Codio Launches “Global Assessments Library” of Editable, Auto-Graded Assessment Questions

Aug 27, 2019 11:21:40 AM

Codio’s Global Assessments Library is live for all users! 

Our Global Assessments Library contains auto-graded assessment questions covering a wide range of topics, difficulty levels, and assessment types—and it’s available for all instructors to make use of.

The library is populated with hundreds of assessments, and we’re always adding more. Currently, assessments are available in: 

  • Java
  • C / C++
  • Python
  • JavaScript

Editable assessments

Each assessment in Codio’s Global Assessments Library is completely editable, so you can add your own twist to it. 

To edit or modify an assessment so that it aligns with your course context, simply disconnect the assessment question from the global library and modify it as you’d like. You can then add your version of the question to your organization’s assessment library.

What is Codio?

Instant feedback for students; No manual grading for teachers

Since all assessments in the global library are auto-graded, you’ll regain countless hours that would have been spent manually grading—while students will benefit from the immediate feedback that auto-grading enables. 

Additionally, all assessments contain example solutions and explanations of answers for students. Some also include notes for teachers to better convey the assessment’s intended learning objective. 

Navigating and using Codio’s Global Assessments Library

To access the global library, navigate to the assessments drop-down in the Guides Editor, click on “Assessment Library,” and select “Codio Main” as the “Library Name.” 

All assessments are tagged, so you can easily sort and filter based on your course requirements.

Here is an example of the tags associated with an assessment:

Assessments in Codio’s global library can be filtered by:

  • Programming language
  • Assessment type
  • Category (topic-level)
  • Content (subtopic-level)
  • Learning Objective (in SWABT form: “students will be able to…)
  • Bloom’s Taxonomy level

Get up and running faster with ready-to-go content in Codio

Codio's Global Assessments Library enables teachers to get up and running even more quickly—without having to port as much existing content.

Complimenting existing curricular resources, the global library is a great resource for creating graded homework assignments and projects that correspond with our existing interactive instructional materials. 

This is just the beginning for our assessments library!

In Fall 2019 we'll be releasing a way to insert an assessment query, where instead of selecting a specific assessment, you'll be able to create filters based on your course requirements and Codio will select a resulting assessment at random for each student. 

Additionally, we're slated to introduce pattern-based assessments in 2020. This feature will enable you to build or select a template where the specific questions will be randomly generated to ensure a diversity of assessments being delivered to your class.
