How Do I Compare Assignment Answers with other students? (How to make sense of the Assignment Results)

 

  • This is the amount of students who submitted answers, e.g. In the picture below, There has only been 1 submission by another student. The other submission is your own.

 

  • This means that ‘x percentage’ of the number of people who submitted assignments agrees with you, e.g. In the picture below, 1 submission (student) agrees 100% with you.

 

  • Clicking ‘See Breakdown’ will open the breakdown window

 

  • The breakdown shows you how many students have selected each question in percentage, e.g. In the picture below, 100% of 1 student has selected answer 2. You have selected answer 4.

 

  • Clicking ‘Discuss’ will take you to the discussion around that specific question

Want to know the answer to the question: why do I pay?

Firstly, you only pay for Premium and Gold study groups.  All other study groups are free.

Your payment is what allows the lecturer to be in the study group, write notes and exam packs.

    • You can download them via the resources tab – http://www.togetherwepass.co.za/resources/
    • Only Premium and Gold groups have gaurenteed notes and exam packs that we have developed ourselves

 

  • Access to a dedicated lecturer for one-on-one help
    • This is only in Gold and Premium study groups
    • He is able to answer your queries or direct you to a place where you can help yourself!
    • You get help by posting in the study group activity feed and the lecturer will answer you there so all students can benefit from the answer

 

  • Get daily updates from the website
    • You will get an email telling you what has happened in your study group, with a link to the discussion.
