Collecting work is akin to saying "pencils down" in the classroom.
The student is no longer able to work on a Lesson or unsubmit their work after you collect it. This can be used effectively at the end of an exam session, or if a Lesson is still unsubmitted well past its due date.

What is visible to the student and when
The table below breaks down the differences between normal Lessons and Assessments, and what the students can see after you collect their work. When you look at an individual student's worksheet, keep in mind that what you see is not indicative of exactly what they see. You can see right and wrong marks on their worksheet before those answers are released to them. For a full breakdown of what is visible and when, click here.

Collect work from an individual student
You can collect a student's worksheet via the Markbook. Click on the student's progress icon to view more information and controls related to that specific Lesson, and then click on the option to collect it. If the student has not yet started the Lesson, click their empty cell and mark them Absent. Then click the Absent icon to reveal the option to collect the work. This will create a blank worksheet for the student.
You can also collect a worksheet from an individual student at the bottom of their Lesson.
Collect work from the whole Class
Collect work from the whole Class via the Markbook. Locate the Class controls menu that corresponds with the relevant Lesson and Class. Click the (...) button to reveal the Class controls menu and then select Collect all unfinished work. This will collect everyone's work, including those students who have not yet started. If you are not familiar with Class controls in the Markbook, learn more here.
Collect work from a specified group of students
You can selectively collect work from a group of students within your Class by using the Markbook's filters. Learn more about using Class controls in combination with Markbook filters here.
