  22. 22. Professors did not seem to feel the need to include feedback comments on assignments even though grading was subjective. Grades would not be posted until weeks later. Professors in about a quarter of my classes have never returned grades or comments on any of my papers, even after email requests. There is no way to improve on my writing skills if I get absolutely no feedback It's hard to gauge where you are in class with just points and no weighing system in place to actually reflect the syllabus grading. Viewing results on exams/quizzes are easy as long as the TAs or the professors submit the scores. I like how the professor could provide us with grading rubric so the students can know where the grades are coming from. For one Chemistry lab course in particular, it is impossible for me to view my score on lab reports done in pairs when my partner is the one who submitted the files through their TritonEd account. This is caused by instructors only accepting one report per pair. In any case, I always have to ask my partner to show me how we did on the report via their account since I cannot view the score on my own account. I've seen instructors that use GradeScope instead of Ted so show scores on group assignments. The one thing not to use Ted for is checking grades - grades on Ted as seen by students almost never match the professor's view It is hard and confusing to see the scores and instructor remarks on the assignments. Sometimes, I don't even know if there are scores and remarks on the assignments. Survey Results: What Students Said

  24. 24. TritonEd is easily accessible on laptops but is not very mobile device friendly. I can't open documents that professors post on TritonEd using my phone and I can't easily check my grades using TritonEd either. Sometimes, some information is cut-off when I'm using my mobile devices (iPhone and iPad). When looking at grades on a mobile device (including comments on essays submitted in TurnItIn), the grades and comments are cut off from the screen and are not completely viewable even when you try to scroll down. Loading up TED on the phone is not terrible, but it just is not as user-friendly. I have to keep minimizing and maximizing the web page in order to reach certain buttons. It's almost like the page was not designed for mobile devices. Sometimes, my mobile device would not load the pdf files after I had clicked on them multiple times, even if I had WiFi. I also wish it were a bit faster and easier to navigate, and I can't access some of the tools on my computer such as "My grades" for all classes. Syllabus that's in .doc form or .pdf gets downloaded without being able to see them in browser on mobile. Trying to view grades on TritonEd mobile site is absolutely horrendous. Thank goodness the app works okay otherwise I'd be limited to only being able to check TritonEd when I'm using my laptop The website is just so gross and clunky. Most materials on TritonEd is only accessible for downloading on a laptop. You cannot open those files on your phone. When you open TritonEd on phone, you can't open documents like articles or the syllabus that are posted. For some articles, it shows only the first page. Survey Results: What Students Said
  25. 25. Survey Results: What Students Said The date/times of the final exams are never placed on TritonEd . Instead, I must login to WebReg to find out that part of the course. TritonEd is annoying to navigate, so instructors rely on e-mail to communicate important messages such as final exam information. Almost every professor and/or TAs have never used TED for posting the final exam. Either they stay it in class, their website, send out an email, and/or use Webreg. I think it will be better if there's anything like calendar on the main page that indicates when and where the midterms or finals are. It is inconvenient…when I have multiple finals and have to click on every course site to find out the location. I want something I can check those stuff at once. TritonEd does not have a tab that shows this information, although it would be very helpful. It is up the professor to make an announcement on TritonEd to update students on any changes in exam location and time. However, since there is no notification system that alerts students without signing on, some students may miss the announcement. This usually was not posted on TritonEd. And if it was, it was hard to find. I wish there was a way to see important dates right after logging in (maybe like a calendar) Many professors put the date of the midterm on one tiny spot on the syllabus, and then post that syllabus in some other folder - at the very least let the syllabus be its own tab. Preferably, important information like this would be written down in the announcements, or somehow pinned to be the first announcement. I typically check the exam date on Webreg since Ted is not useful for checking the exam date. Always need to go to syllabus. And when I go to syllabus, I have to open it in a new tab. Too long for info I need really fast.
