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

The following guide applies to both tasks and assessments.

First, you'll need to assign a Task 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 Task/Assessment.

In this article, we'll go through Tasks as an example. All of the steps also apply to the Assessments section.

Select the type of lesson you'd like to assign. Once you've done that, under the Who? section, select the Staff class 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 by clicking here.

Once you've assigned it, click your initials in the top right-hand corner. 

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

If you have tasks assigned to your classes, they'll also show you up on this page. Either scroll down and look for the work you just assigned or search for the name of the task at the top of the page.

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 & Homework section and click Make a Copy.
