Add Classes

Administrators can create classes for any school in the district. Teachers may only create classes if their access level for the school is set to All. Only an administrator can change a teacher’s access level. Learn more about changing access levels here.

If you are an administrator, you can use the student import to create classes. Learn more.

Custom Assignments

You can assign activities as custom assignments to play at the beginning of a student’s session. They are not scored and do not affect the student’s regular personalized learning sequence. Once the student has completed the custom assignment, the activity is removed from the list and the student resumes sessions in his or her sequence.

    2. To add a custom assignment to an entire class, select your class. To add a custom assignment to one student, select the student.
    3. Click Custom Assignments.
    4. Select a course tab.
      You will only see multiple tabs if students in your class are assigned to multiple courses. You can only add custom assignments from a student’s assigned course.