  26. 26. THEME 3: Instructor use of TritonEd for more than information broadcasting causes student anxiety and expense Activity Gap Score Mean SAT Mean IMP Valid Cases Using online textbooks supplements (WileyPLUS, Pearson MyLab, WebAssign, Redshelf) 0.64 3.41 4.05 1,053 Taking Exams 0.64 3.82 4.46 929 Setting up an account for online textbook supplements (WileyPLUS, Pearson MyLab, WebAssign, Redshelf) 0.64 3.57 4.21 1,109 Taking Quizzes 0.62 3.88 4.50 1,220
  27. 27. WebAssign is complete bullshit. It takes an additional hour to figure out the way WebAssign wants us to format the answer. Like you can get an answer exactly right, but WebAssign requires students to format it a certain way. Figuring that out on average takes another hour. The quizzes are hard to use because sometimes your answer won't get saved or depending on browser size or type the timer/overview covers questions as you scroll. Sometimes TritonEd quits unexpectedly and does not save my answers for the quizzes. it is also difficult to review the quizzes I've taken to see my score and learn from the mistakes I made. I have only had to deal with RedShelf and the system they used was bad. They automatically were going to charge my class $100 each for the online textbook unless we opted out online. It is so expensive. considering that there is no alternative we kinda have to be forced to spend $120 to turn in homework. which sucks when you’re poor and tuition is already killing you. Occasionally, when creating an account, the website will tell me that an account is already registered with my email address even though I would never have created one. This is probably a result of UCSD reusing school email addresses for multiple students. TritonEd is useful for accessing online textbook supplements (I've used WebAssign for Math), and it helps with preparing for exams and quizzes because I can review class materials and lectures. Quiz interface is horrible. I cannot go back when I put a wrong answer as a mistake, and I have to go all the way to the right when the answer is on the left. Triton Ed has never helped me with anything related to online material/homework. I don't think I have ever witnessed anything related to WebAssign, Wiley Plus. In my three years I have never taken an exam or a quiz on TritonEd. I don't think you have the faculty bought on it. Survey Results: What Students Said
  28. 28. BONUS THEME: Poor group features in TritonEd drive students to outside services, causes communication challenges Activity Gap Score Mean SAT Mean IMP Valid Cases Resolving group conflicts 0.59 3.52 4.10 637 Conducting project work 0.56 3.57 4.13 746 Meeting with my project group online 0.56 3.47 4.03 690 Forming my project group 0.55 3.59 4.14 796 Producing project documents 0.54 3.60 4.14 733 Sharing my contact information with other group members 0.54 3.64 4.18 796 Presenting group project work 0.52 3.66 4.18 704
  29. 29. In regards to group projects, I only used Ted to contact my group members initially. I would use Ted to send out an email to all of my group members to ask them to give me their preferred method(s) of contact. Then, my group and I would use those preferred method(s) of contact and Google Suites to conduct work for the remainder of the project. Usually use other modes of communication; Piazza, email, Facebook. Usually conducted group work on google docs and would only use Ted to submit the project. If you think I'd actually use ted to produce project documents you're out of your freaking mind. I can barely find my grades on ted and turn things in. Stop trying to do a million different things poorly, and instead focus on doing a few things really well. Group assignments are such terrifying prospects, not only does it put you in a vulnerable position but also requires you to work out with each other the confusing time slots where you can actually meet. I would never consider using TED over Google Drive for group work. The tools are clunky and slow to figure out. I've had to do one group project where the only place to form groups was on TED. I was fucked over and hung out to dry by several potential groups. It's a really shitty way to form groups and easily leaves people out and is so disconnected from everything. All done through email or google docs/sheets which are less cumbersome, easier to use, and are less likely to experience problems/downtime. It's not easy to do so and requires manually finding the person's ucsd email which isn't always checked by the student. It is not simple to do, trying to figure out the medium of communication and collect information, often within the last few minutes of a class. Some people might be left out for a week because contact information was not recorded well or at all. Survey Results: What Students Said

  33. 33. I can't convey how terrible I think the Blackboard gradebook function is. It simply doesn't navigate correctly. You can't search on all assignments/grades for a given student -- or if you do, it doesn't display them correctly. You can't manipulate grades in there. I mean, it's a freaking simple spreadsheet, and they can't even design that well. Entering individual grades is fine, but trying to download the grade book, edit, and then re-upload seems to always lead to grades getting rearranged. I only tried displaying grades to student one quarter. I found it a bit confusing to track various types of grades (e.g. points for participation, grades for assignments, etc.) and I went back to keeping track in an Excel sheet. For me the grade center is the most important part of TritonEd but it feels like it's 25 years old. It's slow to respond even on a high end computer, weird things happen when students submitted their homework more than once, going to the next line is tedious. still haven't figured out how to create letter grades and export them to eGrades, doing it manually. I should be able to upload to eGrades readily, whereas I ended up having to enter the eGrades manually. One bad thing about the TritonEd gradebook is that it has as a default a column displayed to the students that keeps track of the total point score over all assignments/exams, which may not correspond to how the total grade will be calculated after weighting, etc. So the students get a mistaken impression of how they are doing in the course. I would rather just have a blank spreadsheet where students can see only the column headings and their own row of data. Biggest pain in the ass Survey Results: What Instructors Said
