Did you know you can closely monitor the work your students are doing in Schoology? Obviously, you can see the documents they submit or the discussion posts they make. But, you can also see the last time they logged into Schoology, what they have completed in a folder of content, where they left off, and more.
First, check out the analytics button in the left navigation. There is a lot of useful information here, including when (timestamped) a student last accessed and logged into Schoology and how much time they spent in it. If you then click on a particular student’s name, you’ll get more information about assignments you have created and whether or not they interacted with them.
Another option is to click on the “student progress” button found at the top center of your material’s page. This will give you an overview (percentage-wise) of how much your students have completed in your class. If you go into a specific folder and then click on this button, it gives you a percentage according to that folder’s content. This is a GREAT way to track student completion, see who is left behind or not doing work, etc. You can then click on a student’s name in the list to get even more broken-down info about them and your course.
Finally, you can always see things from a particular student’s point of view and what they see. Simply click the “options” button under your course profile –> and click ‘view course as” then choose the student. You will now be seeing everything in your course from the student’s perspective.
