Release briefings are distributed whenever changes are made to Edgenuity that affect the daily activities of our educators or students. These changes can be new features, enhancements or improvements to current features, fix bugs, or functionality that otherwise impacts your experiences while working with Edgenuity. New changes are announced on your home page in red text as they are released, and the historical list of updates is here for your convenience.
Curriculum changes are not located here due to the number of courses we have available for use. Please refer to the release briefing document for each course which can be found by navigating to the Course Structures page from the Courses tab. Also, check out the Course Updates page for information on release dates of our courses.
Current Release Notes
NEW! 2022-02-08 Pretesting - Editable Time Limit
When enabled, educators can now set a time limit for the pretest. By default, students will have 60 minutes to complete the test. As with other edit course options features, this can be changed at an individual student level, bulk courses, and school-wide level.
2022-01-17 The Attendance and Activity Log (Beta) pages have been removed as the Beta phase as ended.
2021-12-08 Attendance and Activity Log (Beta)
This new report displays the usage time and number of activities completed for all students at the current school. The Speed Radar feature, which can be toggled on and off, highlights activities where the students' progress was faster than expected. This can be a sign of low engagement with the coursework or, in some cases, indicates the use of cheating software.
The report can be expanded for any student to show attendance and activity data on a course-by-course basis. Drilling down into daily data for a given course provides details of each activity within that course. Daily idle time is also shown for each student in the expanded view.
