About Schoolwork assignments
Assignments provide a way for teachers to share information or homework with students. Assignments can consist of:
A list of recipients (an entire class or one or more students in a class)
An assignment name
A due date
Activities (apps, files, photos, videos, scanned documents, links, and hand-in requests)
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 complete activities you sent in an assignment, 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. At a minimum, every activity that supports progress reporting sends time spent data.
You can post an assignment to an entire class or one or more students in a class, or save an assignment as a draft until you are ready to post at a later time.
If there are co-teachers in your class when you post an assignment, your assignment is visible and editable by the other teachers. Draft assignments are not visible to other teachers until you post the assignment.
You need an Internet connection to post 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.
