There are 4 modules in the Information Literacy tutorial. The entire tutorial is worth 120 points total. Module scores are automatically generated.
Default settings for Brightspace grading keep a running total of student grades and DO NOT count non-zero grades for students.
FYS Faculty and Instructors are encouraged to integrate the Information Literacy Tutorial into their grading schema. Your ITA can help you set up the grading in Brightspace and explain weighted options. Here are few ways to use the modules grading:
Allow the points scored on the modules to count toward the student’s grade in Brightspace. Course editors can use the "Subtotal" of the Information Literacy Tutorial category as the student grade. In Brightspace, login and view Grades > Enter Grades. The "Subtotal" column next the the last module (FA_ Module) is the sum of all modules for the students. Use this points schema or percentage as 10% of final grade.
Note: this subtotal does not count empty grades against the student.
Assign each of the 4 sections as separate homework assignments. Have students complete modules sequentially over time. Scores in Brightspace count as 5% of course grade. The remaining 5% of Information Literacy course grade is defined through custom, course specific information literacy assignment graded by FFYS Faculty member and/or writing instructor.
