Intro to Schoolwork
Schoolwork helps you easily distribute, monitor, collect, and review assignments.
You can share a variety of content with your students, even when students are out of the classroom. You can assign anything from PDFs, files, photos, videos, documents, links, to activities within an app. You can easily view class and student progress data and use the data to determine how your students are doing. Using Schoolwork progress reporting, you can personalize instruction based on each student’s needs.
For students, assignments and announcements automatically appear on their iPad, organized by class and due date. Students have a single place to find content and instruction, to submit work, and to view their progress.
See Apple Products for Teaching and Learning for information about the apps that can help you put the power of technology to work in and out of the classroom.
Schoolwork and teachers
The Schoolwork app lets you:
Request work from students and send announcements. Students receive a notification on their iPads when you request work or send an announcement.
Collaborate with students on activities. You can share files with students individually or with an entire class. When you share collaborative files, you can review student progress and provide feedback while students are actively working on files.
Review progress to see how your students are doing and determine if a student needs extra challenges or attention. Depending on how a student is doing, you can request revisions from students, unlock specific activities to give students more time, or return work to students.
View overall progress. You can use the class view, assignment details view, student progress views, and student pop-up pane to see how your entire class and individual students are doing overall in your class and with each assignment and activity.
Schoolwork and students
The Schoolwork app lets students:
View all their classes in one place and quickly see which assignments are due next.
View announcements that their teachers shared with them in Schoolwork.
Work on assigned activities and submit work to teachers. Students can submit work from the Schoolwork app or Pages, Numbers, and Keynote activities from within the iWork app. Additionally, students can use the Share button in the app where they did their work and choose Schoolwork as the share destination (for example, after creating a video in Clips).
Collaborate with teachers and other students on assignment activities (for example, editing an essay in Pages for iPadOS). Depending on how teachers choose to share a collaborative file, students can edit the file and view feedback from their teachers and other students while actively working on the file themselves.
View activity details to see if their teachers requested a revision, unlocked a specific activity to give them more time, or returned their work.
View progress on assigned activities. Students can use their class view, assignment details view, and student pop-up pane to see how they are doing overall in their class and with each assignment and activity.
Note: To use Schoolwork, teachers and students must have a Managed Apple ID account. If you need help with your Managed Apple ID account, teachers should contact their school and students should contact their teachers.
