New and Improved Version of ClassRoll

Aug. 15, 2007

ITS is pleased to announce that an enhanced version of the ClassRoll application (http://www.baylor.edu/classroll) was made available on August 14. The additional features included in this new version are

•a photo grid report format to support easier roll-checking,

•inclusion of student major on the formatted rosters, and

•improved links to instructions for downloading class lists.

These updates were made as a result of feedback received from the 2007 Information Systems & Services departmental assessment plan which included a survey of summer 2007 faculty about their usage of ClassRoll. Overall, the survey rated ClassRoll as a very valuable tool for faculty, particularly during the start of a semester. The student photos and the online roster were the most popular elements of the system, with printable rosters, indication of graduation candidates, and grade verification also heavily used.
