About progress in Schoolwork
As a teacher, to get the most out of Schoolwork, make sure your school’s IT administrator enables the student progress feature in Apple School Manager. When your school enables the student progress feature, 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.
If your school enables the student progress feature 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. 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.
When reviewing progress data, you can see:
Class progress. The My Classes view in the Students tab displays students across all your classes with incomplete activities past Handout due dates.
Handout progress. The Handout details view displays how students are progressing with the activities in the selected Handout.
Student progress. The student progress view displays how a selected student is progressing with all activities across all Handouts and classes.
You can use the My Classes filter to focus on a specific class or, to see how the selected student is doing on a specific Handout, tap View Handout.
Progress data doesn’t appear instantaneously. Schoolwork takes time to process data before displaying it in the My Classes view, Handout details 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 only 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.