  34. 34. Survey Results: What Instructors Said What I see and what the students see are not always the same. This has been verified with them sending screenshots and/or showing me on their own tablets/laptops. Used TurnItIn to give feedback on papers but students couldn't see the comments I had entered in. had to pdf the page and then email it to them I only tried displaying grades to student one quarter. I found it a bit confusing to track various types of grades (e.g. points for participation, grades for assignments, etc.) and I went back to keeping track in an Excel sheet. I simply do not know if it's possible to do the calculation in TritonEd. I have been using excel and then manually enter the final grades. I manage all of my grade assignments in excel because I have more flexibility with calculations. The scrolling interface is impossible. Finding a student in particular is a daunting task of filtering or lucky scrolling. The TED "spreadsheet" is far too limited to calculate grades the way I need. I have to use an external spreadsheet and upload the grades. This is a lot of work, and sometimes leads to mistakes. The last time I tried this the procedure didn't work at all. eGrades refused to process the file I downloaded from TritonED. The total score column confuses them. (I know I can remove it, I just usually forget to.) Tritoned seems to create its own columns with total scores or weighted scores that I DO NOT want visible but make it impossible to remove. And properly scaled columns rarely calculate properly. Downloading the files to do some calculations and re-uploading is annoying. having more ability to manipulate the cells within TritonEd would be helpful

  36. 36. As with entering grades, viewing student submissions requires drilling down through too many menus. To make matters worse, Ted makes me repeat this process for each student. There isn't an obvious place to go to see submissions and then sometimes they show up strange if they didn't follow directions about file formats. The TurnItIn feedback function is a good idea that looks and works like it was executed by 2nd year CS majors. In a hurry. They earn a B- ...good idea, executed badly. Available tools for providing feedback on written assignments is greatly impoverished compared to what is afforded by using pen and paper. If it even has capacities to grade code, it's definitely not worth the 6000 button clicks to find these tools. My approach is always to use TritonED for the bare minimum, get assignments out of there, and grade with real, helpful tools. I haven't yet had students submit assignments online. I suppose that would save paper and avoid possibility of lost hardcopy assignments, but I haven't done so because it is so hard on the human eye to grade scanned paper assignments.” Can't write comments for the students -- see GradeScope, which does this pretty well. TurnItIn is an important tool, and in some ways it's good, and in some ways it's badly designed. It loses progress and you can't tell what students can see. Clunky. We use Gradescope so that we can provide written comments to students. TED is very restrictive in submission and feedback. Survey Results: What Instructors Said
  37. 37. Survey Results: What Instructors Said Problems arise from columns not being visible (left-right scrolling ability seems to rarely show up). Except for auto-graded quizzes, why would you use TritonED? It's bloated, slow, and annoying. I grade using Gradescope. I have not done anything more than the quizzes. When I used TritionEd for grading online submissions it took my TAs triple the time to grade. Hard to download code, no code comparison possible but should be done automatically. I don't know how to [grade multimedia assignments] on TritonEd, and I am pretty well versed in the system. There doesn't appear to be an intuitive method for student submission or grading of multimedia assignments Clicking on 'View Attempt' fails to load a significant amount of time. Getting to students actual submissions is super clunky and opaque. The grading especially for Tas of the large courses is a bit difficult in terms of moving quickly between and amongst students' exams. TurnItIn does not allow for group grading of projects. Creates a ton of work to have to manual figure this out and messes up the whole grade center b/c you have columns that work for some people (the person who submitted the project) and not others (anyone else in their group).

  39. 39. I have not been able to conduct quizzes on TritonEd to a satisfactory level so I have stopped trying. I might like to conduct exams if there were built-in electronic features to reduce cheating -- and if it were possible to import a Word file into the quiz function so it wasn't so damned tedious to set up a quiz. Just getting the formatting to be uniform is a challenge. Hard to make sure all the settings that I want are activated I've been told not to do [use the TritonEd exam feature] because the WiFi infrastructure at UCSD can not handle it. I did try it last quarter, and had students not come to the lecture hall to complete it, but this led to other problems like cheating. It is so complex, it needs to be streamlined. Clunky, slow, unintuitive. Did I say slow? So slow. Ponderous. Circa 1990 user interface design. Quizzes are a pain to set up and hard to debug in Blackboard. Too many features, opaque descriptions of the settings, no sandbox for testing, and no confirmation of settings. Also, hard to copy paste from one to the other. [Quiz builder] crashes, unclear instructions, cumbersome to work with. The [question item] pool feature is unclear. I find it hard to decide how to organize files into folders and to organize the folders in a way that is obvious to the student where they can find things. I like TritonEd overall and it lets me do what I need to do, but I don't find it very intuitive. Survey Results: What Instructors Said
  40. 40. As a piece of software, my perspective on Blackboard (as a student and TA) is that while it does, in fact, have some useful features, it's also bloated, clunky, frustrating, and something that I would burn in effigy for cathartic release, given a physical representation and the opportunity to do so. I am not computer-savvy, and I used TritonEd for the first time this winter, only to take advantage of Turnitin.com. I found setting THAT up absolutely baffling and found the entire website incomprehensible. TritonEd/TED requires such a long unintuitive learning curve. It does not facilitate any reasonable discussion platform (for that we go to Piazza) and the only reason I use TritonEd is so that my TAs can upload content and it manages grades moderately well. Setting up quizzes with flexible grading options on TritonEd is painful and not usually successful. Not useful as a training tool for students. In the past quarter, TritonED has made it very difficult to move content from an old course site to the new one--even if the class is the same. This meant that I had to manually upload all of the old files- -a process that took nearly 3 hours--instead of simply cloning the old course. If this cloning feature is still available, it needs to be marked much more clearly. If it is not, it needs to come back. After so many years, the Blackboard based system should be easier to use. I have started using some advanced features that I like, but they are really difficult to figure out, and the navigation has to be re-learned every year. I have my own class website that works a lot better/needs my needs a lot better than TritonEd. The buttons and contents were hidden. It took me about 15 minutes in search of the functionality I needed to change the front page of TritonEd.
