Your student was not included as part of your assignment at the time of its creation

Students must be a part of the assignment in order to receive the questions from that assignment.

To view which students were included in the assignment and to include or remove an account: 

  • Click on the assignment as it appears in your calendar or list and select Edit.
  • Proceed until you see your students' names, and ensure the desired students have a check next to their check box

Your student is not using the account that you've provided to them

Your student might be using an alternate account that you have not provided the assignment to. The best way to check this is to ask them which username they are using currently, and direct them to start using the account you've created instead so that you can ensure they receive your assignments moving forward.

If you'd like to include the account that they're currently using instead,  please follow the instructions included in step 3 of this article.
