Welcome to Classwork, your tool for reviewing and scoring all student digital submissions in the curriculum.

To access, click “Classwork” on the bar near the top of your screen.

Classwork is organized by class section with two tabs in Amplify Math for main navigation. The Activities tab collects class level submissions, while the Portfolios tab focuses on an individual student.

The Activities Tab

To get started, choose a class section with the dropdown in the top left corner of the screen. You can then navigate to the unit, chapter (sub-unit), and lesson you’d like to review. Each submittable activity is represented in Classwork by a row, and activities will only appear in this tab if at least one student has submitted them. You can scan each row for general information, or click the “v” arrow button to expand a class summary for the activity.

Each row showcase the following information:

  • Activity: Grouped by the type of activity it is. The varieties presented could be: Warm-Up, Activity #, Summary, Exit Ticket, Lesson Practice, and Assessment

  • Submissions: This is a roll-up of how many students out of this class has submitted their work.

  • Last Submission: This shows you when the last submission was for this activity.

  • Due Date: The assigned due date for this activity, if any, from the “Assign” feature.

  • Class Average: A roll-up of the class average on the assignment

  • Manual Scores: This column highlights how many students are waiting for a teacher to manually score their submissions.

Class Summary Tables

Upon expanding an activity, you’ll see a summary table for the entire class. Each student is represented by a row, with columns for the submission status, the student’s total score for that activity, the autoscore points they received, and a manual score column.

  • The Autoscore column is an aggregation of all of the auto scored points students have received across multiple problems in this activity. Auto scoring of student responses will take place once students “Submit” the last card of their activity.

  • The Manual Score column indicates individual problems in the activity that require manual scoring from the teacher.

  • The “+” icon in the Manual Score column indicates a student’s response for that problem needs teacher scoring. Teachers can click on this icon area to review student work and give it a manual score.

There are five possible submission statuses:

  • Not Started: The student does not have any in-progress work for this activity. This is the default status.

  • In Progress: The student has begun working on this activity but has not yet clicked the “Submit” button on the last card of the activity.

  • Handed In: The student has submitted the activity for teacher review. Any auto scoring of student responses will take place upon submitting the last card of the activity.

  • Handed In Late: the student has submitted the activity past the teacher's determined due date.

  • Revising: The student has previously handed in the activity and, now, has saved but unsubmitted changes. The student should click “Update” to confirm their changes.

  • Resubmitted: The student has clicked “Update” and resubmitted the activity.

The Portfolios Tab

The Portfolios tab allows you to focus on a single student, which is particularly useful for conferencing moments. Select a student with the dropdown near the top left corner of the screen. Then, filter their portfolio of Amplify work by content, activity type, or submission status.

Your students will see a nearly identical Portfolio view in My Work, making it easy for everyone to stay on the same page about what’s expected.

Submission Notifications

You will receive a notification in the bell at the top right corner of the screen each time students click “Submit” or “Update” on a submittable activity. Notifications are gathered across classes and will be retained for 14 days, with the most recent notifications at the top of the list. It is not currently possible to dismiss notifications or mark them as read.

Clicking a link for an activity changed by multiple students will redirect you to the Class Summary Table for the corresponding activity, so you can choose where to begin review. Clicking a link for an activity changed by one student will take you directly to the student’s review screen for that activity.

Reviewing Student Work

To quickly jump into the review process, click any row in the Activities tab to begin with the first student in your roster. Alternatively, you can expand the activity and click an individual student’s name from the class table.

The review screen conveniently displays student responses on the left with scoring tools in the panel to the right.

Scores

Each problem for an activity might have auto scored components and/or manual scored components.

  • For components that are auto-scored, it will be automatically scored once a student has “Submit” the last card of an activity.

  • For components that require manual scoring, it will have an “+” icon on the right scoring panel and a “+ Score” tag on the student response. These help indicate when a teacher needs to input a score for the student’s response. Teachers will have an option to select a score from the dropdown in the right scoring panel.

  • The max potential score for each component is pre-determined by the curriculum and can not be adjusted at this time.

Print and Export

You may need to transfer Amplify work and scores to your district grading software or LMS. There are a variety of ways to conveniently print or export editable CSVs within Classwork.

Export Multiple Activities

You can export multiple activities to a CSV simultaneously with the “Bulk Export” button in the bottom left corner of the Activities tab. Use the checkboxes next to each activity to make a selection for the export.

Export Individual Activities

To export individual activity, use the “Export” button at the bottom of the expanded activity table. This will create a CSV with a column for each column of the class summary table.

Print Work for the Entire Class

To print many or all student responses for an activity, click the “Print” button at the bottom of the expanded activity table. Checkboxes will display next to each student’s name, and you can choose to print some or all student work accordingly.

Print Work for an Individual Student

To print work for an individual student, you can use the print feature from the class summary table or, you can print off from the student’s review screen.

To get to the review screen, find the activity and navigate to the student’s name. You can click a student name from the expanded class grid as a shortcut. Once you’re on the review page, click the print button in the activity header.
