  1. "preview" submissions while grading

    Instead of having to open the submission in a new window, it would be nice to view it all in one tab, such as when you preview a document in outlook. This could speed up grading.

    • Admin Portal Tools

      Administrative tool/report by campus and/or to see what students are associated with which teachers. Also, as a sys admin, it would be helpful to be able to "impersonate" a user to see what a teacher sees.

      • 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.

        • Create folders for assignments that you would like to make available for long periods of time.

          Create folders so that assignments can be organized and reused year to year or you can make long term assignments.

          • Same feature set for Classroom Notebook and Class Notebook

            Integrate features of the class notebook with the class notebook in classroom. Even though they are both class notebooks, the one in Microsoft classroom is “different” (this is what I was told by a Microsoft person on a webinar when I asked this question) – I see an update was recently made so that teachers can now lock the collaboration space through Microsoft classroom. All the tools for the new class notebook tab don’t work with the class notebooks from classroom (specifically - add/remove student teacher)

            • Allow students to comment on assignments

              If I give a student a choice on the format of how they respond to an assignment, I would like for them to make a comment on the assignment when they submit it. For example, some students prefer to complete work directly into OneNote. They have no way of telling me that they have done this, but simply have to click the submit button. I then have to deduce where I can find their work. Other students can complete in e.g. Word or PowerPoint and can attach the file for me to mark.

              • add a standards based grading feature.

                The current grading feature is too primitive to be useful. The ability to assess several learning targets or standards on a single assignment is necessary.

                • Numeric Class Icons

                  I would like to see numeric icons 1 through 10 or so to represent the class periods. The image icons look fine, but it is hard to mentally sort your consecutive classes by apply, book, etc compared to 1, 2, 3, 4... representing class periods.

                  • Feedback/Correcting in Classroom

                    You need to make it easier to give feedback/correcting assignments in Classroom. If you are going to have an app act as an LMS, you need to make it fully functional...especially if the handout is a PDF. ClassNotebook is way too hard to get kids into and figure out how to get the assignment. Classroom is on the right track but is so limited in its capabilities.

                    • Allow Classroom class notebooks to be managed like normal class notebooks

                      At present it is not possible to manage class notebooks created through Classroom. Class notebooks created outside of classroom can be managed by going to the class notebook app and selecting "Manage notebooks". From there it is possible to do things like add a teacher-only section, provide access to parents and guardians, etc.
                      However, class notebooks created by Classroom do not show up in the list of notebooks that can be managed, so it is not currently possible to use any of these features with these notebooks, which seems strange.
                      Why not have class notebooks created by Classroom able to…

                      • Teacher Calendar

                        I would like to see a separate calendar. My work calendar is my primary calendar, but all of my assignments are now showing up on my Outlook calendar as well. I am able to delete them, but they will randomly reappear.

                        • Email Notifications Control

                          Will students and teachers always receive an email when a comment is made on work turned-in through the classroom?

                          For example, I grade a student's work and add a comment like "great job."  The student sees the comment on the assignment in classroom but also gets a message that says "great job" in their email.  Same if a student posts a comment to a teacher on an assignment.  The teacher will have a message in an email as well as on the classroom page that has the comment.  I can see this being very cumbersome for both teachers and students…

                          • 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.

                            • If a class is not active, disable access to the class from Webmail for the students

                              If a class is inactive, students do not see that class if the they go to classroom. However, they can get to the conversation, files, calendar, and class notebook from Webmail group link, as they are member of that class. So by deactivating a class a teacher is only removing students access to assignments.

                                    • Posting Grades in Classroom

                                      Is there a way when you enter grades for an assignment in Classroom that you can enter ALL the grades and then hit "Post Grades" for the entire class instead of have to click "Post Grade" after each grade is entered?
