Hi Joseph and Mary,
Yes thank you for pointing out the purpose of the Quiz Results block, as per political-correctness and how it should be used to not embarrass students who at the lower end of the test results. I seem to have forgotten that one.
I initially started using the block that way, but one fine day I decided to show all results, with an announcement that any student who "clawed" their way up the ranking and showed a "jump" up the ladder would get a Stamp on their Stamp collection. And I did reward the students who managed to claw their way up. Out of 10 lower rung scores, only three were clawers (is there such a word). The others had their claws retracted I think.
But it was too much work using Ms Excel to calculate the best jumpers and there weren't many of them. At the same time, I'd send the lower end students encouraging messages like "keep working at it!", "don't give up", "you can do it" and the like.
But lately I've forgotten (horror of horrors) to do the counter-balancing and so due to my sins, I may have scarred some...hopefully not without redemption.
Thank you for your reminder of how to use this block with some sense of sensitivity and humanity. I'll remember this one.
