PlayPosit: Monitoring / Grading Student Submissions

Updated on

After careful consideration and evaluation of our educational technology tools, Canvas @ Yale will no longer have access to PlayPosit at the end of Spring 2024.

Faculty and students will have access and can continue using PlayPosit through the end of the Spring 2024 term (May 31st), but PlayPosit will no longer be available for access or use starting Summer 2024. 

When PlayPosit activities are graded and tied to a Canvas Assignment, the students' grades will automatically pass from PlayPosit to the Canvas Grades area immediately upon submission.  

  1. To view student submissions, the instructor can go to the Canvas Assignment / Page / Module Item where the PlayPosit bulb is located and click on it. When the activity loads, click the "Monitor" button.
  1. You will then be taken to PlayPosit where you will see general submission information of students who have completed the bulb in the spreadsheet view
  2. To view a specific student's submission, click on the Learner's Name.
    1. Some question types in PlayPosit may require you to manually grade student submissions.
  3. If you make updates to grades in PlayPosit, you can use the "Sync Grades" button to push your updated grades into the Canvas Grades area.
