Create Custom Lessons for Print or On-Screen Display

There are several ways to get questions and content into ALL In Learning, and we want it to be as easy for you as possible!

If you already have a copy of your test, you may be able to avoid re-creating it in ALL In Learning, while still using ALL In Learning to assess and grade!

 

Choose the easiest method based on the situation! 


For bubble sheet tests:
If you already have a hard copy, word doc, pdf, or another form of the test, you don't need to do the extra work of re-creating your test in ALL In Learning. Just create a quick assessment key to use with the materials you already have. You can attach the original PDF, Word, or another file (or simply email it out) so it can be opened or printed by anyone you share the key with. To see how easy it is to create a key, view this article.

If you do not already have a hard copy, word doc, PDF, or another form of the test to use, you can:


For clickers:
The easiest way to engage students and get data (and we mean the easiest in the world) is to use clickers with any content you have, or for spontaneous questions, without creating anything beforehand by clicking Launch Clickers On the Fly on your home tab. No need to create anything!

However, if your team wants aggregated PLC data on the assessment, you'll want to have an assessment prepared and shared so the data will aggregate back together as a team. Here are your options:

  • If you will be displaying questions one at a time for the class to answer (Teacher-Paced mode), you can use a hard copy or a digital file you already have, which you can display in their native program (Word, PDF, PowerPoint, or a web page, for example) on one part of your screen and create a quick assessment key to launch for the clickers on another area of your screen and click through them in parallel.  You can also use our pre-prepared content or author your own lessons in ALL in Learning using the steps at the bottom of this article.
  • If students will be using clickers at their own pace (Student-Paced mode), students will need a hard copy of the test they can go through. If you already have a hard copy, you only need to create a quick assessment key to launch in ALL In Learning. You can also create our own assessments or use our item banks and print the assessment.

    Note: Clickers are great for paperless testing, but are even better at mid-instruction, spontaneous engagement and instant feedback with no prep or grading! See this video for more on this easy, game-changing approach, which your students will love!

 

For the Student Portal (Engage & Learn):
If you already have a hard copy, word doc, PDF, or other forms of the test and you do not need the questions displayed on screen, you can use hard copies and use Engage & Learn as an "electronic bubble sheet" by selecting the "hard copy" option in the activation setting screen you'll see when activating the assessment.

If you do not already have a hard copy, word doc, PDF, or another form of the test to use, you can:

  2. Fill in the required information on the "Create New" screen and click "Next." This opens the content creator/editor.

  3. To insert questions, click the Insert menu, choose Question, and choose the type you want. Or from the "Assessment Key Summary," click the "Continue Adding Questions" button.

  4. A new slide thumbnail will be added on the left and the Edit Question window will be center screen, allowing you to enter the correct answer for the question and choose standards to attach.

  5. When finished, click "close" at the bottom of this window. This sets the underlying question structure for the key. If you will be printing or displaying the questions from ALL In Learning, now you can enter the displayed content on the slide that students should see.

  6. Click on the question slide thumbnail on the left to bring that slide into the main view, where you can add the text, colors, and graphics that you want using the familiar editing tools at the top of the screen and in the menus. You can also insert videos on slides using embed code from videos on YouTube, Google Drive, Vimeo, etc. 

  7. When finished, click save, and then click "Back to My Lessons/Assessments." Make sure the save indicator on the right goes from "saving..." to Last Saved: [time]" - if you have problems saving, see this article.
