How do I edit, copy, and delete assignments?


After you create an assignment, you'll be able to Edit, Copy, or Delete it as needed. Here's how to do that:

From your Teacher Dashboard, click on the name of one of your classes to enter it.


Click on Manage under Assignments in the left sidebar.


Mark the checkboxes to the right of each assignment you want to manage. See how the Delete option appears in red on the first line. 


Next, click on the three dots (...) on the right-hand side of an assignment.


Each of the options shown will take you to the corresponding action:

  • Edit: Editing an assignment allows you to adjust its due date and the specific group of students within a class who received the assignment. In the Scheduled and Drafts tab, editing an assignment allows you to also adjust its start date.


Caution: Note that removing any students, or editing the date for just some students could cause any work that students have already done to be lost permanently. If you would like to retain data from this assignment, select Copy, and assign that copy to new students or change the copy's due date.

  • Copy: Copying an assignment allows you to create an identical assignment for a different class.


  • Delete: Deleting an assignment will remove it from both your assignment page and your students’ assignments pages. This action cannot be undone.


Viewing and editing past, scheduled, and draft assignments

Past assignments

Once the due date has passed for an assignment, it will still show up on the Assigned tab, but you may need to scroll down and click on the Next button to find it. Your students' performance data will be saved for you to look back on later. You can still edit, duplicate, delete, and extend the due date for past assignments. 



Scheduled assignments

In your class's Scheduled tab you'll find the scheduled assignments. Scheduled assignments will appear on your students' accounts on the date you've set. However, you can still edit these assignments' start date (in case you want them to go live sooner or later), the due date, and the students that would receive the assignments.


Draft assignments

If you save a draft for an assignment, it will show up on the Draft tab. You can post your draft assignments at any time.


To assign a draft assignment, click the Assign button next to the assignment. By clicking the three dots (...) on the right-hand side of a draft and selecting Edit, you can make any changes you would like to the due date or group of students who will receive the assignment, and then click Assign, just like you would with a new one. 


Additionally, now teachers see two indications next to the content that was previously assigned or that was scheduled for a future date. The Assigned and Scheduled indicators are available in the Assign tab of your class page.
