Deployment of Release 188.8.131.52 is expected on July 31st, 2021.
|School Group and School Cluster Security Role File Support Available
|The custom user role file can now support the role of school cluster with the role code of schoolCluster and the Cluster Code to designate which groupings of schools users can access in the platform. This management initially requires you to set up your school groups through a school cluster file to indicate how schools are grouped on the site. You must submit a support ticket to allow your district to use this new user management through file support.
|Updated Minimum Character Requirement for Intervention Progress Monitoring Titles
|When adding Progress Monitoring results in Interventions, you can have as few as five characters in the title rather than the previous minimum of ten characters.
Schoology Grade Passback Supports Rubric Scored Item Types
Schoology Grade Passback from Performance Matters supports both machine-scored and manually-scored (also known as rubric-scored) assessments. This functionality allows you to administer Performance Matters tests seamlessly within Schoology with grades writing to Schoology Gradebook. This feature should be available to you if you have the Performance Matters and Schoology integration turned on for your sites.

|Text to Speech
|Student Online Testing Style Updates and Improvements
The Online Testing experience has updated styling, including:
|Basic Test TakingOnline Testing Experience
|Updated Item Editor Instruction Block Permissions
|When adding an instruction block in the item editor, you will notice that the Proctor, Test Constructor, and Tutor permissions are no longer available. Although we had legacy plans for these permission types, it turns out that the only permissions that impact visibility are Student and Scorer.
If you select Student, the contents of the instruction block are available for students when taking tests online. Selecting Scorer allows the rubric to display when scoring items with human scoreable interaction types.
|Updated the Label of the Student Detail Local Test Results Tab
|The Test Results tab of the Student Detail report previously displayed the results for tests administered through the platform under a tab labeled as Local. That label has been updated to Common. This change unifies the language of assessments administered in the platform and distinguishes them from third-party assessment results uploaded in the site from a file.
|Student and Parent Portals
|Print Option Added in the Student and Parent Portals
|For customers who use the Student and Parent Portals, a print option is now available to generate a PDF export of the student's information. Initially, this will not include any data in the Teacher Feedback tab, but this functionality will expand to include teacher feedback in a future release. With this release, the print option generates all student information to be exported for the student. Further development will allow users to choose the specific information to print from a modal.
