4. Assigning Courses to your Students
Your next step is to assign courses to your students. Students will only be able to see courses assigned to them.
4.1 How to assign courses to your students
To assign courses to your students, click on the “My Students” tab.
On the left side of the “My Students” homepage, select the student you would like to assign a course to. The student’s name will highlight in blue.
Click the “+ Assign New Course” button in order to assign courses to the student.
Select the courses that you would like to assign and click “Next”.
When assigning a course to a student, you have an option to set learning order and pacing. Learning order is the order in which you would like your students to complete the units and lessons. Pacing allows you to restrict students from moving on to the next unit or lesson without teacher’s approval.
Select the learning order for your student.
- If you select the “Units and lessons must be completed in order” option, students will be required to complete all questions in each lesson before moving on to the next one.
- If you select “Units and lessons can be completed in any order,” students will be able to start any lesson or assessment at any time.
If you select a course to be taken in order, you can change it to be taken in any order even after the student started the course, but not the other way around.
Select the pacing for your student. Pacing allows you to prevent students from moving pass specific lessons or units without your approval. You can place “checkpoints” on specific lessons or assessments. If you select checkpoints, you would need to approve the checkpoint to allow a student to advance.
- If you select “Let students go at their own pace,” students are free to move on at their own pace.
- If you select “Decide when students can move on to the next unit,” a checkpoint will be placed at the end of each unit.
- If you select “Choose the specific lessons where students will need approval to proceed,” a list of the course units and lessons will appear. You can select the specific lessons or assessments where you’d like to set checkpoints.
Note: Once a student started a course, you cannot change these pacing options.
Once the student reaches a checkpoint you will receive a notification in the activity tab. Click “Approve Now” to approve the checkpoint and allow the student to continue to next lesson.
In addition, you can unlock all checkpoints, up to a specific lesson or unit for all students taking a course by using the “Change Pacing” button.
Select a lesson or assessment that you would like to allow students to proceed up to and click “Okay.”
A tip: There are helpful ways that the learning order and pacing features can be used together. For example, you’d like today’s class to complete Unit 1 Lesson 4. One of your students was absent and that student is only on lessons 2. By setting the learning order to allow that student to take lessons out of order, that student can take Lesson 4 with the rest of the class. If you use this tip in combination with pacing, you can let students access the lessons they need, while preventing them from jumping too far ahead.
4.3 How to assign a course to multiple students
Click on “My Courses” tab, then click on the tile of the course you would like to assign.
Click on the “+ Assign New Student” button.
Mark the students that you would like to assign and click “Next”.
Note: The number of available licenses is indicated at the bottom of the “Assign Students” window.
4.4 How to unassign a course
You can unassign a course if the student has not yet started taking the course. When a student is unassigned from a course, its license returns to the unused licenses pool and can be assigned to another student. Remember, if a student has begun a course, the license cannot be assigned to another student.
In order to unassign a course go to “My Students” tab, then on the left side of “My Students” tab, select the student. The student’s name will highlight in blue. Click the “Unassign” button for the course you would like to unassign.
