New updates to the itslearning learning management system (LMS) aim to help K-12 teachers to assess and grade their students during the 2017-18 school year. Among the LMS’ enhancements is a streamlined grading workflow, a new capacity for annotating student submissions online and the ability to easily see students’ assignment status, to search and share assessment activities, and to deliver tests and see grades on any device.

The updated grade book features enhanced data entry and it provides greater ease of use on mobile devices such as tablets. When an assignment or task deadline passes without a submittal from a student, that individual entry in the grade book will automatically become shaded red so teachers can see what’s overdue at a glance. 

itslearning will also allow teachers to use their browser to annotate student submissions in common file types such as MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint as well as Google Sheets, Google Docs and Google Slides. 

The LMS’ new assignment tool will allow students to submit assignments via a cloud service such as Google Drive or OneDrive, which means that they will be able to submit an assignment, or even take a test, on any device of their choosing.
