Based on educator feedback, over the weekend we launched enhancements to our assignments and grading features that provide greater visibility, flexibility and efficiencies for both you and your students. New features include:
‘At a Glance” view from your Edmodo stream allows you to see immediately how many students have turned in an assignment.
Assignment Overview and Details: The assignment overview link provides a quick review of the assignment; selecting a student name from the list will bring up individual assignment details including status, number of revisions, and attached files. You can grade assignments directly from the Assignment detail page and students will receive immediate spotlight notification that a grade has been posted.
In addition, you can add comments about the assignment and reply to student comments directly on the Assignment detail page. When a student has submitted a new comment on an assignment, you’ll receive a Spotlight notification on your Edmodo home page.
Student Assignment Status, Attachments and Comments: Students can now monitor status to track whether they’ve turned in an assignment, if it’s waiting for a grade, or if a grade has been posted. In addition, they can they can now attach resources to their assignment, comment on assignments after they have been submitted, and resubmit an assignment.
As always, thank you for the detailed feedback and suggestions for ways in which Edmodo can provide greater value to your classroom. Please let us know what you think of the new enhancements – and keep the new suggestions coming!
