Learn why new students don't show up in your previously assigned assessments.

When a new student is added to your class in the middle of a term, they will need to be added to any previously assigned assessments or grades. That is because the student was not on the student list for the class at the time of the original assessment. Those assigned lists do not update unless a teacher makes a change. There is a quick solution to add them to any assessment they will be responsible for.

If you have a student that transferred from another section or class, here are a few other things to consider.

Viewing the Student's Work

From your assessments view of the gradebook, you will see each assessment that you've assigned to the class. The new student will show in your student list, but there will be no active cells in the assessment columns to add a score.

The student will see their classes listed and have access to any previous class board posts. Their gradebook will be empty, and their assessment list will be entirely blank. They will only see what has been assigned since they joined the class.

Using Manage Assignees

The assessments need to be assigned to them in the Manage Assignees section of the assigned assessments. 

  • Step 1: Navigate to your Assessments module.

  • Step 2: Select the Assigned tab.

  • Step 3: Choose the class the student is rostered in.

  • Step 4: Select the ellipsis next to an assessment.

  • Step 5: Select Manage Assignees.

  • Step 6: Check the empty boxes next to the student's name for each assessment you need to be assigned to them.

  • Step 7: The student should now see all assessments they've been assigned when they login to their account and head to their assessments module. The student can either take these assessments, or you can give them grades manually by grading the assessment or adding points in the assessments view of the gradebook.
