  1. Create an administrative dashboard

    The need for senior leaders to be able to monitor the assignments to students is of great importance to not only knowing if Classroom is being used but also to ensure that students are being set assignments and to be able to export that data to analyse it further. Or even a direct link to Power Bi.

    Ideally you would be able to see at a glance the number of assignments issued, over due assignments, a break down by year group or subject. And the ability to export the raw data, obviously without any attachments.

  2. Integrate Office Mix with classroom assignment

    Teachers copy the link of office mix into Microsoft Classroom Assignment module. After students completed their office mix, the results would be automatically loaded into Microsoft Classroom Assignment module.

    This could help the teachers and students to stay in one platform to review their results.

  4. Enable assignment distribution across multiple classes

    Using the OneNote Class Notebook add-in a teacher can easily distribute a page across multiple classes. However, if the page is created as an assignment to sync with Microsoft Classroom, it can only be assigned to one class at a time. That requires the teacher to go to each class notebook separately and create/edit the assignment.
    There should be cross notebook distribution for assignments, like there is for pages.

  5. Team assignment in classroom

    Returning teamwork assignments. When assignment is planned to do as a small team, ex 2-4 students, students should have option to connect all team members to assignment when he or she returns the assignment. When the teachers grades the assignment, grade should be visible for all connected team members.

  10. Classroom App for Teachers

    I downloaded the Classroom App on my iPad and iPhone, but it appears to be only for students. I would love to see an app developed for the teacher. Many times I grade on the go, and this would be quite helpful.

  12. TurnItIn Enabled Assignment Submission

    Plagiarism checking assignments via a direct connection to TurnItIn or other similar services would be great. This would allow us to completely eliminate requiring a third party LMS and only use Classroom.

  13. Teacher comments using markup (annotation) and audio before they return the work

    Though NoteBook can do some of this, it would be nice to be able to view a student's work and add annotation (draw markup) and audio commentary on any document (word, excel, etc.) before returning the work. Even better, allow this on tablets (iOS and Android). We currently collect PDF's and use an iOS Annotation App to do this.

  16. Add 'School' field so Principals/teachers can see other classes in their school

    Add a field for 'School' to allow for enhanced capabilities in the future.

    Our tenant has 130+ schools. We would like to be able to define which classes belong to which school.

    Down the track Classroom should be able to provide Principals (or teachers) with the ability to see all classes in their school.

    Likewise when Microsoft Staffroom comes in to play teachers can easily access 'Staffroom's from their own school.

    This would allow for better management overall and allow the platform to be expanded beyond a 'SharePoint/Groups' add-on.

    v-rickma responded

    Scott,

    Can you tell me which method you are using to import your data?

    CSV, Powerschool or Clever?

  17. Reuse Assignment

    The option to reuse a previously created assignments. Teachers will often create an assignment for one class, but this may need to be reused at a later date or given to another class. Rather than setting the same homework/assignment again it would be good to allow the teachers to reuse an existing assignment.

  18. Don't email teachers in class conversations

    Currently teachers receive every email sent in class conversations. This is can be a big turn off for teachers adopting conversations as a place for students to collaborate and share ideas.

    Do not send emails to a users inbox for conversations. Rather, keep conversations contained to the class conversation window.

    The best behaviour:

    If a teacher starts a conversation (or announcement), all students receive the email. All subsequent replies are contained to the class conversations window.
