How do I message students about assignment submissions in the Teacher app on my Android device?

In the Teacher app, you can message students about their submissions based on the filter set for the assignment. You can send messages to all students, students with late submissions, students who have not submitted a submission, students whose submissions have not been graded, students whose submissions have been graded, students who received a score less than a specific value, and students who received a score greater than a specific value.

Messages are sent to students individually and display in the Conversations Inbox.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.
