As to begin with, you have the option available to ake handouts using PDFs, documents, links and more. The whole process is as easy as sending an email as per Apple. When making a new handout you can "point" to another app. Moreover, you can integrate a specific activity in the app.
As for the second part of the app that revolves around checking on the students progress. So an individual can check on a student's progress in the form of a percentage. Student's work can also be checked by tapping on the profile. In addition to this, the data will remain private between the individual and the student. So only teachers will be able to see the progress of students and even Apple will not be able to check it.
