Getting Started with the PTP
Scanning Documents on Mobile Devices
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: When a student finishes their assignment, do they press the Turn In button?
Answer: Nope! Once they press the turn in button, they lose access to make changes. Since the PTP is supposed to be a living document even after it is graded, it is best to leave it not turned in.
Question: Can assignments still be graded if they are not turned in?
Question: Do class codes matter?
Answer: Yes, if students are not in the right Google Classroom, it can cause confusion during grading.
Question: Who will students go to if they have questions?
Answer: Counselors and STARS Teachers. If faculty/staff have questions, they can be forwarded to Tech.
Question: Why are some documents read-only?
Answer: Those documents are meant for reference since usually the work that needs to be submitted will be external work, like a personal statement, resume, college application, transcripts, etc.
Question: Will there be scanners available to help students get their items onto the PTP?
Answer: If teachers are willing to let students use their tech to do it, it is allowed. Tutorials for using Mobile Devices to scan PDF documents are now available on our website under: PTP Tutorials.
Question: Is the PTP compatible with the Chromebooks and iPads?
Answer: Most definitely, YES. This Google Classroom conversion allows very ease of access to PTP Items. The classroom can be accessed from ANY Computer, even at home. Assignments can also be done on mobiles devices if they have the Google Drive and Classroom Apps.
Question: Does each student get a copy of the assignment in their drive?
Answer: Most items will automatically make a copy for the student. All documents will be available in the PTP class folder in their Google Classroom folder on their Google Drive.
