People Tab

You can access the individual student view of their “Your Work” page by clicking on their name on the People tab. Tip: Use Control F to find the student’s name in the roster.

If you want to send the student summary of work to a guardian make sure the guardian emails are entered on the People tab. Note that this only needs to be done once per student. Adding guardians links the information to the student. Any other classes the student is enrolled in will automatically have the guardian listed.

The Email

The student/guardian work summary is emailed as a snapshot of what the individual student view list looks like.

Static List

The email is not dynamic. The assignments are not clickable. The work summary is simply a summary like a paper progress report. If there are any concerns where more details are needed the parent should ask the student to pull up their Google Classroom and click on the Your Work link on the Classwork page.

  1. Is there any way to email a student work summary to all students in the classroom? I want to be able to send these out to all students regularly, like a report card, but doing it individually seems far too tedious.

      1. I noticed I no longer have the ability to do this, and now if I click on email student, it opens a popup with an email window and no work summary anywhere. Is this across Google Classroom or something that might be limited to my district?
