Reporting bugs on Education Perfect

Our team works hard to ensure EP runs smoothly, but if you encounter something that's not quite right, we'd love to hear about it! 

The more details of the issue you give us, the faster we can work out how to fix the issue. In this article, we'll outline some common fixes, as well as the info that's helpful to us.

Common causes and fixes

See the following table to see fixes for our most common issues:

My students' Task progress is decreasing

Have you enabled spaced repetition?
Spaced repetition requires students to earn more than one star on each word within the Task. The day after they first learn a word, your students can revise the same word to earn themselves a second star. After another week students will be able to repeat the activity to earn the third star, etc.  

If you would like your students to learn content more than once, it's important to note that they aren't able to progress in the Task until a certain amount of time has passed.

My student has completed work but it isn't showing in the Task

Have you included previous progress? 
When a task does not have previous progress included, students will need to complete the content from within the Task within the due date. Any work completed outside the scope of the Task isn't included.

My student completed the Task to 100% but then the progress decreased

Has the lesson been edited since the Task was assigned? 
If an assigned lesson has been modified in the duration of the Task, students may lose their progress for any of the words or questions that have been modified, even if the modification was only adding additional correct answers.

My student has completed the work but it is not showing 100% Have your students completed all available Learning Modes? 
A Task will only be counted as 100% complete when the student has completed all of the Learning Modes that have been included.
I have set a Task/Assessment but my students cannot see it

Has the Task/Assessment started yet? 
If a Task or Assessment has been created to start at a future time or date, it will not appear in the Student Zone until the set starting time. Once the Task or Assessment has started your students will be able to see it in the Tasks & Assessments section of their Student Zone.
