Automatically assessed tasks with text response
We have activated a new type of self-assessable task called “Write your response”, meaning students will have to respond in natural language (in their own words) to the questions asked. Just like in the previous assessable tasks (now called “Underline your answers”), the teacher will have to choose which questions to ask the students from those proposed by Artificial Intelligence. Students will be able to move to the right in the form and back to the left to review their answers. Finally, they will press the “close and evaluate” button, and the task will be corrected, offering a score and feedback (if configured by the teacher).
Automatically assessed tasks now offer feedback
If the teacher selects the option “show score” (which is marked by default) when creating a self-assessable task, students, in addition to the score, will receive feedback on those incorrectly answered questions with information on what they have gotten wrong.
Add more questions to those suggested by the AI
Adding more questions to those suggested by Böxie is now possible. Once the task has been processed and with the questions suggested by Böxie at the forefront, the teacher can press the “Add Question” button to insert any additional questions and their respective answers that they deem appropriate.
Displaying Score and Feedback
The “Display Score” option that appears when selecting questions for automatically assessed tasks is now, by default, enabled. We have decided to do this because we believe it is important for the student to receive feedback on their work immediately after submission. Additionally, now the student also receives feedback on questions they have answered incorrectly, so this valuable information would not be shown if the “Display Score” option were disabled.
However, it is always possible to deactivate it before launching the task to prevent students from knowing their score immediately, for example, in an “assessment test” situation, when the teacher wishes to prevent students from sharing information that could help those who have not yet submitted the task.
The French Language Added to ClassInTheBox
We have just added the French language to the selectable languages both in the application interface and in the ability to upload and process videos with Artificial Intelligence to generate automatically assessed tasks and activate the video comprehension assistant.
Now all assignments are shared from the Assignment Manager.
We have simplified the way to share videos and assignments. Now, all assignments are managed through the “Task Manager” in the main menu, accessible by clicking on the profile picture.
You can convert any video into an assignment directly from the video itself or from the video card in “My Videos.” If you want to share the video as it is, without students having to edit their own copy, use the option in “My Videos.” But if you want students to work on the video as an assignment, you should do it through the “Assignment Manager.”
To make this process easier, when creating an assignment from “My Videos,” the system will automatically redirect you to the “Task Manager.”
Automatically Assessable Tasks Now Available
We have activated the automatically assessable questions. Now, when creating a task, you can choose between generic tasks (the ones we’ve always had) and the automatically assessable questions. These questions are generated by Böxie, our AI, based on a video. The teacher will select which questions the students should answer, and the students will have to find the answers in the video by moving the tags that appear when they open the activity, identifying the video segment containing each answer.
To make the task easier, the transcription of the segment will appear in the tag’s description. Students will be able to view the scores (if the teacher has selected “Show scores” just after closing the activity).
Embed Canva content
From today, it is possible to insert Canva content directly as a pop-up window. Canva.com is a very intuitive design tool that allows you to create any type of graphics, presentations, and even videos or animated images from pre-made templates. With the latest integration, we have made it possible for any public link to a design created in Canva to be embedded directly into the content of a pintagged video by using the “window mode” option found in the pin or tag menu wherever you want to place it. This way, when the pin is reached or the tag begins, whatever you have inserted in window mode will open in a large frame in the middle of your video, which will pause. It will also be possible to expand it to full screen using the options at the top of the frame
To extract the “public link” of any Canva design, simply click on Share > Create a public view link and copy the URL it generates. Keep in mind that if you delete the generated public link in the future, the window in window mode will provide a broken link as it won’t be able to find the original.
