The Assessment/Survey tab is included in your teacher dashboard because we make use of it for the CS Principles course. Since that course moves towards a multiple choice style AP test we include many more multiple-choice style assessments throughout that course. In CS Discoveries we are encouraging assessment using end of chapter and end of unit projects (we provide rubrics for each), activity guides, and daily progress in Code Studio levels. Many teachers, for example, are using the Teacher Panel to look at their students’ work in the last level of a lesson and assess whether students have understood the new programming constructs they learned that day. We’re very interested in your assessment needs, however, so please let us know whether you find these tools sufficient.
We’ve logged the lines of code issue with engineering. In the meantime I would recommend the strategy I mentioned above. Quickly scanning through where students’ work is at the end of a lesson using the Teacher Panel can give you a sense of how students are actually able to use the tools they’re learning. I know that having just a quick line count makes it really easy to scan and see if someone literally didn’t even write any code because they were stuck. Keep letting us know how we can make your life easier and if you have other ideas for ways you’d like to check in on student progress.
We’ve heard about this issue before and are planning work to address it. Web Lab is our newest tool so we apologize that you’ll run into more bugs there but are very appreciative that you’re sharing them.
Hope that helps!
