New for LTI Users!
If you use Canvas or Schoology, administrators can now obtain the Key, Secret, and XML snippet directly from admin mode. Find it in your Account Menu > Settings > Integrations.
Updates to Clever and ClassLink Rostering
Previously, users who were rostered via Clever or ClassLink could not be reactivated unless they were brought in via the sync process. By request, we've made it possible to activate users who have become inactive via the sync.
The main purpose for this update is to allow the activation of staff who are now administrators, but are no longer rostered as teachers in Clever/ClassLink.
Once a user is activated, they will no longer be impacted by the sync process. To reconnect them to the Clever/ClassLink sync, they will need to be manually deactivated. During the following sync, they will be "reconnected."
"Disconnected" users are noted with a slash through the Clever or ClassLink icon.
Updates to Assignment Sharing
Based on user feedback, we've removed the "Add" button to the Assignment Sharing modal. Previously, users selected who they were sharing with, the permissions and had to click an "Add" button. To share assignments, users will not simply select who they are sharing the assignment with and what permissions the user should have. Changes will be saved automatically!
Upgraded Standards Filtering Experience
Thanks to additional user feedback, we have upgraded the standards filtering during assignment creation.
To find standards, users will:
1. Select the Source
2. Select the Subject and Grade
3. Optional: Enter search terms
Great news! The standards filters are "sticky" - now, teachers can more easily navigate to their favorite standards sources and subjects when creating their assignments.
Full Page Open Response Question Types
Users can now create Open Response Questions with 1-10 rows of text - or - they can conveniently fill the rest of the current page or a full page of text. This response type is teacher-scored and the addition of Full Page allows teachers to use this for essay responses.
