Answer: What are the options for grade reporting? Are there various levels? Which levels remain most valuable for the online instructor in regard to student performance?
In regard to grade reporting, there is a student, teacher, course and program level of reporting. Aggregating data across these categories can help teachers and administrators see where teachers/courses are succeeding and/or failing, as well as how students are performing. The most valuable level for an online instructor is probably the teacher level of grade reporting. Often, instead of looking at student’s grades individually, teachers need to reflect on their grades as a whole in order to see if a lesson was successful or needs to be retooled.
