Students can submit work for any gradebook assignment via School Loop directly to the teacher’s account. An archive is kept with date and time stamps of each submission for the student and the teacher.
When a student clicks on the name of an assignment from their portal calendar or from the Task List: Current Assignments on their Dashboard, they will find two Submit Work links: Locker and Device.
After clicking Locker, the student can browse for the file or link in their locker (files can be in any format and can include Word documents, PDF files, media files, etc.). Links can go to any outside web address, or even a direct link to a Google document.
Once the file or link has been submitted, it will appear in the Dropbox at the top of the student page. Each submission is displayed with a date and time stamp, a link to the assignment to which it was submitted, and the title of the work submitted. If a student resubmits the work, it will overwrite the previous submissions.
Using School Loop Documents
With our School Loop Document feature, students can turn in work from within School Loop without having to upload external documents. This is particularly good news for iPad and iPhone users, since uploading files from the device is not supported by mobile Safari. School Loop Documents are a good way for students to submit links for work that they have created on other sites. Teachers can view and grade turned in School Loop documents right from the assignment or the student scoresheet.
- From the student profile, go to the Locker icon at the top of the portal.
- Click the Add pull-down menu.
- Choose New Document from the pull-down menu.
- Name the document and type your content.
- Click Save & Exit.
Note: Once the document is in the locker, it can be submitted in the same way as any other file in the student locker. School Loop documents can be distinguished from other uploaded files by the document icon and the SL document type.
Each document can only be submitted once, but the student can go back and edit the document by using the Edit button on the bottom left. Teachers will be able to view updated versions of the turned in document.
Students can see the date of the version they are viewing on the top left and can choose to view any saved version using the View Version pull-down menu on the right.
Note: Check to see if your assignment was created as a calendar-only assignment. Gradebook Plus students cannot submit files to calendar-only assignments.
If the submission was successful, the students will receive a message indicating that their work has been submitted successfully.
