This page opens after you have chosen to find and assign assignments for Accelerated Reader Assigned Reading.
On this page, you can choose the classes or groups that you want to create assignments for. Follow these steps:
- If the class that is selected by default is not the one that you want to plan for, select Change Students.
- Choose the classes and groups that you want to assign work to. For most school personnel, the school is already selected in the first column. However, if you have access to more than one school, you can choose whether to include all schools or to select specific ones; if you decide to select schools, check the schools that you want to create assignments for.
In the second column, first choose whether to plan assignments for all classes or to select classes. If you choose to select classes, check the classes that you're planning assignments for. (You can search the items in a column by clicking within that column and then pressing Ctrl+F or control-F on the keyboard.)
In the third column, check the groups to include; check Whole Class to plan assignments for the class as a whole.
When you're done, select Apply.
If you started choosing assignments for this group before, and you didn't finish, after you select the students, you will see a message like the one below. Choose whether to continue working on the plan you started (with the skills you previously selected) or to start over.
- The subject (reading) is already selected for you. Select the Select Week drop-down list to choose the time period that you want to assign work for. You can choose one of the week-long time periods in the drop-down list, or you can choose Custom to select custom dates.
If you choose Custom as shown above, click the start date in the calendars first; then, click the end date. If you need to go to a month that is not shown, use the arrows on either side of the two months that are shown. When you're done, select Apply.
It is helpful to schedule assignments just one week ahead so that you can make adjustments as needed based on how students do on the work.
- Edit the plan name in the Name Your Plan field as needed. Note: It's helpful to give each plan a unique name so that you can identify the plans easily later.
- When you have finished choosing the classes or groups and the timeframe, select Start Planning to continue. In the next step, you will choose either the skills or the topics and keywords for which you want to select assignments.
