Case Scenario Critical Reader - Alternative Tools (UW-Madison)
This document outlines alternative tools to the Case Scenario Critical Reader (CSCR) tool at UW-Madison.
Earlier this year, an update was sent about the limitations of using CSCR with Canvas, along with information on plans for exploring potential alternatives.
CSCR will no longer be a campus-supported tool. The Canvas Transition Team has identified potential alternatives for the basic CSCR gradebook reporting in D2L; however, we are still investigating alternatives for the advanced reporting capabilities, such that are available with CSCR in Moodle. A pilot for a advanced reporting capabilities started in Fall 2017 and continues in Spring 2018. More information regarding the pilot can be found here.
The currently identified alternatives for the basic CSCR gradebook reporting are Canvas, Pressbooks, Articulate Storyline. In the Fall 2017 the team identified issues with Adobe Captivate's accessibility and data reporting which has currently dropped it from the list of recommended tools. Selecting an alternate tool should be done with care as there are cost and support considerations for each. Please refer to the table below for more information regarding each tool.
Members of our transition team would like to meet with you to help you select the solution(s) that best meets your needs and to move your content. Please let us know how and when we can best assist you by completing this form or contact the designated instructional technologist for your school or college.
