Clipboard Overview

On the homepage, click on the lefthand side Menu button (three lines/"hamburger" icon) to view the navigation panel. Click on Clipboard.

In this tool:

  • Create and save Quick Lists of students to interact with a specific group of students again later.
  • Click Activities to create personalized activities for individual students or groups.
  • Click Badges to reinforce good performance.
  • Click Tasks to create simple, personalized tasks for individual students or groups.
  • Click Messages to quickly communicate with individual students or groups.

Grading Clipboard Assignments

Clipboard assignments show up in the "For Me" tab in the gradebook.

The Clipboard is always accessible from the toolbar to facilitate immediate intervention. A "+" button appears next to it when using the Students and Gradebook tools, so you can add students to the clipboard without leaving the tool you’re working in.
