To look at the Assignments Dashboard, click or tap on the Assignments tab in the upper left-side navigation bar.
The Assignment Dashboard loads. It will look similar to this:
The first time you look at the Assignments Dashboard you will not see any assignments listed. That’s because you haven’t made any yet!
Note that for the rest of this walk-through, the images in this document will reflect an account that has multiple assignments in various stages of completion. That is the best way to introduce you to the dashboard.
The Dashboard has three sections: In Progress, Submitted Assignments, and Graded.
- The In Progress section contains all the assignments you have created using worktexts
- Submitted Assignments contains all the worktext assignments your students have completed and submitted
- Graded contains all the worktext assignments you have finished grading
The Assignment Dashboard has a few features designed to help you manage all these assignments.
- The search assignments bar allows you to quickly find the assignment you need
- The sort by button allows you to choose whether the assignments are arranged in ascending or descending order
- The filter button allows you to narrow down what you are seeing
- The view archive button allows you to see any assignments that have been archived
When you press the filter button, the filters panel slides open. It looks similar to this:
You can select one or more filters to use to narrow your search for a student assignment.
- The student names filter allows you to search for assignments turned in by a specific student. Just type or copy/paste the name in the student names filter field.
- Select the worktext the assignment was based on using the Worktexts pull-down menu
- Select a due date range (yesterday, last 7 days, etc.)
- Use the toggle button to view or hide practice assignments
- The Reset Filters button sets all filter options back to their default settings
- The left-pointing arrow, if clicked, will pull out a tray with some helpful features. The tray contains both a calendar widget (1 in image below) and a button that allows you to download all student grades (2 in image below).
