Yes! Follow the instructions below to send an email from the Gradebook to all the students who are missing a particular assignment.

Click on the Gradebook from your LaunchPad home page


If you haven't already, add the "Missing" footer

To see students who've missed assignments, you'll first need to make the "Missing" Footer visible at the bottom of the Gradebook. To add the Missing footer, from the Display Options drop-down menu, select "Visible Footers." If you already have that Footer active, skip down to the section of this article named "Click on the Number next to 'Missing.'"



Select "Missing"

From the Visible Footers menu, put a check mark in the box next to "Missing." This will make the "Missing" footer active at the bottom of your Gradebook.


Select the Assigned Items to see all assignments

If you are using categories go to the next step.


Select the Category

If you are using categories, click on the category that contains the assignment for which you want to send reminders. You can also click on All Assignments.


Click on the number next to "Missing" at the bottom of the Gradebook

The number next to the Missing Footer displays how many students are missing a particular assignment.


Click the Envelope icon

This dialog box shows you the students missing that assignment. Click the envelope icon next to a student's name to send him an email. See below for instructions on how to send emails to multiple students.


To send email to multiple students, click Send Mail to All


Click Send

  1. If you selected "Send Message to All" but only want to send your message to some of the students, then delete the unwanted students from the "To:" line.
  2. After composing your email, click Send to send it.

To add additional students, Click in the white space

If you want to add additional students to your email:

  1. Click the white space next to your student's name and hit the backspace button on your keyboard;
  2. Select another student from the drop-down list;
  3. Click Send when you're done composing your message.
