InnerOrbit's drawing-response questions supports students in modeling their understanding of specific science concepts! Check out the FAQs below to learn more.

--> Can students use a stylus in the drawing questions?

Yes! Students click on the green "draw" button and are able to use any of the drawing features with a touch screen device and stylus. Otherwise, students can use the drawing features with their mouse or touchpad.

--> Can I create my own drawing questions?

Currently, the only way to create your own drawing-response questions is through the "Upload" feature. Check out this video on how to upload and tag your own NGSS assessments on InnerOrbit.

PRO TIP: In the "Upload" feature, you can insert an image for students to draw on, if you would like to insert a blank graph with pre-labeled x-axis and y-axis, for example!

--> Can students type in the drawing questions?

This is a feature we will develop soon! The best way for students to include an explanation of their models/drawings is to pair a drawing question with a free response questions where students can explain their model.

--> How do I grade drawing questions?

Visit the "Grading" tab to grade drawing (and free response!) questions. Check out this video for more details.
