Frequently asked questions about the Missing Assignments messages


Default Settings

  • What counts as a Missing Assignment?
    • An assignment is considered missing in Schoolytics and will appear on the Missing Assignments Report when:
      • The due date has passed AND the assignment has not been submitted by the student
      • The assignment has been returned without a grade or a grade of 0 by the teacher.
  • Are due dates required?
    • Yes, due dates are required. In Schoolytics, missing assignments are based on due dates in Google Classroom. 
    • If an assignment does not have a due date, it will not be included in the Missing Assignments Report.

Filters and Customization

  • How can I filter or exclude assignments from the Missing Assignments email?
    • Use the filters at the top of the Missing Assignments Report table to customize which assignments are sent.

  • For example, a student may have 20 missing assignments for the entire semester, but only 3 missing assignments in the last 30 days.  
  • Can I modify the message or assignments that appear on the list for each student?
