The scoring system of the ‘game’ activities changes depending on the activity. Please note that scores are recorded at the end of each game play. You must play the game to completion in order to earn, and have recorded, your points. Also, in the case of students, you may have to play the games multiple times in order to accumulate enough points to reach the assignment goal that has been set by your teacher.
Each game consists of 1 or 2 rounds with up to 10 questions per round. The player is awarded 2 points per correct answer in the first round. If all answers are correct in the first round, the game ends and the score is recorded and added to their total for that video. If an answer is incorrect, the correct answer will be shown to the player, and the question will be asked again in a second round. Player is awarded 1 point per correct answer in the second round.
FILL IN THE BLANK
Each game consists of 1 or 2 rounds with up to 10 questions per round. Player has 3 chances per question, receiving 10 points each if answered correctly right away, 8 points if answered correctly on second chance, and 6 points if on third chance. Hints are given after each try to help player see where their mistakes are: wrong letters are highlighted in red, and wrong accents are highlighted orange. If all answers are correct in the first round, the game ends and the score is recorded and added to their total for that video. Incorrect answers are moved to a second round, where player is awarded 6 points per answer if correct on first chance, 4 points if on second, and 2 points if on third (and final) chance. 1 point is deducted for using the “slow” play button.
SCRIBE (website only)
Each game consists of multiple sets, with each set containing multiple captions. Scribe has the most complex scoring as you receive both Stars and a Score. Please be aware, Scribe is still in development, and the scoring may change in the near future.
Scribe looks at a variety of factors in determining your star scores with maximum is three stars.
how many times you replay video before you start a word
how many times you replay a video after you start a word
letters/corrections/accents you get "for free" by clicking in the feedback area
words you "insert" out of order vs. in order
use of "Slow" play
*fairly heavily weighted because it makes transcribing much easier.
Each of these factors are weighted differently and we are still adjusting the formula.
The score is a percentage of letters that were not given away for free by clicking in the feedback area.
*Teachers: For information on how to create assignments or check your class Gradebook, see the sections “Assign videos to students” and “Monitor student progress” in the For Teachers FAQ.
COMPREHENSION (website only)
Scoring for comprehension is based on each individual quiz and is not cumulative.
Scores are based on the percentage answered correctly out of the total number of questions. (For students, the score may also display the passing grade required out of the total number of questions, in order to compare with individual outcomes.)
This activity is based on completion. As the player inputs correct answers, a progress bar on the left side of the screen will begin to fill. Incorrect answers, however, will reverse that process and make it take a little longer to reach the end. A timer limits the amount of time the player can spend on each try. When a student finishes the vocabulary review, a checkmark will appear next to that student’s name in the teacher’s Gradebook. Teachers have the ability to decide how many times the students need to complete the review (up to 5 times per assignment). In this case, a number will appear next to the student’s name in the teacher’s Gradebook, indicating how many times they completed the review.
