MobLab Gradebook

Track student scores and participation using the MobLab Gradebook.

Set Up Your Gradebook

When you first enter your gradebook, select to Auto-create a column for each playlist, which will calculate the participation record for students for each playlist played so far. Alternatively, create a custom gradebook column by pressing the Grey + button on the far-right. You can always edit, update, or delete your gradebook columns.

Please review our recommendations on grading MobLab games and surveys.


Grade Type

Participation: By default a participation score is added to your MobLab Gradebook. This is a 0% -100%. For example, if a student has completed 3/5 games and surveys run, the student would have 60% participation score. Continue to add activates to this column and sync with LMS to reflect the most accurate score.

Borda Points: In some cases, i.e. to incentivize game play or offer extra credit, it is helpful to normalize student game scores. The borda points will rank students from highest to lowest based on their scores in the game. Students that are tied earn the highest rate. Ex. If students in the game earn 22, 26, 22, and 20 points, these students will get, 3, 4, 3, and 1 borda points.

Payoff: Payoff is a great measure for accuracy in surveys/quizzes. By default survey questions are worth 10 points. This can be edited per question in the instructor console. Payoff points per game differs. Review how we calculate payoff in the student instructions of each game.
