Documentation:Digital Tattoo Student Orientation/Creating Assessments

From UBC Wiki

We use two different strategies for quizzes on the Digital Tattoo site. For the primary content, we use gravity forms (which is a WP plug-in). For the for the quizzes associated with badges, we use, Badge OS - and Learn-Dash (also a WP plug-in). We will address both below - with a focus on Gravity forms (g-forms) for now.

Gravity Forms

Writing good questions

One of the primary objectives for the Digital Tattoo web content is to provoke thinking and reflection on issues related to digital identity. The quizzes are used (with the Learning Wrapper) to provide additional context around the video that you have selected (curated) or created for the page content.

The quizzes should refer to and reflect the content of the video as a start. The questions you design should encourage people to approach them from a from a personal perspective, reflecting on their own decisions. Questions that support this approach are typically:

  • open-ended
  • scenario based
  • provoke reflection
  • reflect questions that students might ask

As an example, this page offers a good structure for some basic questions that are relevant to the content of the video on the page:

Writing good feedback

The purpose of feedback on each possible response is to help site visitors understand the impact of their choices on their digital identities. Feedback should, ideally, contain:

  • links to resources where appropriate
  • links to related content on the DT website
  • suggestions for follow up to learn more
  • focus on implications/impact on digital identity.

Keeping with the previous example, click through the quiz to get the feedback for each choice so you can see how it works. Come additional work could be done on the quiz to provide better feedback (see examples below): For example:

  • link to Creative Commons:
  • focus on digital identity - for example - in the photo example. If you aim to build your portfolio as a professional photographer - you may want to consider which images will best reflect the kind of work you want to attract. - Also address the impact of licensing and sharing work with CC license on your digital identity.

Creating/Embedding a Form

Step1: Create a self assessment quiz using a gravity form

  1. Go to Dashboard> Forms> Add New to create a new Gravity form
  2. Add Form Title and Description of the quiz you're creating. The title of the quiz will not apepar in the quiz itself but for organization purpose, add a title that is easy to find (such as: "Open Education Tutorial Quiz")

Step 2: Add a multiple choice question and add feedback for each choice

  1. Add a multiple choice: On the editing screen, click on the Radio Button located under standard field.
  2. Add a feedback for each multiple choice: click on the HTML located under standard field to create a feedback. On the HTML block, under the content field, type the feedback for one of the multiple question choice. After you typed the feedback, click on Advanced tab.
  3. Under Advanced tab, tick Enable Conditional Logic.
  4. Set up the conditional logic. For example, you can set up so that you can: "Show" this field if "All" of the following matches, and "Question Title(for ex: "Dr. Ada Olewe has decided to.." "is" "choice of the multiple choice(for ex: Use the article..)" .When you set up this conditional logic, only users who picked this choice within this question will be able to see this HTML Block/Feedback.
  5. Repeat step 2-4 for the rest of the multiple choice.

Step3: Embed the quiz

  1. Go to the tutorial page that you are planning to embed quiz (Note: when you edit Learning Wrapper, make sure you're editing in text mode. If you are in visual editor mode, switch to text mode and refresh the page)
  2. Go to "Add Form"
  3. Under "Select Form" drop down, select the quiz that you have created.
