In the Sapling App, your progress on each activity is indicated by icons with words instead of being indicated by the color and style of text.

iOS Users

  • In Progress: An activity icon is displayed in green if you have started an activity, the due date has not passed and you still have attempts remaining on one or more questions. If there is a due date set, these scores are not included in totals, since they represent your score so far on that assignment. For open-ended assignments (those without any due date) the scores are included in totals.
  • Past Due with Attempts Remaining: An activity icon is displayed in light orange if the due date has passed but you still have attempts remaining on one or more questions. If your instructor set the assignment to allow for late submissions, you would be able to continue working on this assignment although it may have points deducted each day that it is late.
  • Completed: An activity icon is displayed in light grey if you have finished all questions (by getting them correct, giving up or running out of attempts) or if the due date has passed. These scores are included in totals.

These two scenarios display the same way in a web browser as in the Sapling App (i.e., the app does not display icons).

  • Score not available: If you have not yet opened an activity and the due date has not passed, your score shows as a dash (-). In addition, if your instructor has chosen certain grading policies, your score does not show until after the due date.
  • Hand-graded activities: Scores entered directly by your instructor appear in black.

To access grades in the mobile app, simply tap on the Grades button at the top of the screen after entering a course.

Android Users

On Android, the behavior is largely the same as in iOS:

  • In Progress: An activity icon is displayed in light grey if you have started an activity, the due date has not passed and you still have attempts remaining on one or more questions. If there is a due date set, these scores are not included in totals, since they represent your score so far on that assignment. For open-ended assignments (those without any due date) the scores are included in totals.
  • Past Due with Attempts Remaining: An activity icon is displayed in red if the due date has passed but you still have attempts remaining on one or more questions. If your instructor set the assignment to allow for late submissions, you would be able to continue working on this assignment although it may have points deducted each day that it is late.
  • Completed: An activity icon is displayed in green if you have finished all questions (by getting them correct, giving up or running out of attempts) or if the due date has passed. These scores are included in totals.
