Teachers can assign specific objectives to their classes or to individual students. They can assign objectives from any grade level licensed for the school to their class.
Students will always have access to their assigned grade level objectives in the Journey. The Journey cannot be reordered at this time but Objectives can be snoozed which effectively moves them to the end of the Journey. Teachers can make additional Assignments as a way to supplement the journey with content from other grade levels or to surface content that teachers want students to work on right now. If assignments are provided to students, teachers will need to guide students on when to play the Journey content or Assignments content.
Assignments allow you to
- assign Objectives from any grade level to the entire class or individual students,
- reorder Objectives in students’ Assignments, and
- view progress on assigned Objectives
Why you might want to use Assignments:
- Use Class Assignments to have all students playing the same Objective when introducing, teaching, or reviewing a concept.
- Use Class Assignments to provide whole class access to additional, prior or post-grade level content.
- Use Individual Assignments to provide individual students with remediation or enrichment.
