How can I hold my students accountable?

Edpuzzle has several features that empower teachers to keep their students accountable and make sure that they watch their assignments and understand the content.


Allow / Prevent Skipping 

Edpuzzle’s prevent skipping feature is a great tool to make sure your students watch the entirety of the video you've assigned them.

To use this feature, check the “prevent skipping” slider as you assign the video. Now, when your student needs to finish watching a video later, they can go back to where they last left off but no farther.


Student Dashboard

Accessing the Student Dashboard

You are also able to check the progress of each student on the videos you assigned them. To do this, open the student progress dashboard by:

          1. Clicking on My Classes.

          2. Selecting the class you want to track.

          3. Clicking on the video assignment you want to track.  


The student dashboard has 2 sections: students and questions. In the Students section, you have an overview of how much every student has watched of the video, when he or she was last seen and when he turned in the assignment. Clicking on a student will provide individual data. If you have multiple-choice questions in your video, you will also have a questions overview. In the question overview, you can see how many students answered correctly. Click on a question to see the percentage of students who got the right or wrong answer.


Automatic Video Pause

When your students start playing the video on Edpuzzle and switch tabs in their browser, the video will automatically pause until they go back to the Edpuzzle tab. This way, students must watch the video in order to complete the assignment and are not able to do other activities on their browser while the video is running.
