Using the Glossary Information about using a Glossary:

Students can add terms and definitions to the glossary
  • Terms can be hyperlinked to the definition (anywhere they appear)
  • Duplicate entries can be allowed (or not)
  • Entries can be "vetted" by you before posting (or not)
Ideas other than "typical" glossary entries:
  • Example: Provide each student with a famous scientist and ask, "How did this scientist's work influence others...lead to other discoveries.."
  • Consider a time line of events- students add the information
  • Have the students introduce themselves
  • Use the glossary for a short biography of authors you will be studying

Uploading Assignments

Can't upload a file that is open.

Consider the following for creating quizzes:

1. If you have Exam view, you can import questions

2. Use the GIFT format format
This is a very easy format to learn. In addition, you can then share the file with other teachers and build a bank of questions. NOTE: If using this format, you MUST save your file at TXT. If you save as Word first and then TXT, the format will not carry over.

A cow says {=Moo ~Bark ~Meow}.
A cat says {~Moo ~Bark =Meow}.
A dog says {~Moo =Bark ~Meow}.
Match the following colors with the correct toy. {
=Teddy Bear -> Brown
=Fire Truck -> Red
=Frog -> Green
=Truck -> Yellow}
You would find a barn on a farm. {T}
You would find racecars on a farm. {F}

3. Use the AIKEN format. Like the GIFT format, this is an easy format to learn for creating multiple choice questions.

The link will take you to the Help Files for each format to see exactly how to create quizzes.
