How Teachers Assign District Customized Content

 BETA Testing 

District administrators have the ability to create and share District Customized Content with teachers across the district. 

Once District Customized Content has been shared, teachers will need to assign it to their class(es) before it will appear in the teacher’s Customized Content list and in their student’s To Do list. 

Teachers will also have access to see student scores for the District Customized Content in the Customized Content Report.

The instructions below will walk teachers through the steps.

Assign and View 

Teachers will receive a notification in the upper right corner of their Account Dashboard when District Customized Content is shared with them. The content is not automatically assigned to classes or students. Teachers will do that in a follow-up step. After teachers assign District Customized Content to their class(es), they will be able to review the content and read the separate instructions for students and teachers. 

Click the Notification Bell to view the shared District Customized Content. 

Select the content shared by the district admin to assign it to your class(es).

As soon as the District Customized Content is selected, the Classes page opens. Follow the on-screen instructions and select the class(es) to assign the content. 

Make sure to select the appropriate class(s) then click Add.

Once the Add button is selected, a confirmation box appears on-screen and will now be available in your Customized Content list. 

Teachers will be able to see (as shown below) which content they have created and which content has been created by a district admin. Click the title to view the District Customized Content. 

 

Edit

When District Customized Content is created, admins have the option to allow teachers to edit the content and due dates. If the district admin selects this option, teachers will be able to make changes to content and due dates for their class(es). 

 

If editing has been enabled by the district admin, teachers will be able to click the Edit button in the Actions Menu. If Edit is grayed out, teachers will not be able to make changes.

To edit District Customized Content, click the three dotsin the bottom right corner of the label for the content you wish to edit.

Make the necessary edits and click Save at the bottom of the screen.
