How do I add comments to a progress report?

After an Admin has created progress reports for a school, teachers at the school can enter comments for the students in their classes. At the beginning of each academic term, teachers receive an email notification reminding them to add comments to progress reports.

Notes:

  • Teachers may enter comments in Spanish or English. Other languages and Emojis are not supported.
  • To enter comments, your Mastery Connect account must be configured with a SIS integration.
  • After an administer generates a progress report, the term closes and teachers can no longer enter data. To reopen a progress report for comments, an administrator may reopen the progress report.
