What is Engage & Learn?
ALL In Learning's Engage & Learn feature can turn Chromebooks, laptops, tablets, phones, and other web-enabled devices into convenient, paperless, interactive, instructional, and assessment devices, allowing immediate feedback to teachers and students.
You can use great-looking questions that you create in ALL In Learning, import from PDF PowerPoint, or Word, or choose from standards-aligned item banks in your ALL In Learning account. Or, more conveniently, you can create a quick key and just use student devices to display a simple electronic bubble sheet to go along with printed assessments you already have.
This feature supports multiple choice questions and short answer questions.
Steps to use Engage & Learn
- Teacher prints Student QR Code Sheets
In the Classes tab of your ALL In Learning account, select your students, click "Print," and choose "Engage & Learn QR Codes." Give these sheets to your students. They can use the same sheet all year. (Alternatively, you can use the QR code on student bubble sheets. The advantage of using the Engage & Learn QR Codes sheet is that they provide other information to guide the student to successfully log in.)
- Teacher Activates the Lesson
In the Lessons/Assessments tab of your ALL In Learning account, find your lesson and click Activate>"Use with Engage & Learn," and choose your class.
(If you haven't yet created a lesson, see this article for a lesson with on-screen questions or this article for a quick key to go with a printed test you already have.)
- Teacher Chooses Activation Options
Next, you'll be prompted to choose what options you'd like to use, like whether you want the questions downloaded to the device or will use a hard copy test, if you want them to see their results or not, if you want them to see which questions they missed, if you want them to see what the correct answer was, etc.
- Students go to "students.allinlearning.com" and Log In
Students will open a browser on their device and go to students.aillinlearning.com, where they'll be prompted to scan their QR code or enter the Engage & Learn ID from their QR Code Sheet (see step 2 above). The first time, they'll be prompted to create a passcode (which teachers can reset if it's forgotten in the Classes tab by selecting the student and clicking "Reset Passcode").
- Students Select and Complete Their Test
Next, they'll be presented with a list of the lessons that are active for them. They'll tap the one they are supposed to use, and are off and running. When they are finished, on the final screen, they'll click "Score."
- Teacher Monitors Progress
You will be able to see the results in real time as students finish their activities. If you leave the page, you can get back to it by following step 3 (above) again. If it's a learning activity, you could leave it open indefinitely, and the students can go back in and engage it repeatedly. You will not see any reports until you get into the grading screen (whether you stay in it after activating or if you pause it and come back to it) and see all the students' names turn green.
- Teacher Clicks "End Session"
Once all student scores are green and you've done any rubric grading or checked on their constructed responses, click "End Session" to close out the activity and see the detailed reports show up in the Reports tab!
