How to Monitor Student Article Questions

Teachers may choose to monitor student completion of the assigned comprehension questions at the end of Articles within Publications. Article questions are designed to help students learn how to identify evidence from the reading to support a claim.*

Student responses are automatically graded by Studies Weekly Online and they receive immediate feedback. Students have unlimited chances to select the correct response, but they are incentivized with coins to correctly answer each question in as few attempts as possible.** 

Studies Weekly Online reports reflect this and provide teachers with student progress toward completion of the weekly article questions in multiple places.

Gradebook Statistics Grade Tab

The Gradebook provides a quick view of assigned items and the students assigned to the classroom. Use the dropdown boxes in the Gradebook to navigate to the publication, week, and item of your choice to view completion. 

For each student record a teacher will see one of the following for article questions: 

Not Started: The student has not started the item.

In Progress: The student has begun the item but has not completed it. 

Completed: The student completed the article questions. Scores are not shown for article questions since they must get the questions correct before moving on.

    Number of submissions: This will show the total number of attempts on an item. When you click a number you will see the date and time of each submission. When you click a submission you will see the student’s answer.
