Assessments on the Android App (Students)


Students 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 Android app. Schoology supports the latest 5 versions of Android. Whenever Google releases a new version of Android, Schoology will drop support for the oldest version it previously supported.  

Within the Android app, you can open an assessment from anywhere that you normally access materials, such as the course materials page, calendar, upcoming feed, or notifications.

Assessment Experience and Tools

Taking the assessment on larger devices, like a Galaxy 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 OnePlus 5T. Below, using the toolbar menu to access Review mode and Accessibility options on an OnePlus 5T.



Other tools such as the Notepad can be utilized while taking the assessment:

Submitting an Assessment

After answering all questions and using any necessary tools, students can submit the assessment from the review 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.

If you have permission to view submissions, you will see the View option. This opens the submission detail view, where you can scroll through the assessment to view each question.
