How do I view and respond to active student reflections?

Tracking Student Reflection Responses

While you'll receive an email whenever a student submits a response to your reflection question, you can also monitor students' progress from your Home page. 

  1. Click the reflection question under Reflections sent this month or select an individual student's reply at the top of the page under Up next: Reply to your students' reflections.
