This tutorial will show you how to customize your online assignment within the new assignment page.
- Toggle dynamic questions and shuffled order
- Add a start date and/or a due date
- Include an available after and an available before timeframe
- Toggle aids like the drawing tool, speech to text, and instructional videos
- Filter students by class/section or intervention group, then add all students from a filtered section or intervention to an assignment
- Toggle weekend access
- Check answers, hide results, override default settings
Once you have added all of the stems, added your label, and gave your assignment a title, be sure that online is selected, then select View.
You will now be able to preview the questions within your assignment. Click the Next button to move forward and see the rest of the questions.
When you are ready to customize your assignment for your students, click Assign.
From the new assignment page, you can choose several different assignment settings. As you can see, we already have our title and our label.
Dynamic questions and shuffled order
The next option you have is the choice of dynamic questions and shuffled order. When both are off, this is considered a static assignment. Students will receive the same exact questions in the same exact order. If both are on, as you can see in the Green Field below, students will receive different questions all in a shuffled order. You can also do a combination of the two, and again, the definition of what it means will be in the green box below.
Start date and due date
You can update your start date to the date you would like your students to complete the assignment. You can also add a due date by clicking into the field and selecting a date.
Available before/after timeframe
You can update your start date to the date you would like your students to complete the assignment. You can also add a due date by clicking into the field and selecting a date. The available after and available before times are optional, but you can select a specific time frame that this assignment is available to your students within the platform once they log in.
Drawing tool, speech to text, and instructional videos
The drawing tool is another option. This allows students to show their work.
Text-to-speech will read the problem aloud to the students.
Instructional videos are a way for students to have access to a video that shows them one way to solve the problem.
Unanswered questions and weekend access
Allowing unanswered questions and weekend access are teacher preferences.
Check answers, hide results, override default settings
Allowing students to check the answers, or you can also hide the results at the very end of the assignment once the student submits.
Adding a time limit is also an option. Click into the fields and use the arrows up or down to choose the amount of minutes for the entire assignment.
Scrolling down, your rostered class or sections will automatically populate for you. However, if you want to specifically push this assignment out to an intervention group, just move over to the right, find that intervention group you would like to push this assignment out to, and once the section or the interventions that you want to push the assignment out to are populated in the field, select Add all.
Now, you'll see all of the students that are either in that section or class or intervention populate. You can still remove students individually by clicking the "x" next to their name.
You can also choose to override the default settings so that in the future, all of the above settings will remain the same as long as you're on the same device.
And when you are ready to push the assignment out to your students, the final step is to click Create Assignment.
