Feature Idea: Select entire class and then exclude individual students when individually assigning material

Seguir

The current "Individually Assign" feature available when creating or editing an Assignment, Test/Quiz, Assessment, or Discussion works well when a teacher only needs to send that assignment to a small number of students, but is not well-suited for teachers who wish to post an assignment for all but a handful of students in a course. An improved solution would allow teachers to select the entire class, then enter or select individual names to exclude, in a manner similar to Google Classroom and GoGuardian Teacher.

Use case #1: A teacher has a class of 26 students. He is giving a test on Schoology one day during class, but has 2 students absent. Instead of having to enter or select the names of the 24 students who are present, it would be more efficient for him to choose Individually Assign, select all students, and then uncheck the names of the two absent students.

Use case #2: A teacher has a class of 24 students. 3 have IEPs that allow for tests to be read and extended time to be given, while 2 other students have IEPs for extended time only. The teacher has created three versions of the test with different due times and, where applicable, text-reading software added. When ready to assign the test, she can already easily individually assign the 3 text-read tests and the 2 extended time tests to the appropriate students. Rather than having to enter or check the remaining 19 names individually, this feature idea would allow her to select all 24 students and deselect the 5 students with IEPs.

    Hi Douglas,

    Thank you for sharing your idea in the Community and thank you for your fresh perspective regarding Individually Assign.

    Loving the Use cases too, thank you VERY much!

    For Both Use Cases, we can definitely see where your idea would save Instructors a LOT of time!

    A quick suggestion for a workaround regarding Use Case #2:

    - If you have identified specific groups (IEP's in this Use Case), you may want to try combining Grading Groups and Individually Assign. You can try setting up your groupings ahead of time to identify them later during the term. Once it's time to assess students, you can individually assign tests and other content to the premade groups. 

    Let us know if this workaround helps!

    Thanks again for your feedback.

    Hi Charles,

    I am aware of the Grading Groups and have advised our teachers to do so for classes where they know testing accommodations in advance.

    Thanks,

    Doug

    I was just posting about Use Case # 2 when I have special ed students split across two of my four linked sections.  Ideally, Douglas's suggestion would be the easiest!  However, I've been using the grading groups work around for the past two years.  This is the first year that I have the same special ed program split across sections and I'm just having to create so many grading groups to individually assign things so that my special ed students don't see 2 versions (that would be confusing enough for them!).   I wish that there was a more efficient option.
