Instructor Q&A

Assigning Assessments/tests to all except absent students


It seems that it would b every useful to teachers to have an assessment feature that allows them to quickly post an assessment for a class, but then have the option of unselecting students who are absent the day of the test.  Currently, I understand that students can be individually assigned, but to do that for all students at the start of every class it a huge waste of time.  

Maybe there is a way to do this and I just can't find it.

    Hi Lou,

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    In this case, you may wish to use the Exceptions tool in the gradebook to excuse the student from the Assessment. This way, the student is not penalized and their overall grade is not affected.

    You can find out more about Exceptions here: How do I use Exceptions in my Gradebook?

    I hope this helps!
