Update on Missing Assignments Notifications

emailA few weeks ago, we were notified that the weekly missing assignments emails were not working correctly and the following is an update:

Q1. Is it resolved?
A1.  Yes, the customization that provides the weekly email has been fixed and weekly email notifications will resume on Thursday evenings.

Q2. Why did we get email notifications on dates other than Thursdays?
A2.  In order to test if the fixes worked – we needed to run the custom programming, which released notification emails on dates other than Thursdays.

Q3.  Could you tell us more about these weekly email notifications…  who are they delivered to?  and how is it determined who gets the messages?
A3.  Each Thursday night, the system goes through all grade books and looks for “M’s” (which stand for Missing, which are manually marked by teachers.)   It only looks through the current term/quarter, so if there’s a missing assignment from a previous quarter, that won’t be counted.  Once it has a list of which students have a missing assignment,  an email is then generated  to the primary and secondary email addresses of all guardians.

Teachers: Google Drive now integrates with Infinite Campus

infinite-campusgoogle drive
Available Sept 28th for WDM Teachers:  If you added a new assignment to your Grade Book recently, you may have noticed a new feature has been added . . . Google Drive integration!
With this addition, you can now:
  • Link files to the Teacher Notes and videos to the Portal Description of an assignment;
  • Attach a Drive file to an assignment that students can open and interact with based on the teacher’s sharing preferences;
  • Allow students to attach Drive files to assignments in the Portal, either original files or files copied from the teacher’s original.

All sharing and editing permissions  (that you typically do while in Google Drive) can be managed through the assignment instead . Files can also be attached to units and lesson plans for sharing between teachers.

Interested?  Here’s a handout related to Google Drive integration with Infinite Campus.
