Completed Feature Ideas

to better individualize assignments


It would be great if you could individualize an assignment with more versatility than at present.

For example, if I want to make a timed quiz, and I have students with extended time (pretty common with any kid with an IEP), I currently have to make two of the same quiz and assign each to a different grading group in order to differentiate their time. It would be great if I only had to make one quiz but could differentiate certain options (ie, time to complete, date due) to certain members or grading groups.

Moodle has this kind of functionality. And as it is open-source, you could look into its code to see how it does that.

    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.

    This feature can be useful when creating different versions of assignments or assessments, as mentioned above, as you can include these items in folders that are individually assigned to specific students or grading groups.

    Also to be able to modify the scoring rubric and/or expectations would be great.

    This would also streamline the gradebook, since when you have to create 2 tests and assign them to grading groups, you end up with 2 columns in the gradebook for (essentially) one assignment.
