This week's topic of the week is "Using Technology to Provide Clear Learning Goals and Scales (Rubrics)". I was scheduled to meet with the middle school teachers about it today, but mother nature had other plans and gave us a two hour late arrival. So, instead of jamming it into an already compressed day, I decided to get my screencast on it together sooner rather than later so that the middle school teachers would have the time to watch it and then schedule an appointment with me when I'm back here on Thursday for office hours should they want more assistance. This particular screencast is a bit long, but it's a lot of information to cover.
I had a teacher ask me if there was a way to hide or remove students who are no longer in your class. The answer is maybe. It depends on if they are officially dropped from your class and appearing as red in your roster and gradebook. If not, then no, you cannot remove them until they have been unenrolled from the class. If the student is showing up as red in your gradebook though, you can hide them so you don't have to worry about them. Here is a screenshot to help you do it:
