Once all of the eligibility and sufficiency checks have a green "Yes" on the Submission Status screen, the button that says "Submit for Teacher Approval" will become active.
When the student clicks the "Submit for Teacher Approval" button, a dialog box will appear asking the student to confirm that this is his or her own work. Once the student clicks the confirmation button, the work is submitted to the teacher for approval and the student is no longer able to work on it unless the teacher requests revisions.
Unlike other assessments, COE teachers are asked to read each student response before approving the collection for submission. There are two methods for approving student work.
1) Approve one sample at a time - in this method, a student marks a sample as complete, then marks it for inclusion so the teacher can approve it immediately. The advantage of this method is that the teacher is able to approve samples as they are finished rather than approving all of the samples at once.
If the status icon is green and there is a check mark in the "Include" box, the task is ready for approval. Click on the title of the task or prompt.
You will see the dialog box shown above at the top of the student work. Read the work, then either click "Approve" or write a comment and click "Request Revision." If you approve the work, the status icon changes to a green circle with a check mark. If you request revisions, the status icon will turn yellow.
2) The second method is to submit the entire collection to the teacher for approval at one time. To do this, the student completes all of the work, then marks all of the work samples for inclusion in the collection. If all of the "Met Requirement" indicators say "Yes," the "Submit for Teacher Approval" button will be active. The icons will turn to gold circles with an R in them, indicating that they are ready for review. The teacher will need to click the link for each task and read through the answers, then Approve or Request Revision on each task. Once all tasks are reviewed and approved, the teacher will be able to click the "Submit for Principal Approval" button.
