Assignments are a great way to have your students work on specific material while they play the game. You'll even get a report that shows how they performed on the assigned questions.
When given an assignment, your students will encounter the questions from the assignment before any others, until the assignment is completed! The best part, they won't even know you've given them an assignment! They'll just play the game as they normally would.
You can follow these easy steps to create a homework assignment.
