If you have submitted all of your surveys, you will see a "thumbs up" confirmation, instead, and the Progress Surveys tab will indicate that you have no active surveys. 


Complete a Progress Survey (Mobile)

Progress Surveys have been optimized for mobile devices. The steps to complete a progress survey as noted above still apply for the mobile experience. However, there are a few notable differences with how the screens display on a mobile device.

In particular, on small screens, the survey will not display as a grid. Instead, you will see a list of students, and you can select the Plus icon to expand the row and leave feedback.
