PlayPosit Feature Highlight: Review Sheet

The main goal of an instructor is to help learners succeed. However, as a company that is made up mainly of former teachers, instructional designers, and curriculum experts, we know that it can often be a goal that is easier to set than to accomplish. So, even with the holiday season approaching, we're still working hard here at the PlayPosit office. We never lose sight of our goal to create the most powerful instructor and learner experience possible and we're happy to announce that with the inspiration of the quote below, we have released a sneaky little feature as of last Friday afternoon.
"All too often when students receive back a graded exam, they focus on a single feature - the score they earned. Although this focus on ‘the grade' is understandable, it can lead students to miss out on several learning opportunities that such an assessment can provide." (Ambrose, et al, 2010)
Go back and look at you're answers
Learners can now utilize the power of 'review sheet' to enhance their experience and increased the ease of navigation and review within a bulb. They have the ability to revisit their answers at any point while taking a bulb, or after they have completed the bulb, by opening the sidebar and selecting the Review tab. Note that an interaction will not show up in the Review tab until the player has reached the interaction time displayed in each row.

The icons next to each interaction help to inform the learner of the type of interaction (multiple choice, fill in the blank, etc.) and at what point in the bulb the interaction took place. The learner can then click on the interactions to see how they answered and to return to that point in the bulb. This feature does not give learners the ability to change an answer unless the instructor has allowed for multiple attempts on a single interaction. If a bulb contains multiple videos, then those individual video segments will also appear in the review sheet for easy navigation.

Additionally, the 'review sheet' function could be used after an instructor has copied a bulb from another instructor in order to identify where interactions are embedded and the type of interactions that they are. 

We hope that the 'review sheet' feature will enrich the experience of learners by empowering them further in their educational journey and leading to a greater sense of support from their instructors and educational environment.
