About activities in Schoolwork
If your school enabled the student progress feature in Apple School Manager, and students complete an activity in a progress-reporting app 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. At a minimum, every progress-reporting app sends “time spent” data. For other activities (for example, a link or PDF), you only see whether or not a student submitted the activity. When you request a hand-in activity from a student or give each student a copy of a file to work on, you see whether or not the student submitted a hand-in activity or worked on the file.
For progress-reporting apps, you might need to walk through the content you want to include to see available Schoolwork activities. To do this, launch and run the app on your iPad, then explore the content within the app. As you do so, the content becomes available as Schoolwork activities. For example, to assign a Schoolwork activity for your students to take a quiz in an app and report their progress, you need to first open the quiz when signed in with your teacher account. To assign your recently viewed activities to students from any device, confirm Sync App Activities is selected on your iPad for progress-reporting apps (Go to Settings > Class Progress, then tap Sync App Activities). When Sync App Activities is selected and you view activities, Schoolwork saves your recently viewed activities across devices so you can easily assign these activities to students from any device. If you need to replace or repair your device, syncing your app activities allows you to continue to access your previously viewed activities from another device.
