Schoolwork is a new iPad app built to help teachers both save time and maximize each student’s potential. With Schoolwork, it’s easy to share class materials, get students to a specific activity in an app, collaborate with students, and view student progress. Teachers can easily create and send out a class announcement, a study reminder, or an assignment. They then get progress information on how their students are doing on their assignments, making it easier for them to personalize instruction to each individual student. Students get one central place to see assignments, submit work, and view their own progress. Share anything with Handouts • Use Handouts to easily share a homework assignment, study reminder, or class announcement with students • Add PDFs, documents, web links, photos, videos, or even links to specific activities in an app • Give students an easy way to submit a final project and demonstrate their understanding Assign specific activities within an app • With apps optimized for Schoolwork you can review an app's list of assignable activities, then easily assign one or more to the class • With a single tap, students are brought directly to the assigned activity within the app • For activities you assign in Schoolwork you’ll be able to view student progress, including quiz scores, points earned, and time spent Keep students focused and organized • Students have one place to go to see their announcements and assignments • They can see what they have coming due this week across all their classes • In Pages, Keynote, and Numbers, and other supported apps, students can submit homework right from within the app Collaborate and give real-time feedback • Easily collaborate with individual students or with the entire class in just a few taps • Add comments to students’ work while they’re working on an assignment • Use the new Drawing and Smart Annotation features in Pages, Keynote, and Numbers to add feedback directly to students’ documents • Use Apple Pencil or your finger to mark up PDFs, photos, and more Personalize Instruction • See a holistic view of a student including submitted work and progress in apps, all in one place • Use student progress to find students who may need an extra challenge, or extra support • Tailor Handouts to a single student or a group of students based on individual needs Privacy Schools are required to opt in to Schoolwork’s student progress feature using Apple School Manager. Student progress is only recorded for teacher-assigned activities that are completed while using a school-provided Managed Apple ID. All student progress data is encrypted in transit and at rest. If a school does not opt in, teachers and students can still use Schoolwork without this feature. In order to improve the Schoolwork product as well as help your school understand how students and teachers are using Schoolwork, Apple collects non-personally identifiable data about your Schoolwork activity that may also be shared with your school. This data will not be used for any other purpose and does not include personally identifiable information.



  • Locked out

    By Roniniku
    How can the app be reviewed or promoted to administration when it can’t be viewed, even in a test mode? We don’t have education resellers and are unable to set up an education account. Apple USED TO BE an education-centred company, but now unfortunately seems to only care about money.
  • Homeschoolers left out

    By Never@Home_Mom
    I was really looking forward to switching to an Apple solution for our homeschools (I have teens), but no can do. So will be sticking with Schoology. 4/28/2019 update.... still wishing I could use this with my teens.
  • Works Fine for Me

    By Mathgeek215
    Try it with Math Galaxy’s apps. Works well with those.
  • Open app for everyone please

    By dareviewer2050
    I will review the app better if you could open the app for everyone not just schools.
  • Just stop complaining.

    Don’t come here to review an app that you can’t use.
  • Has potential

    By floaner
    This app has potential to be great, but isn’t quite there yet. It does take time for handouts to post and for assignments to show up. I would also like the ability to grade assignments in the app. I still like using it, but there are some improvements that need to be made.
  • A Real Review

    By AmeanJedi
    Most of the reviews so far on this have nothing to do with the quality of the software. This is an actual review of the app from a school that is using it exclusively for students to submit work. My school actually purchased all brand new education iPads, showcased by Apple this past March, for all students. When you think of something that Apple has made, you think high-quality right? I for one have always thought this. I was very excited for this app to be able to use for my school and my students. But it is riddled with bugs. When the app is working it works wonderfully. There are too many issues however. When teachers post handouts or students submit an item, the assignment takes too long to appear in student/teacher apps. Sometimes it takes an entire day for it to appear in the student app. I have seen this firsthand. Student progress takes too long to or does not appear at all for some in apps that have been assigned through Schoolwork(i.e. Kahoot!). When adding new students through Apple school manager to a class they do not appear in that class until the teacher and the students have signed out of their iPads Apple ID and signed back in. This is a fix for most issues until Apple squashes these bugs. When students submit work, it does not show in the teacher app that they completed the assignment. I also have two teachers who posted a handout Two weeks ago and it is still trying to publish. These are all bugs that Apple is currently trying to fix after talking to tech-support. This app has become more of a headache and a burden to teachers and students than it has been a tool for the classroom. I love Apple, and love that they are passionate about education. However I believe Apple dropped the ball when they pushed this app out. It’s as if they rushed out the door without even testing it; which is not something Apple does.
  • So sad that homeschoolers can’t use this!

    By jmm2627
    Please open this up beyond schools!
  • Homeschoolers would love this app!!!

    By phoebe phevver
    Please allow homeschooling families access to this app. We utilize apps for learning on a regular basis and would be able to track progress easily. Not to mention the ease of tracking the rest of our work and grades. There are other apps that do parts of what we want but it seems like Apple has really got everything we need all under this one app.
  • Great so far!

    By ajfors2080
    Great app so far. There are a few issues with attaching Pages documents to assignments. Also, sometimes Kahoot challenges don’t open as challenges. It seems like Kahoot wants my students to login. I’m sure once it is a few versions in, Apple will make it available for all seeing that they did for the Classroom app. I hope at least one update will be release before school starts early August! Keep up the good work!
