Student access: setting assignments

In Student Access, you can set assignments for your students. When they complete an assignment, the results are automatically recorded in the teacher's mark book.

This page explains how to set three types of assignments: reading, writing, and qBank assignments.

This page is for teachers using student access who have already set up a group of students. To find out how to set up a student group, please read this page first: Student access: Creating groups

Types of assignments

  • Reading assignments ask students to read a page of the website. Your mark book automatically ticks the assignment when they have done this.
  • Writing assignments instruct students to write a comment after studying a page of resources. These comments are stored automatically in your mark book.
  • qBank assignments set a multiple-choice test for students.  The marks are recorded in your mark book without any effort.

How to set an assignment

Step 2: Click "Groups"
