About progress in Schoolwork
As a teacher, to get the most out of Schoolwork, make sure your school’s IT administrator enables student progress in Apple School Manager. When student progress is enabled, you can view the progress your students are making on activities you assign to your class. You’ll be able to check how students are progressing on an app activity both individually and compared to the rest of the class.
When student progress is enabled in Apple School Manager and students complete activities you assigned in a Handout, all available progress data is shared with you. The progress-reporting app automatically sends information about how students are doing as they complete the activity in the app (for example, time spent on the activity, the percentage completed, quiz scores, hints used, or points earned). The data available depends on the type of activity, and is defined by the app developer. For other activities (for example, a link or PDF), you only see whether or not a student marked the activity complete. When you request an item from a student or give each student a copy of a file to work on, you see whether or not the student marked the item complete, as well as the work the student submitted.
When reviewing progress data, you can see:
Class progress. The Handout detail view aggregates data for all students in your class.
In the Handout detail view, you can view details to see how each student is progressing with the activities in the Handout.
Student progress. The student progress view displays individual data for each student, for all assignments, in your class.
Progress data doesn’t appear instantaneously. Schoolwork takes time to process data before displaying it in the Handout detail view and student progress view.
If necessary, your school’s IT administrator can disable reporting of student progress for an entire organization, a group of students, or an individual student. If reporting of student progress is disabled for an entire organization, the administrator can choose to pause reporting or delete all previously reported data for all students. If reporting of student progress is disabled for an individual student, all previously reported data is automatically deleted and is no longer accessible.
Note: For privacy reasons, teachers can see student progress only on the activities assigned for a class they teach, and students only have access to their own progress data. Progress data is just between teachers and students. See About privacy and security for Apple products in education, Data and Privacy Overview for Schools, and Privacy Overview for Parents.
