I can't seem to find the discussion thread for the question that showed up in my e-mail, but my answer would be to create sections within her history class.  Then she only needs to work on one page /site and all the kids will be separated by section.  It's the easiest way.

Example:  I had three sections of psychology.  I made one site, had three sections, and the kids are then beautifully separated in terms of handing things in and discussion boards, etc.  

Any questions please let me know

I just sent a message to you all and was thinking I was leaving a comment on the wall. My apologies.  I just wanted your advice on how I should advise my teacher.  She is creating a 5th Grade 1 semester history course that will begin in January.  There are 4 separate classes, 70 students, all doing the same course.  She can't decide which would be the better route.  She will not be needing the classes to cross collaborate. And she wants to utilize the drop box  in an organized fashion.  She is concerned that using one class will clutter the drop box up too much.

Route 1:  Make 1 Master history course. As she builds the content copy it over to the 4 real history classes.  (5ahistory, 5bhistory, 5chistory, 5dhistory)  Can you copy whole pages from one course to the next or just content blocks?

Route 2:  Make 1 history course and for the different assignments make multiple copies?  For example:  5awk1assign, 5bwk1assign, 5cwk1assign, 5dwk1assign - This way she could see the items that each class drops in so that she can manage it easily.

Last question:  When you archive a class I know that the projects and group discussions are removed.  Will it also remove all the items that were turned into the drop box but keep the assignments?

Thanks for your feedback!

Vidya, Thanks for posting here. We got your support request & are able to duplicate what you're talking about. I'm looking into a fix as we speak I will respond to you via our support system as soon as I know more.

Posting this here in the hope that either Bryan or Marcos or anybody who uses Haiku can help me. This is URGENT!

My students are taking their final exam tomorrow and some of them are trying to view past quizzes as part of their review, but are unable to view any of the quizzes I've given this semester. All quizzes are now officially closed, so they should be able to go in and view them, so we can't tell if it's an issue with Haiku or something else.

If they or I are missing any step in the process we would love to know. Any assistance to resolve this issue at the earliest would have my eternal gratitude as well.

Hi Vidya, sounds like you did find a valid work-around. If an Exam is only "assigned" to one section, it will only show up in the gradebook for that one section. The way you set things up initially is the best way to do things, though. Unfortunately, as a teacher, you can't currently see each separate due date in the listing of Exams. You will always be able to see the separate due dates (to put your mind at ease) if you Edit an Exam. We recognize that the way we currently display dates can lead to confusion & I've created a new "suggestion" in our feedback system so that you can keep tabs on our progress as we find a better way to display this information: http://feedback.haikuls.com/pages/72-haiku-lms/suggestions/316097

Thanks for the question & we hope you continue to enjoy Haiku LMS!

So I got around my issue below my creating another Exam for the second section, copying the questions over from the first one and then publishing it with the desired date/time setting. Interestingly enough, in the grade book, it shows up as only one column entry for each section (I was afraid I was going to have two grade book entries, one for each section).

Is there a better/more efficient way to do this?
Comment by Vidya A on September 13, 2009 at 1:14pm
Trying to figure out how to deploy the same quiz to two different sections in a class on two different dates. Although Settings allows me to specify different dates/starting times for each section, it only displays the later date on the assigned page. Not sure how to get around that.

Is there any documentation on how the gradebook performs its calculations for the published subtotal values to display the percentage? Especially if categories are weighted?
