Updated over a week ago

The Assignment Dashboard has a new look! If you have questions or feedback feel free to reach out to us at

From the Assignment Dashboard, you can monitor class and individual student progress. Check students' progress, quickly grade, and view reports of student performance using the three tabs on the left side of the dashboard.

On this page

Navigate to the Assignment Dashboard

1. From the 'My Assignments' page, click on the assignment.

Note: You can quickly view the percentage of students who have turned in writing and see how many submissions have been graded.

2. Click to open the Assignment Dashboard for a particular class.

'Students' View

By default, you will begin on the 'Students' tab. Here you can view which students have submitted or are currently working on the assignment. You can also grade, view revisions, and check on student scores at-a-glance.

From the top of the 'Students' view, you will see three options:

  • Grade Now: View the class progress on the assignment, including the percent of students who have submitted writing, completed reviews, and the percent of submissions reviewed by the teacher. Click the 'Grade Now' box to grade or give feedback, which will take you to a digital 'stack' of papers, with grading filters and stored comments to save you time.

  • Revision Spotlights: View what percentage of students have submitted revised writing, as well as how many students are successfully responding to comments in their revisions. Click to see revisions side-by-side and provide feedback on how a student revised.

  • Practice Recommendations: View the Proficiency & Recommendation report for this assignment to see student groupings by skill level and differentiate with targeted practice assignments.

Next, you will see 4 tailored views for monitoring student progress and performance.

  • Analysis

    The Analysis view allows teachers to check on student performance by rubric item or question.

    The table will show each student in the class and their writing status. If a student has submitted, you can click the blue link to go straight to the grading view.

    Columns will show the skills for each rubric item or short-response question in the assignment.

  • Feedback

    The Feedback tab shows student scores based on feedback from reviews and AI-powered tools. You can customize this view by using the order and drop-down options at the top of the list.

    The far-left column shows if students have submitted work, are working currently, or have not started the assignment. If a student has submitted, you can click the blue link to view their work.

    Each student will also show scores based on reviews from teachers, peers, and self. You will also see scores from the AI Insights (GrammarAid, RevisionAid, and Originality Check).

Note: RevisionAid is temporarily unavailable while Writable works to improve this student support.

  • Skill/Standard

    The Skill and Standard tabs show student proficiency based on the skills and standards including on the assignment. Using the dropdown at the top-right of the table you can filter to only view those students who are "On Watch" (below proficient) or "On Target" (proficient or above).

'Guide/Grade' View

The Guide/Grade tab allows you to view student submissions and grade them quickly by question.

1. At the top of the Guide/Grade view, first use the dropdown to select which section of your assignment to view and grade. If your assignment has only one section you will not see a dropdown option.

2. Next, cycle through to grade by question. Multiple Choice will be automatically scored, while short response and extended response questions require you to give the student a score. If you have unscored submissions you will see a red number letting you know.
Tip! Click the >> icon to skip ahead to questions with unscored submissions.

3. While scoring a Short Response question you will see an answer key (if provided) at the top of the page.

4. If a student has not yet submitted, you will see their writing without an option to score. Submitted writing will show the rubric item and scoring options. Students who have not yet started on the question will show as blank.

5. Once you have scored submissions, click 'Submit Completed Reviews' in the top right corner.

6. If you have an Extended Response section in your assignment, student submissions will be graded by clicking the 'Review this submission' link at the bottom right of the student's writing. This will take you to the grading view where you can score each rubric item, leave comments on the student's writing and rubric, and leave audio or video feedback. Click here to learn more about grading with a full rubric.

'Settings' View

The final tab in the Assignment Dashboard is the Settings view. From here you can adjust peer and self-review requirements, enable AI-powered feedback tools, and collect papers from your students. Click here to read more about adjusting your assignment settings.
