We’re delighted to announce a new feature of the Boundless Blog: a roundup of some of the best features we’ve released so far this season! If you want to learn more about getting started with Boundless, feel free to start with this guide to see what we have to offer you.
Without further ado… here’s what we’ve been working on so far in 2017!
Multiple attempts for quizzes
We now offer the ability for educators to set any number of graded attempts on a quiz! This means that a student can take a quiz multiple times, and the highest grade they receive out of the set number of attempts will be the grade that reports to the gradebook – whether they’re taking assignments on boundless.com or in their LMS.
Special trick: Set your graded attempts to zero if you want to use it as a practice quiz!
Educators can now set a time limit for students on their quizzes. They can choose whether or not to allow the students to pause the timer or not, as well as whether to display the time to the student or not.
Practice quiz toggling for the e-reader
Educators can now decide whether or not they would like students to access the built-in practice quizzes. This means that they have greater flexibility in how they would like to use the Boundless quizzes: as formative practice quizzes, or as summative graded quizzes!
Some of the smaller features we’ve released include book archiving (the ability to de-clutter your account by archiving books you’re no longer using), institutional signups (where an institution can pay on behalf of their students and have students bypass the signup experience entirely) and the ability to create more granular assignments (e.g. section and concept-level quizzes, rather than just chapter quizzes).
If you have any questions about the new features – or how to get Boundless in your classroom – you’re always welcome to reach out on our support channel!
