Adding the Tutorial as a Graded Assignment
Optionally, faculty can add the tutorial as a graded assignment. Throughout the library tutorial, students are presented with a number of quiz questions that test a student's retention of course lessons and content. Upon completion of the tutorial, students who score 70% or higher on the quiz are given the opportunity to print out a certificate of completion which they can hand in to their instructors in order to receive credit. Additional there are options for the students to email their scores. By default, these scores are emailed to the GCC Library and can be reqested by faculty.
Sending Scores to Your EmailHowever, faculty can also have these scores emailed to their personal or GCC email accounts for quick and convenient grading. To do so, enter the email to which you would like these scores sent and copy the link that is generated below. You can then share this link with your students or add a link to it from your Canvas page.
Type in Your Email to Create a Link
When a student completes the tutorial and emails their score, you will then receive an email from Soft Chalk with the subject heading "Score: Research and Library Tutorial" that lists the student's name and their score.
