        Is there any update on this?

        With the new OneDrive UX enhancements, the rationale of having 'student work stored in their onedrive' no longer holds weight.

        In a school context, all student work should be stored in the Classroom Site. Schools have data retention requirements and keeping the data in the student's OneDrive is not acceptable.

        Classroom should auto-provision every student with a folder in the Classroom Site. Students can still sync that folder with OneDrive, or access it via the OneDrive web interface.

        It's possible, but it takes 14 steps (340 steps per class of 25 students):

        1) Create a folder for your student (i.e. 'James')

        2) Click on the three dots next to the folder

        3) Click 'Share'

        4) Type the student name in the input box

        5) Select the student from the list

        6) Click 'Share'

        7) Click on the three dots next to the folder again

        8) Click 'Share' again

        9) Click 'Shared with'

        10) Click 'Advanced'

        11) Click the checkbox next to 'Class Name Visitors'

        12) Click 'Actions'

        13) Click 'Remove User Permission'

        14) Do it all again for every student.

        I am trying to create a folder as listed below, but cannot find where that is. I need to create individual student folders so each may keep a portfolio of there singing assessments (choir class)

        So student's can store coursework?

        For example: I teach Year 10 Media. I would like my students to be able to store their Photoshop files, assets etc.

        Likewise if they are creating PowerPoints, or any file.

        This way teachers can have 'line of sight' in to student work and give feedback etc.

        Thanks for your feedback. We would love to understand the scenario which is driving the need for individual folders for students

        You can create student folders at the moment, however, it's ridiculously convoluted and time-consuming. Considering it's possible I am sure Microsoft will roll out a solution in the coming days.
