For each class, you need to determine what assignments the students will complete. Also, as the class progresses you may want to change the assignments or add new ones. This document describes how to select and assign assignments to a class or select students.
There are a couple different types of instruction you can assign to students.
- Custom Instruction (an assignment consisting of units you put together)
- Classroom Instruction (Applied Math, Integrated Reading, and Science)
- Shared Instruction (Custom Instruction someone else created and shared)

Assigning Instruction to Newly Added Students
Occasionally you may find that you need to add a new student to your class throughout the school year. You can find instruction on how to do that here.
Once added, however, they are not automatically provided access to previously assigned instruction. When new students are added, they will be marked as "Skipped."
In order to get them these assignments, you can expand each assignment that you wish for them to receive, change their status to Assigned, then save! They will then have immediate access to your Classroom Instruction.
Instructional Mode vs. Manual Mode
When you assign instruction, it will default to Instructional Mode. This means that the students will proceed through the assignment and unit components in order and cannot skip around. The instructional mode is the recommended mode for most assignments.
