Buzz: Product Feedback

Homework indicator should be something other than the regular paper icon

Implemented feature idea or fixed bug
Jeremy Walker

We have had a complaint about the homework indicator in BrainHoney for a long time (with a feature request submitted about it) and had hoped that Buzz would fix this.  Unfortunately, Buzz has replicated the BrainHoney behavior.

When a student starts a homework activity, the paper icon shows up in their gradebook view for that item.  This gives the misconception to students and parents that they've submitted this item and that it is waiting for the teacher to grade it.  Our teachers often get angry emails asking why an item hasn't been graded for two weeks, when in reality, the student hasn't submitted any part of the homework.

It would be great if there were a different indicator that showed the item was in progress but hadn't been submitted to the teacher to grade yet or an incomplete indicator.  This would be much more helpful for all involved.

Please let us know if you have further questions about this.

Thanks for considering this request.
