Assessment Timezones

Hi all, 

 

We will be running mock GCSEs through PowerSchool in January. We want all students to be able to sit the assesments at the same time, but as an online school, we have students all over the world in different time zones. 

 

If we set a time for the assessment to open on Unified Classroom, will that adjust to the student's timezones or will it default to UK time? 

 

I know this is a bit of a random one as most user don't use PowerSchool in the way we do. 

 

Many thanks for your help. 

Emily

Re: Assessment Timezones

Hi @eboothmos,

 

Thank you for posting in the Community!

 

Currently, Unified Classroom Assessments can only be set for a specific date and not a specific time for all students in different time zones.

 

I have submitted this as a feature request to the Unified Classroom Product team on your behalf to add a feature to set the assessment in a specific time for all students in different time zones.  We thank you for your suggestion to improve the Unified Classroom for all users!

 

Please feel free to reach us if you have any questions. We are happy to help!
