Hi everyone,

 

I thought this forum would be a great place to share some of my blog articles to help educators get started with Microsoft Teams. If you are not aware, Microsoft Teams has an education specific version driven by Microsoft School Data Sync. Microsoft Class Teams have integrated OneNote Class Notebook, assignment submission and many more great features.

 

If you are using Microsoft Teams for education, you may find some of the posts below helpful getting started and making the most of it.

@Tony Phillips 

 I notice that I can assign different weights to the criteria. In your example, perhaps 60/40 instead of 50/50. When I do that, it does not appear that students see the differing weights. Is there a way to reveal those weights to the students so they understand one criteria is worth more than another?

@Terry_B19 

That is a good point. Students see the marks for a single piece of criteria but not the difference in weights between different criteria. As a workaround you could write what the distribution is in the marking criteria title (see below).critern.png

It's certainly a good shout for user voice: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/599053-schools-and-universities
