Assign folders to students


We would like to be able to assign folders of a collection of work to certain students to help us differentiate.

    Hi, all -

    I'm thrilled to announce that we’ve built a new way to differentiate instruction with assigned folders! This has been the Schoology Community's #1 request for a long time, so we greatly appreciate your patience while we worked to find the right solution. You asked, and we listened!

    Teachers can now individually assign folders to specific students and grading groups so that only the assignees can view the folder and its contents. Any materials added to the folder are automatically updated to be available to the assigned student(s).

    Additionally, this new workflow for individually assigning folders includes the ability to "Select All" student in a course section. This should reduce the clicks needed to exclude specific students without needing to build a grading group. For example, you can now assign the folder to all students except one who was absent.

    Yes! This is a strong method of differentiation for student assignments. Please increase the priority on this great idea!

    Being able to assign an entire folder to a student, instead of individual assignments, would make EVERYTHING easier. As it is, every folder I have has to have at least 3 different versions of every assignment in it for differentation purposes. As you can imagine, it can get pretty confusing when I'm trying to assign work to individual or groups of students. Please, please, please look into this.
