How can I test Tasks & Assessments myself?

To help you to ensure that the activities you're planning on running go smoothly, Education Perfect has the option for you to test work yourself before assigning it to your students.

Assigning to the Staff class

First, you'll need to assign a Task or Assessment to the Staff class. This will allow you to set the work up the way you want it, without your students being able to access it.

Start by navigating to either the Tasks or Assessments section and clicking + Assign.

In these steps, we'll use Tasks as an example, but the same steps also apply to Assessments.

Select the type of lesson you'd like to assign. Next, select the Staff class under Select classes and students and set up the Task as you would for your students.

At this time, you are unable to select specific teachers within the Staff Class.

For more information on setting up a Task, check out our guide.

Select Student Zone. This will take you to the Student Zone, which is what your students see when they log in.

Reassigning the Task to your students

If you're happy with the task, you can copy it over to your students. To do this, head back to the Teacher Zone. Navigate back to the task in the Tasks tab and click Make a Copy.
