When viewing student portfolios, you have the option to “Only include Assessments that have been assigned Progress”. This will significantly cut down the length of the portfolio and allows you to better interpret the portfolio as it applies to relevant assessments of the child's development progression.

Attach Observations

Once a child has a progress label for a milestone or domain, you'll be able to attach observations to demonstrate why you've selected that particular progress label. Click the blue plus (+) symbol to add an observation from the web or via the mobile app.

You'll be able to filter for particular activities, or scroll through all activities that have been recorded for this child and use the Select box on the right side to decide which activities apply to the learning standard.

Note: Only observation activities can be attached to the developmental profile from the app. All other activities will need to be attached via the website.
