Submit a Check for Understanding (Student View)

Once a Check for Understanding (CFU) has been created and the web link has been distributed to students, they may access it anonymously and enter their responses. Students should not share any identifying information in their answers. Please note this feature is intended as a formative method of assessment to help drive instruction and is not meant as a means for collecting grades for individual students. CFUs can be administered throughout the course of a unit, used as an "Exit Slip", or given as a unit pre-test to gauge students' prior knowledge.

Completing and Submitting a Check for Understanding (Student View)

The top of the Check for Understanding page contains information about the CFU, including the title, which is displayed at the top of the screen.

The Due Date, Number of Questions, and Completion Status of the CFU are listed in boxes beneath the title.

The Assessment Incomplete text means that the CFU has not been submitted yet.

Once a CFU has been completed and is ready for submission, students click the Submit Assessment button at the bottom of the page.

After submitting the assessment, a message appears at the top of the page stating that the response has been successfully submitted and the assessment is complete. The CFU can then be closed. You may examine the students' responses on the View Results page (see View Results support guide).

If you have elected for correct answers to be shown post-submission (for multiple choice items only), the correct response to each question will be displayed so students can check their work. A message will display below each question indicating if the correct or incorrect answer choice was selected. The correct answer choices will have check marks beside them.
