How do I assign remedial tasks to students after an assessment?

Once you have assessed your students, it can be helpful to follow up with tasks that can help them to fill in the gaps in their learning. Education Perfect can automatically create an individualised set of work for every student, based on their specific needs.

 

You can set up your assessment to automatically assign recommended remedial activities to your students when creating it. For more information, see How do I set a pre-built assessment? or How do I create and assign a Quick Test?

Questions in Education Perfect assessments can be tagged with specific skills which are tested, and these skills can then be linked to Smart Lessons which will be automatically assigned to the students who need help with those skills. 

Navigate to the Assessments tab from your Control Panel.

Hover over the assessment you'd like to set remedial tasks for, and click Analysis.

Scroll down to Analysis and Recommendations. The analysis tags from the assessment will be displayed. Click View Recommendations to see which students struggled with this skill, then click Assign Recommended Tasks to create a new assessment based on these recommendations. 

You can customise the recommendations by limiting the amount of work assigned to your students, choosing which specific activities will be assigned and choosing which students should receive the recommendations.

Tick Limit the amount of work that will be assigned to your students to prevent students from being assigned more than a certain number of lessons, or more than a certain number of hours of work. This ensures students who struggled aren't assigned an insurmountable amount of remedial content.

Tick Filter recommended tasks to remove certain lessons from the recommended activities.

Tick Filter Students to remove students who should not be assigned remedial activities.

As with all tasks and assessments, you can modify the due date/time and configure notification emails. When you're finished, click Assign Tasks.

If you assign remedial tasks more than once on the same assessment (for example after the first class completes it, then again when the second class completes it), the first class will end up with two tasks assigned to them. We recommend assigning recommended tasks once, when all students have sat the assessment.
