To make best use of reviseOmatic, it is a good idea to create classes and enrol students.

Batches of questions can be assigned as homework and the students' progress tracked.

Questions grouped into teaching topics can be re-set under test conditions.

It is possible to delete all student answers for a topic for a whole class. This feature is used to give a "clean slate" before using reviseOmatic for a class test.

Teachers' tips for using reviseOmatic

The menu choices for teachers are as follows...

  1. View the gradebook for all the students in the class.
     
  2. Toggle the help system on or off. Help should be turned off during class tests but left active for homework and revision work. The screen background goes a dull red if help is turned off. Any student with a blue background is probably cheating in the test by using a second reviseOmatic account!
     
  3. Create a new class.When you create a class, you are automatically enrolled into it. Don't accidentally un-enrol yourself. If you do, you will no longer be able to manage that class.
     
  4. Rename a class. It's useful if you include your college as part of the class name. For example: eastnorfolk.ac.uk-L;ELS;A1
     
  5. Delete a class. The students are not deleted and nor are the students' answers. The students can be enroled into a different class.
     
  6. The questions are grouped into topics like Resistors, Capacitors and Diodes. These topics can be set as homework. The menu options allow you to view, add and remove topics. Once a topic has been added, the questions are highlighted with red exclamation marks indicating the topic is due to be completed by a deadline.
     
  7. Student enrolments into a class can be viewed, added or removed. There is a new option to enrol many students in one batch. Create a correctly formatted class list and everyone on the list will be enroled and issued with a password.
     
  8. Teachers can reset passwords and activate or deactivate accounts.
     
  9. There is an option to view all the images in reviseOmatic. You are free to re-use these in your own class hand-outs as long as it's not-for-profit.

Guidelines

Abuse

There have been very few problems. Mostly it's students giving themselves idiotic or offensive names. Only one email address has been banned for repeated attacks exploiting common coding weaknesses in on-line databases. It would have been more constructive to mail me about the coding errors instead of exploiting them. Any fool can break something. It takes brains and effort to create something new.
