EdgeEX — Free-response activities

Although the majority of activities in EdgeEX courses are system-scoreable, there are also some free-response, teacher-graded activities:

When a student submits any of these activity types, a Work to Grade alert displays on the Educator Launchpad.

Frequently asked questions

Which courses have free-response activities?
All Initial Credit and Honors courses have free-response activities. Most Credit Recovery courses do not; however, ELA courses do — albeit a smaller number than Initial Credit or Honors ELA courses.
How can I tell how many free-response activities are in a course?
You can view this information in the Catalog (Imagine Edgenuity Catalog, District Catalog, or School Catalog) by expanding the View Versions area at the bottom of each course description.
When does the academic integrity video display for students?
A short video about plagiarism displays for students before they begin their first written or uploaded free-response activity and will play when students launch any subsequent written/uploaded free-response activity if it has been at least 90 calendar days since they last viewed it. 

Academic integrity video

To support academic integrity, students will view a short video about plagiarism before they begin their first written or uploaded free-response activity. (The video will not play for speaking activities.) The plagiarism video will play when students launch any subsequent written/uploaded free-response activity if it has been at least 90 calendar days since they last viewed it. 

Short Writing

Short Writing activities ask students to write a few sentences or a few paragraphs in response to a specific prompt. In Short Writing activities, students have access to a rich-text toolbar they can use to add tables, math equations, and even images to their response.

Speaking Activity

These activities require students to record themselves speaking. For example, they might read a poem aloud, give an oral summary of something they have read, or make and support an argument.

Performance Task/Project

These activities require students to complete work offline (for example, make a multimedia presentation, solve and explain a series of related math problems). Students can upload their work from their device or the cloud, submit directly from Google Drive, or capture an image using their device camera or their computer’s webcam.

Essay

These activities guide students through the writing process of prewriting, drafting, and revising as they write narrative, argumentative/persuasive, or expository extended responses.
