Did you know that X2 ASPEN (SIS) can allow you to have "recurring" grades such as class participation? My students earn a daily 5 point grade and I can set up the assignments now and have less daily hassle later.
Here is the class participation rubric I got from two fellowveteran teachers. I made slight changes, but the idea is the same. Thank you for sharing with me.
The active learner part, I think, is the most difficult, even for me. At my graduate class we put into our Classroom Expectations that we would not be off task with our iPads, iPhones, etc.
