The student (and parent/observer) home page has a card for each course the student is enrolled in. To open the course, click the desired course card.
Note: You can also navigate directly to the course gradebook by clicking the bar graph icon at the bottom of the card.
Course Home Page
The course opens in window that has links and important information. From here, users can navigate to all parts of the course.
The course header has the course title, the teacher names, and the time remaining in the course.
On the right side of the header, information on student performance including the current course grade and the progress in the course is displayed. Note that the progress bar reflects the percentage of assignments that the student has completed. As teachers add assignments to the course throughout the year, the progress may seem to move backwards.
Next to the course grade are two icons. The graph icon will take the user to the course gradebook. The eye icon allows users to hide their course grade (if, for example, they don't want a neighbor to see it when collaborating).
Directly below the header is the course agenda (if the teacher is using this feature). The agenda provides an overview of the day's classroom activities. From the agenda, users can:
- See the current day's agenda
- Use the arrows to see old or upcoming agendas
- Click the go to today button to navigate back to the current agenda
Below the agenda, students will see current projects. These are projects students are currently working on. The progress bar shows how much of the project they have worked through. Note that the progress bar reflects the percentage of assignments that the student has completed within this project. If teachers add items to the project throughout its duration, this percentage could change.
Activities and To-Do List
Below current projects, students will see the activities and to-do list tabs. The activities tab shows a student's last viewed activities as well as upcoming activities. Users can click on the activity titles to open them. In addition, items on the To-Do List will display activities with due dates in several additional scenarios.
- Activities that have been allowed a retry and the due date or grace period has not expired.
- Activities that have been automatically assigned a zero for being past due, but the student can still complete the activity because the grace period has not expired.
- Activities in Continuous courses
The to-do list tab has an indicator of how many assignments are due soon. By default, the To-do displays activities with due dates coming up within seven days. By clicking the the to-do list tab, users can see:
- A search bar to help students easily find an assignment they are looking for
- A list of assignments arranged in the order of which is due first
