The Teacher can see whether tasks have been completed by Students or not, the date of their completion and the grade that Students were given for the task if the task is a graded one.


To view the Assignments statistics, click the title of the corresponding task in the Assignments section. As a result, the information page for the task will be displayed:

As soon as a Student has confirmed that they have completed a task, the Awaiting teacher's review () icon is displayed next to their name.
As soon as the Teacher grades/marks the task, it will be marked by the Complete () icon.


The Teacher of the course themselves can mark the task as completed/incomplete by clicking the icon next to the corresponding user.


The Teacher of the course can also send an e-mail to any Student by clicking its name on the Assignments statistics page.
