Instructor Q&A

Unable to view "In-Progress" or "Submissions"


I'm having difficulty opening student assignments that are "In-Progress" or that have been submitted.  I can open assignments that are shared with me, just like a student can.  I can also open individual student assignments if I send a message to my co-teacher to give me access, but it only works for that specific student.  Shouldn't have to do this for every individual student, every assignment.  Let me also mention, I had no problem with this during the first trimester of school.  This is only since we have transitioned to second trimester.  This is occurring with all the classes I co-teach. The funny part is that I have the ability to assign a grade to these assignments, but can't view them!  I've tried logging back in and following all the prompts on the page to reconnect to Google Drive, under my school email, no luck.

    Hi Todd, 

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community! 

    I am sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulty with this issue. Because we are leveraging Google's permission-sharing capabilities, at this time, all student copies are only shared with the teacher who created the assignment and the student who opens it.  All other visitors to the course, whether, co-teachers, admins, advisors, will not be able to see the submission. 

    As a workaround, the course admin who created the assignment can share to any co-teachers and other faculty directly from Google Drive. All student copies are organized into Google Drive folders by course and assignment. This way, the primary teacher may push out all assignments to students in Schoology and share submissions directly from Google Drive via the folder with all student work to the co-teacher. The co-teacher can then view the assignments through Schoology or directly in Google Drive. 

    Here's a Help Guide with more information on this process. 

    If the issue continues to persist after using the workaround, please let me know.
