Teachers can publish assignments for students and parents to view on School Loop. Assignments appear in several places. Click on the name of an assignment to access the detailed information about an assignment and its instructions.
Assignments appear in the following places on your School Loop account:
- Task List: Current Assignments: This is a list of all assignments assigned and/or due during the current week. This list is found on your Portal in the Academics section.
- Portal Calendar: Displays all assignments published there by all teachers. You can choose the week view or month view to see the time period you are interested in by clicking on the appropriate icon at the top of the calendar. Use the arrow buttons at the top left or right of the calendar to move forward or backwards by week or month. To view assignments by due date and/or assign date select the appropriate options from the Show Me tab at the top left of the calendar.
- Classroom: Click on the name of a course from the Academics section of your portal. Current Assignments will appear on the Weekly Calendar on the Home tab, the Curriculum tab, and the Calendar tab.
- Progress Report: All assignments published from the gradebook appear as live links in the progress report. Click the Progress Report link to the right of any course to access the progress report and assignments on it.
All assignments on School Loop include a discussion option for teachers and students to whom they have been assigned. Discussions are an important part of School Loop. Discussions create a safe and secure forum in which students and teachers can communicate about assignments as needed.
Click the arrow to the left of the assignment name in your Task List or calendar, or click on the assignment name to access details including the discussion. Click Discuss to begin a discussion or Reply to This Post or Reply to Main Post to participate in a discussion that is already under way.
Once you have participated in an assignment discussion, it appears in your My Discussions box on the top right-hand side of your Portal Page. You can then easily access and monitor the discussion from this box in the future.
Remember: All discussion posts are made in your REAL NAME and you are responsible for everything you post. It will be viewable by all students and your teacher. Please bring any inappropriate posts to your teacher's attention immediately.
Students can submit work online by using the Submit Work links. The work becomes accessible by the teacher and on the progress report for parents to view as well. See the Submit Work page for detailed instructions.
