As you store more and more data in JumpRope, it becomes increasingly important to be able to find it quickly and efficiently. JumpRope has always been able to search through your students from the search bar, but not courses or units or other data types. To help you be more efficient in the system, we are adding additional data types to the new Universal Search feature.
As of today, you can now search Students, Courses, and Units from the search bar in the teacher dashboard. To do so, simply begin typing the name of a student, course, or unit in the search bar and click or arrow-key to the desired result.
- In order to accommodate the new universal search, you may have noticed a slight change to the menu options available in the top right. We have combined your account settings menu with the support menu, now available from the
- link. Don't worry - you can still contact us directly if you have a question or a problem!
- Additionally, if you need to access the Backoffice or Admin Console (and you have permission) you can now click the app title (in this case, Teacher Dashboard) to switch contexts faster than ever. You have to have access to the modules to use this feature.
Student results will open a new tab (up to five) so that you can view student info. You can even have up to five students open at once! Notice that the persistent Students tab is now hidden until you search for a student.
Course results will "jump" to the Courses tab and select the course (if it occurs on the current scheduled day) for attendance entry or mastery reporting, reducing the number of clicks it takes to run reports for a given class.
Unit results will jump to the Plan tab where you can view and edit standards and assessments for the selected unit. Be careful if you have multiple units with the same name, as it may get confusing - another reason to name your units more carefully in the Plan tab! Coming soon: the ability to jump straight to grade entry for a unit / course.
Over time, we plan to add the ability to search for standards, assessments, users, and other data types in order to help you access the information that you're looking for as quickly as possible. We hope that this feature helps JumpRope become the tool that you've always hoped for in your classroom!
