Creating a checklist

I am looking for a way to embed a checklist into my PowerSchool Learning course. The idea being that students would be able to check off items that are in a "to do" list.  I have found some things that can be embeded and kids can check items off but once they navigate away from the Page it will not keep any checkmarks that they have made. Any ideas?

Re: Creating a checklist

Hello @gylepat!

 

Thank you for posting this question in our Community.

 

Since class pages are shared with all of your students, we can understand the challenge of embedding a to-do list that is individualized.

 

Here are some options that we have seen our teachers use. We hope one will work for you:

 

  • One idea is to use our poll feature under activities > polls. This can be used as a list of items to complete. You can allow for selection of multiple answers. Though students can only submit the poll/record their responses once, they can see the full list when the poll is added to a content block on a page in the class.

 

  • Another idea is to embed an external tool such as a Google form. You mentioned that you have tried external tools without success. With a Google form students would need to submit also, but you can adjust the settings to allow multiple submissions.


Those are a couple of items to try.  We would love to hear from other members if they have used tools they would like to share as well.

 

Thanks again for a great post!

Re: Creating a checklist

@VickiE Thanks for the Poll idea. But the issue is a student can only submit the entry once, right? Is there a setting that allows students to update their items depending on how much they were able to complete?

 

I like the simplicity of it, though. Quick to implement and use. Very user-friendly.

 

Thanks.

Re: Creating a checklist

Hello @skrishna,

 

We're happy to hear you found the poll feature simple to use.  The benefit of using this option would be that students can see the full list of to-dos directly on the page, but you are right, that students may only submit a response once with this tool.  We appreciate your feedback and we look forward to hearing from others on this topic.

 

Thank you for your post.
