Studywiz System Update
Published:April 29, 2010
This MLTI communication is intended for all Studywiz users. Please redistribute where appropriate.
The Studywiz collaboration system has recently been updates to address some issues with two activity types.
The Gallery activity has a new feature that shows the name of the user who added a file to a Gallery as well as the name of the uploaded file.
The Assessment activity has improved formatting for some question types. The interface for matching questions in an Assessment will be much clearer to the creator of the activity as well as to the end user. Currently, if "Display All Questions (Max 10 per page)" is selected, a matching question will clear previously answered questions (on the same page), unless it is answered first.
While this update to the Assessment activity addresses concerns, we suggest that users review all question answers before clicking the submit link. A question left unanswered should prompt a user to answer the unanswered question, before the Assessment can be submitted. If the creator includes multiple questions on a page, and one is a matching question, the creator should set the matching question as the first question. In situations where the creator may have multiple matching questions, the creator should remind students to answer the matching questions on the page first, before moving on to other question types.
We really appreciate your feedback and would like to hear about any issues you may be experiencing with Studywiz as a result of this update. Please email your comments and questions about Studywiz to email@example.com.
