Turn It In -- Getting Credit for Your Successes


#1

Note

Previous iterations of this course required students to submit the URL of their posts to Sakai. This is no longer required, as the badge system now obviates that requirement. For the most part, whatever you put in Sakai will be ignored. An exception to this rule is if you have made changes to your work after the assignment has been entered into Sakai and you would like it to be re-graded. If that is the case, you should “resubmit” and put something like (“I fixed it”) in the field where you can “turn in” the assignment. That will alert your instructor to have another look.

What to do

If you are here to earn a grade for a course, you will likely be interested in seeing that you get academic credit for your accomplishments here. Here is what to do:

  1. Click “reply-as-linked-topic” on the the Challenge page not this one. (The reply-as-linked-topic link is sometimes hidden. If you don’t see it, move your mouse around and point to the message. It’ll appear over to the right under the links to pages that link to this one.)

  • Choose the category that has “completions” and your course name in it.
  • Choose a subject that is unique, relevant, and interesting.
  • Tag your post with the challenge’s unique tag.
  • see that the Continuing the discussion from [post-name](https://literatecomputing.com/postname/ID) header is included.

How will I know?

When you post with a message in a “completions” category with a challenge tag, you will receive a “bronze” badge indicating that you attempted a solution to the challenge. It is your responsibility to see that you choose your course’s “completions” category. When an instructor has “liked” your post, you will receive a “silver” badge, indicating that you have met the instructor’s minimum requirements. When you receive likes from other community members, you may earn a “gold” badge.

If you feel like sufficient time has passed that you should have received feedback from the instructor and have not, you should “flag” your post to call attention to it. That is the most efficient way to let the instructor know that your post has been overlooked.
