  2. All Classes' Assignments View with Calendar Integration

    Students should be able to view all of their assignments from multiple, or all of, their classes at the same time. Even in elementary school, students have multiple classes and teachers that assign work. As a parent guiding my child, I need a "planner view" where I can see all of their currently assigned work from all classes in one place. Additionally, please provide calendar integration for this purpose. Students are required to use a daily planner at school, so there should be a way to easily provide this online.

  4. Teacher Upload annotated student assignments

    Teachers should be allowed to attach annotated student work which is submitted as a jpeg or pdf. I would like to be able to attach the annotated file to the student during the "Return" or grading process of an assignment.

  5. Prevent students from submitting nothing to Assignments

    Some students click the 'turn in' button when there is nothing attached- it should be a required field that work has to be attached or they can't hand it in.

  6. Rubric should calculate partial points

    If my rubric contains partial credit, such as 0.5 points for an answer that is somewhat correct, the rubric does not calculate the partial points. It rounds down to the nearest whole number. If Teams is going to allow me to put 0.5 points in as a potential score for a category, it should calculate it correctly.

  7. Grading DIscussion Posts

    It would be amazing if there was an easy way to grade a student's posts. I assign discussion boards where students post their responses and then respond to 1-2 other students. It would be much easier to click on a student and view their post and responses all in one page/view.

  8. Notify a student when an assignment has been returned so that they review the feedback given by a teacher.

    Many younger students do not open returned assignments and miss important feedback like:
    * Redo the task/sections
    *Submit corrections, etc...
    If a notification were sent to individual students that their Mathematics task was returned with feedback this would be a great help.

  9. Archiving Assignments

    We need to be able to move completed assignments into another folder, e.g. an archive folder to declutter the list of assignments

  10. Assignment Category Filter for Gradebook

    It would be helpful to add a filter to the new Gradebook tab to allow users to view assignments organized by category (e.g., all math assignments). This will help teachers to review student progress in one subject much more efficiently (rather than having to scroll through all the assigned tasks for each subject area).

  11. Allow teachers to assign an assignment in a private channel.

    It would be good to allow teachers to assign an assignment in a private channel. Some teachers teach small groups.

  12. Assignment 'feedback' should go to 'chat' too.

    We're all trying to 'close the feedback loop'. All assignment feedback should go directly to the 'chat' between teacher and student to continue the discussion in a single centralized place.

  13. All assignments are shown in the assignments tab

    I would like all the assignments to be shown in the assignments tab.
    I have access to many classes, and i would like to see all the assignments listed there, instead of having to select the classes one by one.

  14. Updating assignments assigned to multiple classes

    At the moment you can assign the same assignment to multiple classes. Great. But, if you need to make an update to an assignment that has been scheduled, you have to go into each class to do it. This used to be possible when the Assignment section was not sorted by class, but by assignment.

  15. Link Grades to Assignments

    "Turned in" does NOT equal "Completed"

    Currently, scholars can view their Grades and see what their status and score is for each Assignment. However, it would be nice if the Grades function was linked to the Assignment tab. This way, when a scholar "Turns In" an assignment but it is in fact BLANK and gets a zero, that assignment won't fall into the black hole where the rest of the completed assignments go. "Completed" does NOT equal "Turned In" and it's frustrating that these mean the same thing within TEAMS world.

    Two solutions:
    -Grades should appear INSIDE the Assignments view…

  16. Student Comment Section on Assignments

    There should be a box that allows students to give an optional comment when submitting an assignment. This would be make communication with teachers easier when it comes to their understanding of the work set.

    A feature like this would also be useful for returned assignments. When assignments are returned the teachers give feedback, but short of re-submitting the assignment there is no way for the student to easily communicate with the teacher and respond to that feedback. It is very annoying to have to resubmit work to respond to a small comment from the teacher where they perhaps gave…

  17. Create Assignments and Grades in each channel

    I use channels for each unit in my class. An assignment tab and grades tab under each channel would allow for better organization. It would also make Teams vastly better than Google Classroom ;)

  18. Microsoft Teams- Straight to Assignments

    Our school is utilizing Teams. We would like for the Home Screen within Teams to be Assignments rather than Conversations. We also would like for the Calendar to show the whole month (not just a week). Unless students are actively looking for the assignments, they won't see something due the next week.

  19. reject a turned in assignment

    Reject a turned in assignment.
    Is there a way to reject an assignment that has been turned in. For example, if a student plagiarizes an assignment, you would be able to reject it and they would be notified with the reason why.

  20. self review rubric

    It would be great to add an option to the rubric interface that includes a replicate for students to self review. It would be on the same rubric as the teacher uses - just for students to give their own perspective.
