If you have multiple students enrolled in the district, you can click on each student to view their details.
The Calendar displays data in three different modes, Assignments, Schedule, and Attendance.
For Assignments and Attendance, dots display below dates that have data. Select a mode and date to view data for that day.
In Assignments mode, a button displays to show the Weekly Overview, which shows all assignments for the selected week.
The Weekly View filters the Calendar to show a student's assignments for a week in a simple, single page overview.
In this overview, view assignments for the week and see scores. Assignments display for the calendar day on which they are Due.
Flagged assignments, such as the Missing assignment above, are also shown. Scored assignments are shown with the points possible, if applicable, or the percentage or rubric score earned.
