In Otus, teachers have the ability to track student participation. Each time a student participates in class, the data is timestamped and additional recognition points or comments may be added. Teachers also have the option to randomly select students by choosing the random student selector.
To track student participation, follow the directions below:
Step 1: From the Classes module, select Participation.
Here you will see a list of your students in the class. You can change the class in the upper-right corner of the screen.
If there isn't an entry for a student, that means they don't have any recorded participation.
Step 2: Select a student.
This will take you to a list of all participation for that student.
This is also where you will add participation for the student.
Step 3: Select Call On or Raised Hand.
Selecting either one of these will give you the option to leave a note with the participation record. Notes are optional.
Select Save when finished.
Step 4: You can edit the note or delete the participation by selecting the ellipsis to the right.
