How do I assign a homework task for individual students?

Assigning tasks to individual students makes it easy to differentiate your classroom, or just to prevent a student who is out of the classroom from being assigned an in-class task.

The following guide is also relevant to Assessments.

Click on Tasks & Homework from your Control Panel.

Click the New Task buttonThis will open up the Assign a New Task dialog.

In the Who? section, select which class you would like to assign the homework task to.

If your chosen class isn't visible, try using the Search Classes search bar or toggle between My Classes and All Classes. The All Classes option will display all the classes we have registered at your school, as opposed to just the classes you're listed as teaching. 

After selecting your class, click Assign to specific students.

Tick the students you want to assign the task to. To assign the task to a small number of students, it can be faster to click Unselect all then tick the specific users you want to complete the work.

If your chosen students aren't visible, try using the Search Students search bar below the list.

Fill out the following sections as you normally would assigning a task and click the Assign Task button when complete.
