THE CUSTOMER’S NEED
"I wrote a problem set that I want to have converted to a digital and autograded format."
For years, Paul, an accounting instructor at Bronx Community College, had been assigning his students a 40-page paper-based continuing case problem. Paul required his students to complete the massive document with pen or pencil, while he and his teaching assistants had to grade each student’s work manually as well.
Digital Conversions of Instructor Assessments
Wiley worked closely with Paul to convert his paper-based problem to digital. We programmed the problem algorithmically so that no two students would be given the same sets of values. This helped circumvent a long-standing issue of answer-sharing amongst Paul’s students. We also mapped the problem steps to Bronx’s institutional objectives, which allowed Paul to extract customized reports for his students and adjust his teaching accordingly. Finally, the autograded nature of Wiley’s digital homework saved Paul and his teaching assistants hundreds of hours of manual grading!
