Teacher's Class Overview

Classes

Once tapping “Classes” on the left menu, you will see the names of any classes created appear on the menu as well as the “+Add Class” button which will allow you to create a new class.

+Add Class

To create a new class, tap on “+Add Class” in the left menu.


To choose a class icon, select the green photo icon under the class circle and choose an image source, either taking a picture or choosing an image from your library.  This can be done later, skipped, and/or changed later as well.

Enter the class name (Ex. “Living Environment”) and description (Ex. “Period 3”). The description is optional.



The Classes tab opens up the class icons on the right side of the screen. Tap on any of them to enter the screen for that particular class.

Tap “Save” to finish adding that class

Class Menu

Once tapping on a class on the main screen you will get four tabs for each class, “Assignments”, “Students”, “Settings”, and “Permissions”.

Assignments Tab

The assignments tab lets you add new assignments as well as get information about assignments for the class.

The list of the assignments will allow you to do two things, tapping on the title will show you the list of students in your class that have had their assignments Graded, Turned In, or Not Turned In.  Tapping on the word “View” will allow you to see the assignment that had been assigned.

Create Assignment

Creating an assignment can be done in two locations, one of which is from within a class in the assignment tab; the other is from within the Assignment Library

Creating a new assignment is done in three simple steps, Assignment Details, Rubric, and Assignment Materials.

Assignment Details

Here is where you provide a name, description and due date for an assignment.

You can also set whether or not the assignment is able to collect feedback from other teachers of the student or other peers of the student.

You can also select what feedback types are available for these others to provide.

By default the feedback types are all on (colored) but tapping the feedback type icon on the left can toggle them off.

You can also set the assignment to be public and show up for other educators in the Assignment Library.


The second step of creating a new assignment is to add a rubric.  This is an optional step.

From the Add Rubric screen there are several options.


To change the rubric from the stock rubric on the screen, select “Load a Different Rubric”

From this screen you can search for a rubric that has been created, tap on the rubric title and then “Use Rubric” or edit it by tapping on any of the cells to alter the text, add columns or rows.

You can also “+Create Rubric” where you tap on a cell and enter the information that you want to provide.  Once you have edited the rubric to your satisfaction, select “Save Rubric”


To not include a rubric, select “Continue without Rubric” on the bottom left.

To use the stock rubric you press “Save” on the bottom right

Students

The Students tab shows the students who are registered in the class.

Tapping on a student avatar you can see the students “Profile”, as well as any “Finished Work”, and “Reports”

Add Student allows you to add additional students to the class.


Settings for a classroom allows you to change the information provided for the classroom.

You can change or add a photo for the class icon, edit the name of the class, select a subject, description, grade range taught, as well as see in the classroom code, which can be shuffled or shared.


Permissions tab allows you to set the app permissions for all the students in the classroom.

These are toggled settings between a green (on) state or an empty (off) state.
