Resources for this Scope

Previous: Initial Diagnostic

 

We have several collections of resources for your students available through EdReady, beyond NROC’s own Developmental Math content. These additional resource collections come from the Hippocampus library and include Why U, the Art of Problem Solving, STEMbites, the Phoenix College Collection, additional items from Khan Academy, and our own NROC Algebra 1 materials. We are also now including some relevant PhET Sims, unit-level virtual tutors, and other elements of the NROC Developmental Math program. (More details about these collections can be found here.)

How do I add resources?

While resources are available as options in EdReady, there is no global setting to enable and disable resources across Scopes. You must enable additional resources at the individual scope-level under a Scope's "Resources" tab.  

Once you've determined which resources you want to make available to your students, those resources settings will be copied if you clone an existing Scope.

Unlike other Scopes settings, you may enable and disable resources for a Scope at any time, even if student data has been captured and other Scope features have been locked down.


To access the Resources settings for a Scope, click on the Resources tab. The page is separated into the following areas:
1. Default Resource Collection
2. Included/ Excluded Collections
3. Topic-level Resource Defaults

 

Resources_Image_1.png1. Default Resource Collection
The default resource is the item that will open automatically for students when they click the ‘View Resources’ button. If other resources are available for that topic, students can choose to switch to them, but most students will study the default collection item first.

Here you can indicate the collection that should be the default item students will see across the board when using this assessment. (You can set Topic-specific defaults below.) Only included collections will be available for selection.

To change the default resource collection, choose the new default in the Default resource collection for this assessment dropdown menu, then click the Set as default button.

 

2. Included/ Excluded Collections
Here you can indicate the resource collections that your students should have access to study as a part of this scope's study path. If a collection is included, then students will see that collection’s resources anywhere items are available for the topics in this scope. Conversely, an excluded collection will be completely unavailable for your students to study.

Only the ‘EdReady core’ collection (NROC Developmental Math) is included by default and all other collections are excluded.

To remove a collection from the excluded list, select the collection from the Excluded resourcecollections dropdown menu & click the Remove From Excluded button. You will now see this collection in the ‘Included resource collections’ dropdown.

To remove a collection from the included list, select the collection from the Included resource collections dropdown menu & click the Add to Excluded button. You will now see this collection in the ‘Excluded resource collections’ dropdown.

 

3. Topic-level Resource Defaults
While an item from the ‘Default Resource Collection’ will be pulled up as the initial resource for your students, you can specify an alternate default on a Topic-specific basis.

To change/ view the default Topic collection, select the Unit and Topic you want to edit.

A list of all the resources available for this topic will display below, with the current default resource’s title in bold & with the radio button in front of it selected.

To change the default resource, simply select the radio button for the item you want to be default for this topic. A message will appear to the right: The default resource has been successfully changed.

After making a change to a Topic’s default, the Topic name will have a “*” at the end of the name to indicate it has been updated.

If you want to reset all the Topic-level changes you have made, click the Restore global default resource collection to all topics button.

 

You can see details about the resource collections available in EdReady in this help center article: The EdReady Resource Library.
