I recently scheduled a skill to assign on a later date. That date has since passed, but rather than my students' statuses saying "not started" or "started" all of them show as "Pending". What does this mean?
Hi all, we're trying to see it on our end and cannot replicate this issue, although it is troubling that there are several people who appear to be experiencing it. Please let us know next time it happens to you. It would be helpful if you give us more information, take screenshots and/or leave the problem assignments up (don't delete it) so that we can look at it from our end to see if we can find the issue. Thanks for your help with this!
So I have had this happen to me twice now, but in different classes. I posted a future assignment with a start date and an end date. 2 of my classes showed pending or that I had new students join the class and I had to accept them (which non of them were new students). This last time I put the assignment in Monday (yesterday) with a start date of that very day, and 2 of my classes again showed "pending" and the other one showed that I had to accept these new students. These were not the same classes as the last time, and I did not try to put in a future date, just an end date of Friday. I edited the "pending" assignment, and then accepted the "new students." It is a little frustrating because I don't know this is happening until my students do the entire assignment and then ask me why they did not get the email that said it was complete. I hope we can figure out why this is happening. Thank you!
The problem with "leaving" it, at least in my experience, is that it messes up subsequent assignments for certain classes and makes it even more difficult in the short run. I do have one example still in one of my classes- Español 1-8 on my account, assignment dated for December 9th, 2016.
Hi all, thank you so much for your reports! We have reproduced this on our end and are working on a fix! We are going to try and retroactively start assignments that are caught in the "pending" state when the fix is ready.
In the meantime, feel free to delete or recreate assignments - no need to keep the incorrect ones around anymore. Thanks again for reporting this and sorry for the inconvenience! We want this feature to be as useful and time-saving as possible and we understand that it's crucial that you can rely on assignments starting as scheduled.
I have 6 classes on Duolingo. They all have the same assignment 200XP from Nov/9-Nov/22. Three of these groups have a pending status. I am really concern because this is an assignment that they need to complete while I am in medical leave and there is no way for me to know who has or has not complete it during my absence. Please help!
I am having this same issue still. On December 8, I assigned students to complete 50 XP on Duolingo. Start date December 9 at 8 a.m. and end date December 16 at 8 a.m. When December 9th came, the assignment never posted and it still shows as "pending" for all students. When I go to edit the assignment, it does not allow me to fix the issue. My only options are to change the dates or delete the assignment altogether. On the student's end, it shows that the assignment has already been completed even though they didn't do it.
Jeffery, that's what I initially thought too (and tried). However, I confirmed with my students - by looking at the site under their log-in - that they did not see the assignment I had scheduled. They also did not receive the email reminder I tried to send.
To clarify, I scheduled the assignment Friday afternoon to appear on Saturday morning. As of today (Tuesday) the assignment was still showing "Pending". I decided to cancel it and assign a different skill, which showed up without issue. Looks like several other people are having the same issue.
This is also happening to me. I have 6 total courses in Duo and two weeks ago it happened in one of them... this week it happened in two more of them. In all of the cases they were assignments I scheduled in advance. I have left my problem assignments up and have screenshots of what it looks like. How do I get them to you?
I am having the same issue here. I assigned 10-day assignments to five different classes. It's 7 days in, and I have just realized that only one of the five worked! The other four are pending. What a nightmare!
I know a fix is in the works, but in the meantime, how can I tell which students have been working on the assignment and which haven't? This was worked up as a really important assignment in my classrooms, and it would be very unfair to my students if I don't count their work. Any help or suggestions would be so appreciated!
It happened to me today. I had set future assignments for everyday this week without issue until today. Editing the assignment just prompts you to start the assignment for a later time but it still fails to start the assignment or notify students. Unfortunately, I think I'll have to assign the homework assignments on the day off instead until this issue gets fixed. :/
