Can we get a parents' app to see when their child's teacher creates an assignment next please?426 votes
We’re excited to announce that the Weekly guardian email digest is now available!
With this feature enabled, Teams will automatically send parents/guardians a weekly email summary of past and upcoming assignments.
How to get started:
1. Setup Parent and Guardian Sync on Microsoft School Data Sync (SDS) and bulk add all your guardian emails: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/schooldatasync/parent-contact-sync
2. Then O365 Admins can enable the ‘Weekly guardian email digest’ setting inside the new Assignments settings in the Teams Admin Center. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/expand-teams-across-your-org/assignments-in-teams
We can’t wait to hear your feedback.
I'm planning on using teams for classes the year. The phone app seems to be very limited. Is there a way to view assignments through the mobile app?362 votes

Both the student and the teacher need somewhere to view all the assignment that the student has submitted, together with grades and feedback. When grading, it is a crucial feature for the teacher to be able to get an overview on what the student has done, if assignments have been missed and how the assignments were graded.334 votes
Great news, each of your class teams now has a Grades tab where you can view assignments at a glance as well as track how individual students in your class are progressing. Clicking on a student’s name in the Grades tab takes you to their individual progress.
can we have a list of all the assignments under the assignments tab? the week to view means students have to keep clicking right to see whats been set.

There should be a way to copy an assignment from one team to another. If a teacher has more than one section of a particular class, they would have the same assignments for each class, so it would only make sense to create it once, then copy to all classes. If small changes needed to be made later, they can always go in and edit on an as needed basis.304 votes
Thank you for your continued support. This feature should be available now.
There should be a gradebook which automatically records results from assignments. A Gradebook is needed to show ALL the students grades for ALL the assignments. Something with weighting and totaling of selected assignments.213 votes

Please reach out to TurnItIn to develop an app that works with TurnItIn.
The 'assignments' functionality is fine for primary schools. Secondary schools need better integration with TurnItIn.207 votes
Turnitin is available in Microsoft Teams for built-in similarity checks on student assignments. This option streamlines the grading process, while reinforcing to students the importance of creating authentic work.
Note: A Turnitin license is required in order to use the integration with Assignments in Teams. If you have a Turnitin subscription, IT Admins can sign up to enable the integration.
I have some course where assignments need to be recorded as Pass, Merit or Distinction (or fail!). It would be really helpful if we could customise the "grade" given to students as this isn't always a percentage or numerical score.156 votes

Thank you all for the feedback and support!
Right now, it seems like students can only see feedback on an assignment if the scores have been posted. But once the scores are posted students are not allowed to redo that assignment and resubmit the work based off of the teacher's feedback.153 votes
In Classroom you could create an assignment and check each class that it would post to at once. In Teams you currently have to recreate that assignment for each class. We need to be able to create the assignment once and send it to multiple classes.149 votes
Thank you for your continued feedback. You should now have access to this functionality
I'd like to be able to distribute a page into OneNote as an assignment,. Students should be able to complete the work within OneNote and mark it as submitted within onenote. I can then mark it within OneNote adding the score (to a side panel or equivalent). It feels like this new teams is not encouraging digital inking which for me is one of the major benefits of using OneNote.98 votes

We cannot use Teams for Education on an iPad. There is a Teams app for iPads, but it does not have assignments included. The main browsers on an iPad (Safari, Chrome or Firefox) do not support Teams, so we cannot use the browser version as well. Many students use iPads that cannot upgrade to iOS 10, so please make any improvements compatible with iOS 9 iPads.93 votes
Thank you for your feedback. We now have assignment on mobile and Tablet.
It would be nice for teachers to be able to preview posted assignments as a student, just to ensure that the documents and such function for the students the way we intend.87 votes
Thank you so much for all your feedback. We recently shipped ‘Student View’ which allows you to see what your students see.
Need to be able to delete .a rubric from the list. If I make a mistake on a rubric I want to be able to delete it so I don't mistakenly use it again OR I need the ability to edit the version that shows up in the rubric list when assigning a rubric.69 votes
Thanks everyone for the feedback. We completed this a while ago. Here’s how you can delete rubrics from your list – this will not remove the rubric from assignments where it’s already attached!
In the old MS Classroom students and teachers were able to send links such as external links, YouTube links, SWAY links or even FORMS links.
I'd appreciate having the same option in the new MS TEAMS assignments68 votes
Thanks for all the feedback. We recently launched a feature where teachers and students will be able to add links as part of assignments. Enjoy!
As of right now, if you forget to create a rubric for an assignment, you can't go back and update the assignment to include a rubric.67 votes
Thanks everyone for all your feedback! You can now add a rubric even after you have created the assignment.
When student hand in their PDF I have to download the file instead of reading it inline. So I like to see an inline PDF reader.52 votes
Just wanted everyone to know that this work was completed a while ago. You can now view PDF submissions from students inside the Teams Assignments grading view! Thanks again to everyone for sharing your feedback on this :)
Once a teacher reviews and Posts an Assignment:
Students cannot see comments (only Feedback and edits)
Students cannot edit the document (looks like a screen shot)
Students now have no "working document" to Turn in (just a screen shot)
There is no Turn In Again option once the teacher has reviewed the assignment41 votes
In the latest update teachers can now provide iterative, personalized, and actionable feedback while students are working on their assignments. Assignment submissions can now be resubmitted and continuously improved – even after the teacher leaves feedback.

I was playing around with Teams with a colleague today and noticed that once an assignment was reviewed by the teacher the student could not resubmit it. It seems that the only way for a student to resubmit an assignment is to have the teacher create an new assignment.
It's important for student to be given feedback then resubmit if necessary. Please help! Thanks.34 votes
