While Schoology lacks a direct method to view the in-progress student work for an assignment using the Kami integration, you can still open and edit the files through your Google Drive, as all of the work is shared back to you in the "Shared with Me" folder

Setting up in-progress grading for the Schoology integration:

Schoology is a little more awkward to set up as the files aren’t shared into a specific folder. Instead, they are saved in the Shared with me section. We recommend having the file name saved in a separate file, to make locating the files related to that assignment easier.

1. Open Google Drive.

2. Click into the Search Bar at the top of the file.

3. Click the dropdown arrow to the right of the search bar.

4. Set the location to the Shared with me folder.

5. Paste the relevant file name into the Search Bar and click"Search".

6. Locate the student whose work you wish to view from the name at the front of the file.

7. Right-click on the file and select Open with then Annotate with Kami.

Once the file is open you are ready to start providing your feedback to that student.

If you are not seeing the "open with Kami" option, you may need to click on "Connect more apps" at the bottom of that "Open with" Menu, and add Kami as a connected app.

Tips & tricks for giving in progress feedback

The Screen Capture tool for quick demos: If you need to demonstrate the answer to a particular question, but don’t want to leave the full answer or draw over the student’s work, an easy method is using the Screen Capture Comment tool. Using this tool you can film your screen as you explain a question and attach it as a comment on the side of the student’s work. When you have finished filming your demo you can erase any annotations you made so they are not in the way of you’re student’s work.

Using the Signature Tool for progress stamps: You can use the Signature Tool to give your students fun Stamps. Simply upload an image into the tool, such as a Good Work stamp or a Tick icon. Use the quick-select menu to quickly drop that image onto the page without having to re-upload it via the menu each time.

If you run into any issues with accessing or annotating the student's work, please let us know via support@kamiapp.com with screenshots of any error messages, and the name of the file, and we'll be happy to help!
