The Spreadsheet Activity allows a sequence author to provide data in a spreadsheet format to Learners.
By default, the Spreadsheet tool allows each learner to save their own individual copy of the spreadsheet. The activity can be configured to allow Monitors to mark each Learners spreadsheet.
Double Clicking a Spreadsheet activity on the Sequence tab opens the Summary Screen for the Activity.
The contents displayed on the Spreadsheet summary screen depend on the options selected when the activity was authored. In the activity shown here, Learners can submit individual spreadsheets, and monitor marking has been enabled.
The Summary Screen shows the names of the Learners who have submitted a spreadsheet and provides an interface for monitors to assign marks to Learner contributions. It also displays which spreadsheets have or have not been marked.
In the Authoring Environment, Authors can use the Instructions Space to attach support files for a specific activity, or leave comments for othe Monitors about how a given activity should be run.
In Submit Files, the Author may suggest instructions for submitting files offline (e.g. a hand written or printed essay) if learners aqnd teachers are more comfortable with that format.
Clicking the Edit Activity button opens a new screen identical to the _'Basic'_tab in the authoring environment.
LAMS versions 2.1 and up support editing of Spreadsheet activities after one or more Learners have attempted the activity, but provide a notice warning monitors that changing the content will result in students receiving different information:
|Warning: One of more students have accessed this activity. Changing this content will result in students getting different information.|
Unlike Live Edit, this form of Editing can only modify the content of an activity, as opposed to the structure of a sequence.
