Assessments on the iOS App (Students)


Students in schools that use the Enterprise version of Schoology can view and submit Assessments from a mobile device.

Note: To take advantage of all Schoology features, it is strongly recommended that users upgrade to the latest version of the iOS app. Schoology only supports the latest 3 versions of iOS. Whenever Apple releases a new version of iOS, Schoology will drop support for the oldest version it previously supported.

Within the native iOS app, you can open an assessment from anywhere that you normally access a material, like the course materials page, calendar, upcoming feed, or notifications.

Begin an Assessment 

Tapping the assessment or managed assessment opens the assessment directly within the iOS app. From here, you can start a new attempt or resume an attempt you have already started.

Assessment Experience and Tools

Taking the assessment on larger devices, like an iPad tablet, is very similar to taking an assessment on the web version of Schoology. The vertical toolbar on the right side can be used to navigate to specific questions and access your assessment tools.

The assessment experience has been optimized for small screen sizes, so you'll notice some small changes when taking an assessment on a smartphone. The toolbar is collapsed into a drop-down menu, and the arrows in the lower right-hand corner are used to navigate between questions.

Note: Any assessment tools that have been enabled for the assessment can be accessed from any mobile device, regardless of size.

The assessment layout changes slightly on smaller mobile devices. Above, various assessment tools are shown on an iPhone X. Below, navigating to the assessment tools menu and using the notepad on an iPhone X. Learn more about Notepad for Assessments here.

Submitting an Assessment

After answering all questions and using any necessary tools, students can submit the assessment by tapping Finish on the review screen and Yes on the next screen.

Reviewing a Submitted Assessment

From the assessment page, students can see their grade, view submissions that have been graded, or resume any attempts that are still in progress.

Note: Depending on the settings in place for the assessment, you may not have permission to view submissions.
