How can students access their set work?

As a teacher, it's useful to know how students can access work that you've assigned them. We've outlined the different ways students can go about doing this. We also have a built in feature that lets teachers see things as a student would. 

Through email

Provided your students are set up with an email address, you have the option of sending an email notification when a Task or Assessment is assigned to them.

Email notifications section

When you tick this option, your students will receive an email at the beginning of the activity. Your students can click on the link in these emails to be taken directly to the task, without the need to log in.

Through the Student Zone

Students can access their work by logging in as they normally would.

To make it easier to understand how things work on the student end, you're able to open the Student Zone yourself and attempt any work that you've set for your students.

To get to the Student Zone, from your dashboard, click your name in the bottom left-hand corner, then click Student Zone.

First time logging in

The first time you access the Student Zone, you'll be prompted to select your favourite subject(s). Once you've selected favourites, they'll appear at the top of the Student Zone whenever you log in.

Click on Tasks & Assessments at the top of the page. Click on the task to open it and click one of the sections to begin.

Accessing past work

The Learning Record contains all of the work that students have done in the past. This is a convenient way to access tasks or assessments that have ended. 

You can use the filters at the top of the page to narrow down the work shown by activity type, time frame and subject.

Active competitions and competitions that are coming up in the near future can be accessed through the Competitions page.

Independent learning

Students have access to EP's Content Library and can complete work independently if they like.

This can be helpful for self-directed or independent learning, or students who want to extend their learning outside of what’s been assigned to them. Students can use this to practice in the lead-up to exams, and even explore subjects they might not be actively participating in.

Are there lessons, exams, or topics you’d prefer students not to access? You can easily hide content from students.

Students can click on any subject, and then Browse all content.

From here they can browse through all available lessons and work through them in their own time.

Any work completed in this way will be shown in the student’s Learning Record and reporting history as normal.
