Section 4.1 The Instructor Interface

One of the primary goals of the Runestone Instructor Interface is to help you understand where your students are at, and to help you to prepare and make the best use of classtime. We set out to create an interface where you could see at a glance which concepts your students clearly “got” and which concepts they were struggling with so that you can spend your valuable class time on the topics that were confusing rather than boring them by covering material they clearly understand. To really be effective with this strategy you should use reading assignments as described in Section 5.1.

As an instructor, you can access a variety of instructor features. To get to the instructors page follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you are logged in to a course for which you are an instructor. If necessary, click on the person icon at top right and select Change Course to get to a course that you are instructor for, or logout and login with a different account.

  2. Click on the person icon on the top right of the window and select Instructor's Page

    You will see the instructor page as shown below. You may be on a different tab that what is shown below.
