How do I use the People tool?

The People tool gives you at-a-glance access to tons of student data points in one simple table that you can use to track student progress and provide help where it’s needed.

Navigate to the People tab using the Main Menu.

From this page you can:

  1. Filter results by grading period if enabled.
  2. Use Display Options to choose what information to display.
  3. Email students and observers.
  4. Filter your students using the funnel (filter) icon.
  5. Add students to the Clipboard.
  6. Open the Clipboard.

Filter your students

 Click the funnel (filter) icon to show/hide a menu that allows you to filter by:

  1. Student name
  2. Quick list or group of students
  3. Minimum score and maximum score
  4. Minimum progress and maximum progress
  5. Critical students, meaning students who have failed two of their last five submissions or they are failing the course, and/or have 30% or more of gradable items past due.
