Instructor Q&A

Google Docs sharing issues


I am listed as an administrator on a co-workers class.  If I post assignments from my Google Drive to his class, he needs permission from me to be able to view students' submissions, even if he is shared on the original Google file.  This is quite problematic as I then have to provide permission for each individual assignment from a student.  Is there a way that two admins on a class can access the same submissions without having to do this?

    Hi Marc,

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!  

    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:
