Grade Exams Faster and Easier with Gradescope

Wed, 2019-04-10 16:00
Bostock 039
West Campus

Learn how other instructors at Duke use Gradescope to dramatically reduce the pain and time associated with grading their exams and homework while providing better and faster feedback to their students.

You will learn how to:

  • Grade your existing exams and homework on Gradescope,
  • Grade groups of answers at once,
  • Make rubric changes as you grade - changes apply to previously graded work to maintain consistency,
  • Write each comment only once - apply previously used comments with a click,
  • Create better rubrics to increase student learning,
  • Use 'assignment analytics' to gain insight into student learning.

We're looking forward to seeing you!
Duke Learning Innovation and the Gradescope team

Note: lunch will be provided for those able to join us in Bostock 039, but this workshop can also be attended virtually through Zoom. When you register, let us know how you plan to attend.

VFF: A Cornucopia of Interactive Graphics with Shiny and D3

Fri, 2019-04-05 16:00
LSRC D106
While still a developing field, interactive statistical graphics have been a topic of interest since the late 1960s. Recent development of the R and JavaScript frameworks Shiny and D3 has made it much more accesible for statisticians and practitioners to have interactivity in their graphics, specifically for the web. While much of the work in interactive statistical graphics has focused on the general interactivity tasks of linking plots, brushing, labeling, and scaling, other work seeks to solve more specific data problems through the use of interactive statistical web graphics. In this talk I present three examples of the latter goal, as well as a brief overview of the steps needed to build a basic application that makes use of both Shiny and D3.
