Schoology Release Notes: September 2020


New Features & Updates

Item Banks for Course Assessments

  • We added the ability to create question (item) banks in Schoology for course-level Assessments.
  • This allows instructors to create technology-enhanced questions in banks and add technology-enhanced questions from a bank to a course assessment.
  • This feature increases the portability of that content and improves the authoring process.
  • The first phase of this release gives instructors the ability to create an item bank and add each item to course assessments. Follow the progress on further updates to Item Banks on our Product Roadmap here.

Usage Analytics - Date Selector for School Analytics Dashboard

  • As of August 1, 2019, School Analytics is using a new system that provides better insights around the overall adoption of Schoology at the district level and makes it easier to export the data at scale.
  • We added a date selector tool to the School Analytics Dashboard that enables system administrators to filter usage data by a selected time range or by preset time range filters (Last 7 Days, Last 30 Days, and Last 12 Months).
  • This feature is available to all Schoology Enterprise customers with System Administrator permissions (View School Analytics).
