathematics assignment.


2) Locate the Applied Mathematics assignment and click the blue Customize link beside the assignment name.

3) Expand the appropriate unit and click on the name of the activity.

4) Click on the Teacher Resource link.

Reviewing

Review student work in real-time to monitor progress and accuracy and to provide feedback

1) From the Classes Tab, click on the name of the class that contains the Applied Mathematics assignment.


2) Locate the Applied Mathematics assignment and click the blue Review/Grade link beside the assignment name.

3) 

A. Select the activity, status, and student from the drop down menus.

Note: The students listed in the drop down are driven by the activity and status selected.

Status options:

  • Ready for Review (default): This will display only the students that have at least one problem that is marked “I'm Finished”, but has not clicked “Turn In”. The checkered flag beside the problem name will indicate those that are ready for you to review.
  • Turned In: This will display only the students that have clicked the “Turn In” button for the activity selected. This indicates that any problems with the checkered flag icon have had the multiple choice graded (if applicable) and are ready for you to assign a Mathematical Thinking score, if desired. (see Grading section for more info) 
  • All: This will display all students without regard to problem statuses. This allows you to easily see which problems the student has finished, are still in progress, or has not started. 

B. Click on the different colored problem tabs to view student work. The status icons allow you to easily see at a glance the status of each problem.

Status icons:

  • No Icon: Student has not done any work. 
  • In Progress: Student has started working but is not finished. 
  • I'm Finished: Student has clicked the “I'm Finished” button to indicate that they are done working on the problem and are ready for you to review their work. 

 In Progress

I'm Finished

C. View which answer the student has selected (if applicable) and whether or not that is the correct answer.

D. View the work the student has done on the canvas. Click the 

icon to enlarge the canvas. To view the most current version of the canvas, refresh via the refresh icon or switch problem tabs back and forth.

E. Launch the Teacher Resources Page which includes:
Standards of Mathematical Practice, suggested manipulatives, common misconceptions, purpose setting statement, DOK level of each problem, the question stem and correct answer, talking points and possible responses. 

F. Listen to the student's audio recording (if applicable).

G. Launch a live version of the student module. You might do this if you want to:

  • View any notes and highlights the student may have added. 
  • Conference with the student about his/her work without the student seeing the correct answer choice. 
  • Provide immediate feedback by adding a note or writing on the student's canvas. 

Note: This functionality is no longer once the student clicks “Turn In”. In order for the student to see your additions, ask them to refresh their screen.


Grading

Classworks allows you to score students' mathematical thinking in addition to the auto-scored multiple choice answer.

A. Select the activity from the first drop down and the “Turned In” status in the second drop down. 

Note: The students listed in the drop down are driven by the activity and status selected. 

B. Select the colored tab for the problem you wish to grade. Remember that the checkered flag icon indicates which problems are ready to grade. 

C. Access the Teacher Resources to view common misconceptions, correct answers, and possible responses for the open-ended portions. 

D. Enter a score for the student's mathematical thinking. 

Printable Resources

Classworks also gives the teacher the ability to print materials for offline use. This gives the teacher more control on how they want to facilitate their class. 

A. Offline Activities: These allow a teacher to print all 4 levels of problems for students to use in an offline format. 

B. Rubrics: These rubrics give teachers access to grade level CCR Practices that they can use when grading. 

C. Teacher Resource Page: As discussed earlier, these include: Standards of Mathematical Practice, suggested manipulatives, common misconceptions, purpose setting statement, DOK level of each problem, the question stem and correct answer, talking points, and possible responses.
