Thursday 3/1 update: Copy Quizzes, Quiz grades, and a faster Confusion Barometer

We pushed some changes to last night.

Copy Quizzes

You can now copy Quizzes from one Event to another. This is very handy if you have multiple classes and multiple Events that need to use the same Quizzes. To copy a Quiz, go to the target Event, click/tap “Add a new Quiz”, and then select the Quiz you would like to copy from one of your existing Events.

Note that this only applies to active Quizzes. Once a Quiz has been removed, it falls off the list of copy-able Quizzes.

Copy Polls and Copy Discussions are coming soon.

Faster Confusion Barometer

The Confusion Barometer used to run more slowly than other features, but we have made some performance tweaks that will allow it to refresh more frequently. There also used to be some oddities where Confusion presses would not show up immediately — those should be resolved in this update.

Quizzes show grades to students

GoSoapBox Quizzes allow for two kinds of questions: Multiple Choice and Short Answer. Multiple Choice questions give teachers the option of selecting an answer that is correct, and when students answer questions we track whether or not they got it right. When teachers later export the Quiz data, they can easily see who got what right or wrong (this is not yet available for Short Answer questions).

We have modified GoSoapBox Quizzes such that when possible, we show students what their grade was on the Quiz.

More noticeable links in header

You will probably file this one under “Who cares?!” but for reference, you will eventually notice that the Account Dashboard and Student Name links in the header of an Event are more noticeable.

We also increased the limit on Student Names lengths from to 45 characters (from 30 characters). This change was made because someone left feedback asking us to increase the limit. Hopefully a 50% increase is enough for now.


Recreational marijuana

The effects of recreational marijuana use include lightheartedness, a feeling of relaxation, increased appetite, and reduced blood pressure, there is a good reason why people are searching for weed seeds.

The medicinal use of marijuana is also well researched. Many studies have shown marijuana’s medicinal properties, including: pain relief, anxiety, vomiting, seizures, neuropathic pain, muscle spasms, nausea, vomiting, nausea, and insomnia. If you are interested in learning all the benefits, Weed Seeds USA can help you out.

When people talk about the negatives of marijuana, they typically mention the effects on cognitive function, memory, and attention, while ignoring the positive. This is understandable, as the negative effects of marijuana are well documented. This can be difficult to reverse, which is why a combination of cannabinoids is the best therapy for people dealing with the negative effects of marijuana.

The benefits of medical marijuana are even more compelling. Numerous studies have shown that medical marijuana can significantly reduce the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, which is why people are always looking for marijuana seeds. Additionally, a recent study found that medical marijuana reduces the symptoms of back pain by 80%. For most people, these studies provide hope. For those who suffer from chronic pain, it can provide relief. For those who are living with HIV, it can help alleviate the physical symptoms that can arise with the virus. This means that when it comes to the medicinal use of marijuana, the positive effects are indisputable.

What about the negatives? The negative effects of marijuana are well documented. However, this doesn’t diminish the importance of medical marijuana. There are many uses for marijuana.

In Oregon, patients will be able to possess up to 10 ounces of medical marijuana at one time, grow up to six marijuana plants at home, and carry up to an ounce of marijuana in their vehicles without being arrested, fined, or ticketed. Patients with an existing medical marijuana card can keep their card and use their medical marijuana to relieve pain and suffering. Those who have never had a medical marijuana card will be able to apply for one starting January 1, 2018.

New Hampshire: The New Hampshire Medical Marijuana Act will allow people with a debilitating medical condition, including cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, and multiple sclerosis, to use marijuana to alleviate their symptoms, with the requirement that the patient be certified by a physician. Patients and their caregivers may possess up to two ounces of marijuana. All qualified patients can possess up to an ounce of marijuana and receive a tax credit for up to five ounces of medical marijuana, as well. Patients must use the marijuana in their homes and cannot use the marijuana to grow it on their own. The law also requires a written recommendation from their physician for the medical use of marijuana and establishes strict restrictions for minors. On December 15, 2016, Governor Chris Sununu signed the bill into law. North Dakota: The North Dakota Medical Marijuana Act (Act 20, Section 25) allows persons with qualifying medical conditions to use marijuana. Persons with more than one qualifying medical condition will be subject to a one-year residency requirement. Persons can receive a medical marijuana card if they are registered in North Dakota, if they reside more than one-half mile away from the dispensary, and if they have two qualifying medical conditions and one of those conditions is cancer. Patients must register with their local municipal or county government. Persons who receive medical marijuana cards are able to possess up to three ounces of marijuana at any time and receive treatment from a registered health care practitioner.


Monday update: Pausing, archiving, and removing GoSoapBox Events

This morning we rolled out some minor changes to GoSoapBox.

  • Closing an Event is now Pausing. Paused Events are accessible to your students, but students will not be able to take any action.
  • You can now Archive your Events (you can access Archived Events, but your students cannot).
  • You can now permanently remove unwanted Events (to clean up your Account Dashboard).

You may also notice a ‘Refresh’ button occasionally pop up on your GoSoapBox Events. Events that have not been used in a while will stop real-time updating after a while. You and your students can re-activate real-time updating by clicking ‘Refresh’. This will only impact you if you have left your GoSoapBox Event open in a browser.
