Feature, Enhancement, or Fix
Constructed Response items in Assessments
We have added the ability to add Constructed Response items to your Assessments! Any Progress Learning Constructed Response items and your own authored Constructed Response items can now be found within the Assessment Builder.
Student Report Card
The Student Report Card will show a graphical representation, by student, of progress over time within each subject associated with the students classes. You can access this report via Reports or the Gradebook → Assignments tab by selecting the student's name.
For any assessment or practice test a student attempts, a new Exit button has been added. This button will allow the student to leave any questions unanswered and submit their activity. The student will receive a pop-up message informing them that any unanswered questions will be marked as incorrect upon submission and they may either accept or return to their activity.
Within Instructional Resources or from your Account tab within School Center → Account Information you may now request a 30 day trial for licenses your school is not currently subscribed to! This will give you time to explore all the great content that we provide for a particular subject without being charged.
View Questions Only Assessment Setting
The View Questions Only assessment setting has undergone a small change. The setting will now display how the student answered their questions, but will not show if the question was correct or incorrect. The student will be able to also see point values earned/not earned for the associated questions.
Release Item Details after Due Date
This setting is located within the Assignment Builder and is applicable for all activities except non user-authored assessments. When enabled the students score will be displayed, but no question or answer details will be displayed until the selected due date has passed.
Assignment Level Student TTS & Language Settings
Within the Assignment Builder, you may now choose the level of TTS and/or Language settings for the individual assignment you are delivering to your students.
Student TTS Language Settings
We have made a significant enhancement to our student TTS and Language Settings. We have moved those settings to their own dedicated space within School Center -> Student Settings. You can customize the students' TTS and Language Settings, globally, by content area.
All of our State Practice Tests, SAT/PSAT/ACT/AP Tests and Progress Learning pre-built Diagnostics have been consolidated into a new name titled: Premium Assessments.
Assessment Builder Revamp
Assessment Builder has been reduced to a two-step process for faster assessment building! You will also find a question legend within the builder and more viewing space for your assessment building convenience.

An assignment setting was added to give teachers the option to allow students to retry missed items after completing an assessment or test. Retry score information can be viewed by students and is also visible within the gradebook for teachers.
Students in grades 6-12 are rewarded with tokens for completing activities in Progress Learning. The Arcade gives students the option to play reward games by spending tokens.
