School Admin Reporting

New

Today we're releasing all new reporting tools for administrators. School administrators will now have access to a "Dashboard" view and a "Classes" view.

The "Dashboard" view shows high level usage information across a school:

The "Classes" view shows usage and performance metrics for each class at a school:

Closed Classroom Feature

New

Starting today, teachers can now "close" a classroom. Closing a classroom will remove the class and all of its assignments for enrolled students. Teachers will still be able to view the class and can re-open it at any time.

Redesigned Admin Licenses Tab

New

We redesigned the Admin Licenses tab to be more user friendly.

Bug fixes and minor update

Fix

  • Teachers can now specify any due time.
  • Teachers can edit past due assignments without simultaneously extending the deadline.
  • Students now receive a warning about assignment timers informing them that the timer continues even after they exit or logout.
  • The bug causing long load times on images has been fixed.

Minor assignment update and bug fixes

Fix

  • Students who enroll in classes late now receive both active and past assignments.
  • Teachers who have not yet upgraded can create assignments from free topics.
  • The bug causing incorrect stats to be shown on the Classes page has been fixed.

Assignment results improvement

Improvement

The assignment results page now shows the distribution of mastery levels and includes the ability to export results.

Assignment UI improvements and timezone update

New

We moved the Assignment Creation Form into a two step process and changed the timezone from CST to your local timezone.

Edit active and past assignments

New

You can now edit assignment settings after issuing them. Students will only be notified via email if you edit the due date or delete the assignment.

Enable late completion on assignments

New

Starting today, you can choose whether or not to allow late completion on your assignments. The assignments results page will identify which students completed the assignment on time and which ones completed it late.

Assignment update

Improvement

Yesterday, we released a minor update to our assignments feature. From now on, students who join classes late (i.e. after an assignment has been published) will automatically be assigned any existing active assignments.

We're starting a changelog

New

Big news today, we're starting a public changelog so you can always be aware of the updates, improvements and fixes that are made in Albert.

Even though we work on Albert all the time, sometimes it may seem like not much is happening. This changelog is here to improve that very important part of the communication between you and us.

From now on, documentation of all the things we've changed can be found on our public changelog page.

Improvements to assignments + minor bug fixes

Improvement

Improvements:

  • Create an assignment directly from a template's "Actions" menu without first going to the edit page.
  • Change the due date of your assignment to 8 AM, 12 PM, 6 PM, or midnight.
  • See a running tally of how many students will receive the assignment within the assignment creation form.
  • See a running tally of how many questions are in a template within the assignment creation form

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixes a bug that showed the wrong number of answered questions for students
  • Fixes a bug that prevented templates with more than 50 questions from loading
