LSS tracks the amount of time users spend on a page and some of their activities.

Which students read the material?  How long?   

Learning should be evident by learners spending less time to accomplish a task.

Time spent reviewing can be correlated with outcomes.

A vital value of school is to credibly show that the student has learned.  Certificate, grade, and transcript are common.   

LSS also provides student work, feedback, revisions, and adaptation.

LSS provides some features to mitigate fraud i.e. detecting plagiarism.

This reflects on the student, teachers, and school.

Quality Check

There should be a way to ensure a minimal level of quality before a student can submit for grading:

  1. at least one hundred words
  2. no more than five errors as found by WA 
  3. use these five words <list>

A kind of pre-grading or quality assurance.  This would certainly conserve the teacher's and perhaps student's time.

  3. present and encourage best practices
  4. minimize teacher's time required to provide quality feedback

learner's can use the integrated LanguageTool to help them detect problems

Web tech enables many different testing strategies.  e.g.

  • several thrity second tests in class automatically graded with immediate feedback
  • pop tests during study

Multiple choice is limited but easy to automate and feedback is timely.  Short time frames with no notice and random order will mitigate cheating.

One aspect of class participation is calling on students to answer a question, solve a problem ...

The system could clearly present the student chosen.  It would be much better if perceived as fair. 

Ideally, at the end of the term all students will have had roughly equal opportunity to contribute before the whole class.

The teacher might assign a score to the student's participation.  The number of contributions and score could be displayed.
