New Features and Updates

Printing Assessments and Managed Assessments (Enterprise Only)

  • As part of our efforts to make Course Assessments a true replacement for Test/Quiz, we added the ability to create a printed version of a course assessment or managed assessment - even when using the enhanced question types!
  • Printing allows teachers to better support students who need accommodations and gives them more flexibility to administer assessments.
  • Learn more about Printing Assessments.

Observational Grading for Assessments and Managed Assessments (Enterprise Only)

  • We created a new workflow that allows a teacher to create and submit assessments on behalf of their students.
  • This workflow also offers the ability to enter question responses and scores from printed Assessments and Managed Assessments back into Schoology, which are then incorporated into gradebook, mastery, and reports.
  • This empowers instructors and district admins to take advantage of the same features - gradebook, mastery reports, AMP reports, item analysis, etc. - for tests that were printed, as well as other observational activities or unobtrusive assessments.
  • Learn more about Observational Grading for Assessments and Managed Assessments.
