Instructor Q&A

Shared Access Issue


This is the most succinct way for me to describe my issue: 

  • I share Administrator status with other teachers in a shared Schoology course.
  • There is an assignment posted in that course for students to access every week.  
  • The assignment is a Google Sheet.  
  • The assignment is created by "Add Materials" -> "Add Assignment" -> "Assign From App/ Google Drive Assignment".  
  • Every teacher had "Editor" access to the original Google Sheet document that is being assigned.
  • Students are able to access the assignment, edit their own version of the Google Sheet, and submit the assignment through Schoology.
  • The original teacher who posted the assignment can see the submitted assignments.
  • None of the other teachers can view the submitted assignments.  They have to request access for each individual submission.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.  Thank you!

    Hello Von,

    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 Google Drive directly. 

    Here's a Help Guide with more information on this process. I hope this helps!
