Adjusting Student Difficulty, Option #2 for Elementary

posted Nov 11, 2011, 8:42 AM by Bryan Tayman
If you choose to restrict a student to a higher or lower grade level for content, it will apply to all content (reading, math, and science). I explained to SI that often students may need scaffolding for one, but not all content areas. In the meantime, the workaround is to create specific assignments where the teacher chooses content from the grade level appropriate for specific students. I know this means that at times the teacher will need to create two or more separate assignments.
Another item in this area is the hiding of the grade level (that blue info link on the right side of the student's assignment page. I shared that even when we check for it to be hidden, it sometimes still shows up. They are considering having it off by default which seems to make sense.
