      Description

      With NCLB and so many standards floating around and being tracked, it would be a game changer at my school district if the questions in Moodle could be tagged according to different standards and then tracked in the quiz grade and gradebook.

      For example, a student might take a quiz that involves 2 different standards (read a line graph; read a bar graph). The questions will be randomly ordered, but after submitting her answers she and the teacher would be able to see he score broken down according to the two standards. Is she getting all the bar graphs right but getting all the line graphs wrong? Even for teachers in a non-standard based environment, this would still be a great tool to identify weaknesses.

      On a grand scale, it would be amazing if it could actually track across multiple quizzes. So after taking the 10 quizzes of the quarter, the reporting module would be able to say overall scores in different standards as well.

      Finally, being able to see class trends overall would be the nail in the coffin. What percentage of students are getting the line graph questions wrong?

      It think this has a lot of potential

          Not only does this have a lot of potential; but, due to Race to the Top and STEM initiatives seems necessary for K12. If there were some type of curriculum mapping or course planning module to go with the type of reporting you suggest in the grade book and quizzes, perhaps one could see how deep the standards are reinforced throughout the curriculum by department and teacher. I have developed a description of what a standards database should look like and view that as a first step before integration of any module/plugin to Moodle. I am working to populate that database with Oregon's standards, but could focus on another state if it were needed.

          It would also be nice to be able to assign particular standards to an entire assignment, regardless of type, and use the same report to merge all outcomes from the standards and objectives (across a course or site, or for a particular student) into one meaningful tool to manage instruction. I know this is starting to sound like the Outcomes feature, but the two are similar. The difference, as I see it, is that perhaps the standards tracking is a more detailed for quizzes (question by question). For other assignments, I think they would work the same way. Then you could analyze the quantifiable scores attained on each item (quiz question or other assignment) by standard.

          I need such a featur in the adult training. It is often neccessary to provide a a first quiz before the course starts to understand the level of the learner. If I test 4 or 5 different categories, the questions should better be mixed and not for each subject as a block.

          Questions have categories, why shouldnt we count by category?

          It would make it possibe to support wide scenarios similar to MBTI, HBDI and surveys.

          To understand the type of lerner, it would be possible for a trainer to implement things like ILS Lerning style Learning Styles Questionnaire without technical obstacles using moodle http://www.engr.ncsu.edu/learningstyles/ilsweb.html
