From the Assignments tab, click on Create New Assignment.
The Create an Assignment page loads.
Type in a name for the assignment.Then start to add the assignment details. When you click in the Select Worktext field, a drop-down menu will be displayed. Select the relevant worktext from this list by clicking on it.
You will only see those worktexts that your school purchased for you and the students of your section. Please contact your school administrator or TextbookHub customer service if you don’t find a required title in the list.
NOTE: We recommend browsing the worktext from your bookshelf in reader mode first to decide which questions to include in the assignment.
Select the worktext chapter you would like to assign the questions from to the students.
Select the specific pages you would like to assign to the students. Note that more than one page can be selected.
If you want to assign all the questions from the selected pages, leave the Assign Individual Questions toggled off.
Alternatively, you can pick and choose the specific questions you want to assign. Do this by toggling Assign individual questions on. The page will display additional options for finding the questions you need. Use the checkboxes to select the questions you want to include in the assignment.
You can preview a question by clicking on it. When activating the box Show Answers in the upper-right corner, you can preview and check the answers. Don’t forget to uncheck the box unless you want your students to see the answers when working on their assignments.
Note that some similar questions have been combined into one item. For example, you can see in the image below that multiple calculations have been grouped together in one overlay.
Scroll down the page to find the Submission Details section. Click to choose whether the assignment is a practice assignment or a graded assignment by using the toggle switch. Note that by default assignments are graded assignments. You can see practice assignments show the letter “p” icon in the upper left corner of the assignment thumbnail. The difference between a practice assignment and a graded one is that practice assignments are not calculated as part of a student’s grade. If you are using a LMS, practice assignments will not send grades to the LMS.
Now enter a due date for the assignment.
Move on to the Assign To section. You can choose whether you want to assign the work to your entire class or to specific individual students. Do this with the toggle switch. By default, work is assigned to an entire class section. Note that students must be part of the class section group for this to work properly.
If you toggle to the individual student option, you will see a list of students. Select students by clicking in the checkboxes next to their names. You can select just one student or multiple students.
If you toggle to the course section option, you will see a list of course sections. Assign the work to an entire class by selecting a course section.
When you have made all your selections, click Publish Assignment. The assignment will populate in the In Progress section of the Assignments page. The students you have chosen can now see the newly created assignment from you in their Assignments dashboards.
