The Formative teacher dashboard is a great place to get a bird's-eye-view of your assignments and classes. By understanding what the different icons, symbols, and numbers mean, you can see which classes need what, in a flash!
Co-Teachers (Premium teams, departments, schools, and districts only): The people icon attached to your class abbreviation lets you know that one or more teachers have shared access to the students and formatives assigned to this class.
Google Classroom sync: The Google icon attached to your class abbreviation lets you know that the class was synced with Google Classroom. Changes can be made easily by re-syncing with Google Classroom.
Open Assignments: The lightning bolt symbol means that the formative is currently open for students to complete and submit. All assignments default to open unless you change the settings.
Closed Assignments: The padlock symbol means that the formative has been closed to students. They may no longer access the formative.
Scheduled Open (Premium feature only): The green calendar icon means that the formative is currently open for students to complete and submit, and has been scheduled to open and close automatically.
Scheduled Closed (Premium feature only): The red calendar icon means that the formative closed automatically at the scheduled time assigned by the teacher. They will no longer have access to the formative.
Scores Returned: The suitcase icon means that scores have been returned to students. They will be able to see their scores based on the settings chosen by the teacher.
Single Number: A single number in the middle of a box indicates the number of students who have submitted that assignment. This number will appear in classes where the formative was assigned to the entire class.
Fraction (X/X): A fraction will appear when a formative has only been assigned to some students in a class. The first number will tell you how many students have submitted, the second represents the number of students to whom the formative was assigned.
