A step is one item on a checksheet. 

There are 4 different types of steps:

  1. Learn
  2. Apply
  3. Review
  4. Control

This article explains how to use "Apply". 

  1. From within your checksheet, click "add new step". Four boxes will drop down: "Learn", "Apply", "Review" and "Control". 

2. Click "Apply". These steps are designed to test the student's understanding and ability to apply the material you have taught. The steps are either marked instantly by the system (such as multiple choice, sequence and categorize steps) or are sent to you or one of your course instructors for marking. 

  • Multiple Choice: This is a standard multiple choice question. You can specify one or multiple correct answers from the list. Each time the multiple choice question is displayed to the student, the items are randomised so that they cannot just answer in a rote manner. Once answered, the system automatically marks the question. If the student is correct, they are told so and they can proceed on the course. If they are incorrect the system will give them feedback and then show the question again in a new random order.
  • Sequence Items: This allows you to make a list of items that need to be put into the correct order by the student to be correct. Each time the sequence items question is displayed to the student, the items are randomised so that they can not just answer in a rote manner. Once answered, the system automatically marks the question. If the student is correct, they are told so and they can proceed on the course. If they are incorrect the system will give them feedback and then show the list of items again in a new random order.
  • Categorize Items: This asks the student to allocate a previous "Make a List" question into its correct categories by the student. Once completed, the answer is sent to you or one of your Course Instructors to be marked as correct or incorrect. In the meantime the student is allowed to progress on their course. If the answer is marked incorrect by the Course Instructor, then the student is returned to this step and must categorize the list again, until passed. 
  • Write a response: This asks the student to write a free form response to a question. Once answered by the student, the question is sent to you or one of your Course Instructors to be marked as correct or incorrect. In the mean time the student is allowed to progress on the course. If the answer is marked incorrect by the Course Instructor then the student is returned to this step and must write a new answer before they are allowed to proceed again on the course.
  • You can also use the Write a Response step to assign instructions to a student where you want them to carry out a practical assignment and report back to you what they did. Instead of writing a question, type in the assignment instructions you want them to carry out.
  • Upload a file: This asks the student to upload a file as a response to a question or assignment. Once uploaded by the student, the file is sent to you or one of your Course Instructors to be marked as correct or incorrect. In the mean time the student is allowed to progress on the course. If the file is marked incorrect by the Course Instructor then the student is returned to this step and must upload a new file before they are allowed to proceed again on the course.
  • Make a List: This asks the student to just make a list of items in whatever order the student wants. You can specify a minimum number of items for the student to list out. Once done, the list is sent to you or your Course Instructor for marking and the student is allowed to proceed on the course in the mean time. If the instructor marks the list as incorrect, the student must come back to this step and change the list somehow (either adding items or reording items) before they can continue on the course.
  • Order a List: This asks the student to change the order of a previously entered "Make a List" question into whatever order the student wants. Once done, the ordered list is sent to you or your Course Instructor for marking and the student is allowed to proceed on the course in the mean time. If the instructor marks the list as incorrect, the student must come back to this step and change the list order before they can continue on the course.
