What is Assignment Monitor?

Available to: Frog Admin
The Assignment Monitor is an application that displays assignments that have been issued by all teachers in all departments in the school. Used primarily by the senior management of the school, this useful tool makes it easier to monitor where and when the Frog VLE is being used effectively.
The filter feature allows assignments to be listed for a given category, such as those issued by a specific teacher, subject or student. All of this data can be downloaded as a CSV file for record keeping and creating reports etc.
