The past few days (Jan 13-17) Google Classroom is not working properly. I teach photography, and usually when the students turn in .jpg photo files, they automatically save in my Google Drive. This makes it easy to view, print, and Photoshop them. Now, students are either getting an error message, or if they files do go into Google Classroom, they are stuck there. Not only do they not transfer to my Google Drive folder, they cannot be downloaded. Please help! It's the end of the semester and grades are due! Thank you.

In the reporting I can get for google classroom I can see the number of enrolments in a class. Is there anywhere I can see the number of unique students logging in to the whole of our google classroom domain in a month?

Are all having issues where students can't open files? I think it is a major issue but checking to be sure.

Hello all - I have a teacher who is having a weird GC issue, and I'm wondering if any of you have had similar problems. In her teacher view, the students' submitted work is showing up as "Drive file," and when the teacher clicks the document, she is getting a "No Preview Available" message. (image attached)

First off, let me say I love classroom. I have used it since beginning of 2015. Anyway, some features I would love to see in future updates:

1. Ability to set semesters/quarters for grade book (makes grading a lot easier)
2. Ability to integrate rubrics to assignments/questions for each student so it's easy to grade assignments in the interface
3. More app integration like blogger, recap, video apps
4. Student grouping options to make differentiation easier
5. Dedicated quiz/test creator in-app allowing teachers to quickly create assessments on the fly.

Btw, I like all updates so far. Keep it up!!

In Google Classroom, if student moves from one class to another, can their work to follow him/her into the new class?

If a teacher deletes the student from the old class, would he/she lose all past work? Teacher wants to ensure that every time she looks at the old student it doesn't show "late" work.

She just moved 8 students to different class periods and wants to ensure that this will work smoothly in Classroom.

Our 7th grade teachers want to use Classroom but some Math teachers have stated that Classroom will not work for them. If you teach middle school math and/or Algebra I, could you please share how use use Classroom? if you recommend any Add-ons or Extensions in Chrome, that would be useful.

My school is not on GAFE but I want to start using Google Apps and Google classroom. Can I set it up for my computer lab? I have 16 computers so I can set up an account for each. I have 6 classes that come through my room. Any ideas?

You won't be able to use Google Classroom without an Google EDU domain. If you want to use it, I would talk to your school to see if you could get it set up.

I have two students in one class who moved their Class folder in Drive out of the Classroom folder. They stopped being able to open attachments for Classroom assignments as a result.

I have had the teacher remove them from the classroom and re-add them several times, hoping to force the folder to be re-created, but this has not happened.

They are only having this issue with this one teacher, all their other Classes are working fine.

We are a BYOD district, and they have personal devices (Chromebook and Macbook). So technically, I cannot do too much troubleshooting on their devices, other than to assure that they are signed in to Chrome using their District email address and that Chrome is up to date.

Anyone have any suggestions for how to force that classroom folder to be re-created?

It shouldn't effect her class in any way other than the folder will be renamed. Hopefully she can let you give it a shot :D I'll be curious to know what actually fixes it though.

Has anyone figured out how to do repeated assignments in classroom (like on calendar). I have weekly check-in times with students, where they are required to complete certain tasks, review their work with me, etc. I LOVE that I can individualize it now by picking out specific students, but I want to have it repeat for that student, so that I don't have to enter 32 different weekly meetings over the course of an 18 week semester. I would just use calendar, but I do actually have assignments for the students during that time.

I'm wondering how teachers who use mastery based assessment indicate level of mastery in GC? #TTOG

When you ask a question in Google Classroom do all the students see the responses of all students live or does the answer go to the teacher only? We are wanting to have students respond to a question but not see each other's responses until we as the teachers see them so that they are creating authentic responses. Thanks!
