How to Complete Projects (Students)

Once a project has been assigned to a student, the student can see and complete the project by following these steps:

  1. Students see projects in two places:
    • The projects that are assigned to students are listed when they log in. New projects are marked with the orange "New" banner in the list. The student selects the project name.
    • example of the Projects section on the student's main page

    • Students can select Projects at the top of the page to see their assigned projects. Students will then see the projects that have been assigned to them. Projects with the red project not started icon project not started have not been started. Those with the yellow icon showing some progress project in progress have been started, but are not finished. Those with a green icon that is fully filled in project finished are finished. The task icons on each project are in the same colours to show you which ones are not started, in progress or finished. To work on a project, the student selects the project.

  2. Once a project is open, the student can see which project tasks still need work. Tasks with the red icon project not started have not been started. Tasks with the yellow icon project in progress have been started, but are not done. Tasks with the green filled icon project finished are done. In this example, the student has started reading books about countries of the world but has not yet done the writing task. To work on a task, the student clicks it.

    Reading Tasks and News Tasks

    For reading tasks (for books and news articles), the student clicks an item and selects Read to start reading it. (For books you will see a message telling you whether a book is Not Started, Started, or Finished - see the example above.)

    Writing Tasks

    For writing tasks, students select Start Writing. Then, they read the instructions and select the Essay Writer tab to begin writing.

    Students may also select the Your Journal tab to see the journal entries they made while reading books; these notes may help the student with the writing task. If a peer review of other students' writing is required, students select the Peer Review tab, select another student's writing, and write a review.

    When the student has finished working on the Writing Task, the student selects Save in the top right corner. After saving, the student will have new options for the writing task. The student can choose to Continue Writing (if not done) or Hand in Writing if the student has finished the task.

    Graphic Organiser Tasks

    For Graphic Organiser Tasks, students select the task, then select Start Graphic Organiser.

    Next, students read the instructions. When they are ready to begin, they select the tab for the type of graphic organiser they need to complete. In the example below, the student needs to enter the Main Idea and Details. The student can then enter information about the Graphic Organiser and enter information into it. When the student is done, the student selects Save.

    After saving and going back to the project, the student has two options: Continue Graphic Organizer or Hand In Graphic Organizer. When the student has finished work on this task, the student turns it in to complete the work.

    All Purpose Tasks

    For all purpose tasks, the student simply selects the task and then selects Mark Completed when the task is complete.
