Assignment Book

The Assignment Book helps you manage and monitor your students' work in Accelerated Maths. If you have more than one class or school, start by choosing a school, class and/or group using the drop-down lists at the top of the page. If you are using groups, use the Group drop-down list to choose the one you want to work with (or the class as a whole); you can also select Class Overview to see an overview of students' current work for all groups and the class.

If this is the first time you have visited the Assignment Book for this class, do the following:

  1. If you see a green box that says you must assign an objective list, click an option to choose whether to select or create a list; then, click Select. You do not need to create your own list if you prefer not to; Accelerated Maths already includes an objective list for each library that includes all the library's objectives.
  2. To assign objectives for students, tick the box next to each student's name or tick the box at the top of the list if you want to select the whole class. Then, click Assign Objectives on the left side of the page. If you would like Accelerated Maths to automatically assign additional objectives as needed when you generate a practice, see the Practice preference for the class.
  3. To generate assignments, tick the boxes next to student names and click one of the Generate links on the left side of the page or click Generate assignments for all students with no work above the student list.

The Assignment Book makes it easy to monitor student work. You can see the following:

  • The date on which unmarked assignments of each type were generated. By moving the mouse over the date, you can also see the objectives included in the assignment; for paper assignments, you will also see the form number. Bold dates show you which assignments were generated three or more school days ago.
  • Whether action is needed for each student - you may need to generate an assignment, generate a test, intervene because the student is struggling with an objective or assign objectives because the student has no or few active objectives. Click a message in the Actions column to begin the action.

The links on the left side of the Assignment Book allow you to

  • assign objectives to students
  • generate practices, exercises, tests and diagnostic tests for selected students
  • regenerate or delete unmarked assignments
  • put objectives on hold, reset student work for objectives or un-assign objectives
  • mark assignments using keyboard entry
  • create and manage groups of students within the class
  • print the Status of the Class or Diagnostic Reports or regenerate TOPS Reports for specific assignments
  • manage objectives in your list (including mastery criteria)
  • transfer student Accelerated Maths work (data) from another class
  • copy settings from another class, including the selected objective list and class preference settings

Messages you may see on this page (click the links below for more information):

  • The plug-in is only required if you will be using paper assignments. Click Install Plug-in next to the message to go to a page where you can download the Renaissance Place Print Plug-in.

  • If you see this message in a green box, click one of the options in the box and click Select to start creating or selecting an objective list.

Above the list of students, you may also see a link that allows you to generate assignments for all students with no work; if you have students with objectives marked Intervene, you will see a link that allows you to generate an exercise or diagnostic test for all students who need intervention.
