  1. printable assignment list

    It would be fabulous to have the ability to print a list of the assignments name with their due dates. Some students like to have a physicals check list of assignments and when they are due. Even better having the option for this to be displayed as both a list and on a printable calendar.

  2. sorting graded assignment in Teams by channel enrollment or tag

    The team is the complete student enrollment for the hybrid days in school - I have separated the students into their specific cohorts (channels). Still, when I look at a graded assignment, I am not allowed to sort them by channel or a tag to see them as the same group in the classroom.

    Can I sort graded assignments by channel enrollment or tag applied to Team members?

  3. Be able to return a Quiz to a student so they could retake it.

    Instead of being able to return the quiz with their incorrect answers showing the correct answer, as it is now, add an option to show the incorrect questions without the correct answer so they can make a revision. I sometimes give a student, who did not do well the first time, an opportunity to improve their grade.

  5. Add grades without adding assignments

    Have the ability to report back grades to students (with feedback) without the need to set up an assignment first that appears that students have work uncompleted.

  6. Use assignment settings for team when using "create from existing" for assignments

    Right now when you create an assignment, you can set team assignment settings for the channel it will post in, time due, whether new students will be added, etc. If you copy from existing, instead of using these same values, Teams uses the Teams values. It should use the values for the team if those values have been set.

  7. Returning students work - go to next student - both for incomplete and complete

    Return button to students that marks the work as incomplete so that parents get a report of work that was turned in incomplete. Also when you hit either of the bottons, return or return incomplete that it would move to the next person in the class so we not have to click another botton for the next student to show up.

  8. Include homeroom teacher in Excel export from assignments

    I am a Librarian and am responsible for tracking and grading students in the whole school. Right now it is very time consuming to grade, export grades, and manually sort students by class, which is what we ultimately need to do for our grade book. It would be very nice to have the homeroom teacher that the student is associated with be included in the Excel data when we export from an assignment. This would be helpful for anyone who has to work with students school wide (music, pe, library, counselor, SafetyNet, Etc). It would save MANY hours.

  13. Making assignments easy to find for teachers

    Please can you revert to the previous way of listing assignments in their subject folders? They now all appear in one long list jumbled up with old, new and pre-set assignments, making them really hard to organise and find!

  15. Option of warning before the forms stop accepting respones.

    There should be a warning if the form is about to stop accepting responses so that the students can submit their forms on time. We as students face this issue during exams as the form does not accept responses and we are busy doing the paper, sometimes we don't see the time

  18. That teacher should able to return a file as response to a student's work

    I want to be able to comment on students' handouts (in the document itself, not in the comments sections).
    I want to be able to "commit" the comments so the students will see them when they're ready. I don't want the students to see my comments as I write them in real time like in shared docs (before they are final).

  19. Provide Stats for On-time Assignment Completion, etc

    It would be remarkably helpful to be able to run a report for on-time assignment completion for a single assignment for the full class, all assignments for one student, and for all assignments in all the class. This would help motivate student assignment completion if you can hold them accountable for their completion by showing data.

  20. Create a feature that allows us to mark a student assignment as "not turned in" again.

    Create a feature that allows us to mark a student assignment as "not turned in" again. Students often mark work as turned in when nothing is submitted or completed. It would be nice to return it to them as an incomplete assignment (goes back in our list of "not turned" in work) again.
