Instructors want an efficient and effective way to record the mastery of learning outcomes in the classroom, in real time. But they also need to focus on the students, not on the task of collecting data. Data they gather should sync back to the course gradebook automatically.


User goals

As an instructor:

  • I can pick a course and create groups within the course that correspond to groupings in the physical classroom environment (tables, or the like)
  • I can choose outcomes from my course that apply to each group
  • I can assess students on the selected outcomes by swiping up on a student's picture for success or down for a miss
  • My data is synced back to Canvas and is reflected in the Student Mastery Gradebook view


The MagicMarker iOS app was released on 6/26/14. Reach the release notes here.
