notification to students for late/missing assignments

Follow

When deadlines have past, students have a bit of an issue knowing that they have anything missing--unless they double check the gradebook or calendar randomly.  Students would find it helpful to have a feature that notified them of a late/missing assignment (and if it linked to the assignment, so much the better).

    Hi Everyone,

    This past spring we released a set of features that communicate to students and parents when students have past-due submissions. You can see a description of these features here: https://support.schoology.com/hc/en-us/articles/204659268-How-Do-Students-and-Their-Parents-Receive-Overdue-Notifications-

    Thanks for your feedback,
    Scott

    A similar notification to their parents would also be helpful.

    Yes, and the ability for students to click/tap on the notification that an assignment has been graded so it takes them directly to where they can see their grade and my comments.  Currently on the iPad app there is too many taps to get to see feedback on an assignment.

    Agree, maybe a tally on the parents page showing the percentage of homeworks handed in on time

    I would love an alert to the students notifying them of assignments not turned in. Once the assignment is past due the kids seem to forget about it. An alert that keeps bugging them until it is submitted would be amazing!

    I would love to see late assignments/tasks turn a different colour and remain in the "Upcoming" pane so that those items are always visible to the student.

    It would be GREAT to also have parents notified of late and missing assignments!

    I would say this is a high-priority feature request. Missing assignments should remain prominently displayed in a student's list of assignments due.

    This would be an amazing feature to have. In a perfect world, students are turning in all assignments on time, but we know that is not the reality! Having to go back through the gradebook and see what has and has not been turned in after the fact can be very frustrating for teachers and students! Thanks

    I strongly support the inclusion of this feature (notification of late/missing work, and having it remain in the "upcoming" pane until submitted) as an addition which would make a great program even better!

    This would be a great way to use a coursework management system. I would find this feature to be incredibly valuable - to students, parents, and teachers.

    I like this but would rather have them alerted prior to the due date... like a reminder notification that students could choose 6-12-24 hour prior notifications... a late/missed assignment alert would also be good for parents/students

    I really like this idea. Especially in completion based assignments, which only appear in the calendar and not on the right column for upcoming assignments, as the idiom goes - out of sight, out of mind...

    Thus, a due date and late or completion type schedule would be excellent - of just being able to see the assignment on the right.

    Agreed! Once the due date has passed, it should still show if unsubmitted. Similarly, I would like to be able to message a group of students, say, who did not turn in the assignment, with one click (not entering names individually)

    I've had a number of parents ask for this capability. Additionally, a notification of grades that fall below a certain threshold would be nice as well. This and the overall calendar in Schoology are it's biggest weaknesses. Under a separate request there was an extensive list of needed improvements to the calendar/assignments that would address much of this.

    I would love this feature as well. So would my students!
