About Schoolwork assignments
Assignments provide a way for teachers to share information or homework with students. Assignments can consist of:
An assignment title
A list of recipients (an entire class or one or more students in a class)
A due date
A delivery date
Instructions (text, photos, videos, drawings, and audio files)
Using the different types of activities available for assignments, you can incorporate a variety of apps into your class instruction.
If your school enabled the Student Progress feature in Apple School Manager and students work on activities in a progress-reporting app you sent in an assignment, all available progress data is shared with you. Schoolwork displays the data from the progress-reporting app as students work on activities 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. Every activity that supports progress reporting displays time spent data in Schoolwork. For document and link activities, Schoolwork automatically displays information (time spent) as students work on the activity.
You can publish an assignment to an entire class or one or more students in a class, schedule an assignment to publish at a later time, or save an assignment as a draft until you are ready to publish at a later time.
If there are co-teachers in your class when you publish or schedule an assignment, your assignment is visible and editable by the other teachers. Draft assignments are not visible to other teachers until you publish the assignment.
You need an Internet connection to publish an assignment. If your Internet connection is interrupted, you can save your assignment as a draft to send at a later time, as long as it doesn’t contain any file attachments.
Schoolwork provides you with 200 gigabytes (GB) of iCloud Drive storage for distributing and collecting activities.
