To create a test or an assignment:
You should type in a long description of the assignment (such as the objectives or a list of the assignment questions) in the Description area. This will be the main source of information for students and parents viewing the assignment on the Web service. Also, you can save to or load from a text file by clicking the Save or Load buttons, or spell check if desired.
After you have created an assignment, you can grade it by clicking the Record Results button.
Go to Tests & Assignments, highlight the assignment with the cursor and click on the Delete Assignment button.
Go to the Tests & Assignments screen.
If you want to copy the assignment to All Classes, select the option Copy Assignment To All Classes in Term
If you want to copy to one class, right click with mouse and select Copy Assignment. Go to another class, right click with mouse, and select Paste Assignment.
If you have a regular pattern of tests or assignments, use the Recurring Tests & Assignments feature to make it easy to create these periodic assignments. To create a recurring test or assignment:
Note: If you delete a recurring assignment, the program will ask if you want to delete only that individual assignment, or if you want to delete all recurring assignments. Use care to delete only the assignments that you actually want to remove.
Go to Grading | Assignments and click on the Standard Assignments tab. Here you can select from fifteen Standard Assignment Types to use. If you need additional assignment types, click on the Custom Assignments tab. The Standard Assignment Types you select and the Custom Assignment types you create will be listed in the Type drop-down menu available in Tests & Assignments.
To weight assignment categories, go to the Classes screen, select a Class, and click on the Weighting tab. To use assignment type weighting, check the Use Assignment Type Weighting checkbox and drag the weighting bars left or right to indicate each assignment types respective percentage weight. For example, you could make homework count for 50% of the overall grade, quizzes 25%, and the final exam 25%. You may also make any assignment type count for 0% (i.e. be graded but not enter into the final grade.) The sum of the assignment weightings will always be 100% (if you have selected to make non-academic grades count towards final grade, part of this 100% may be apportioned to non-academic grades).
To suppress assignment type weighting, leave the checkbox for Use Assignment Type Weighting clear. Assignment types will then have no effect on grade calculations. Only individual assignments weights (as selected in the Tests & Assignments screen) will affect grades.
