Assigning Objectives

Follow the steps below to assign objectives to students in the Assignment Book. (Be sure to select or create an objective list for the class first.)

When you assign an objective, the objective's status changes to Assigned (). When you generate practices, Accelerated Math includes objectives that are in the Assigned or Ready to Work () state. Once you assign an objective, Accelerated Math begins tracking the student's progress toward mastering the objective automatically, based on the student's work. (If you wish, you can unassign objectives that have been assigned.)

Who can do this with default capabilities?

District Administrators, School Administrators, Teachers

  1. On the Home page, select Other Math & Reading Apps. On the next page, select the green Accelerated Math tile (shown below); then, select Assignment Book.

    The Assignment Book lists the students who are in one class. The class name is shown above the list of students. If you have access to more than one Accelerated Math school, use the School drop-down list and choose the school for which you want to view a class Assignment Book. If you have more than one class, and you want to select a different class, use the Class drop-down list to select the class name. If you want to assign objectives for a specific group, select it from the Group drop-down list.

  2. Check the box next to each student who needs objectives assigned. If you want to assign objectives to the entire class, you do not need to select students before going to the next step.
  3. Click Assign Objectives on the left side of the page.
  4. The next page will show you some of the class objectives. Check the box next to each objective that you want to assign.
  5. If you selected more than one student, check the box in the column for the objective and the row for the student. You can assign an objective to all the students at once by checking the box next to the objective number at the top of the column. (To see the objective description and library, position your mouse over the objective number. You can also scroll through the objective list at the top of the page to see descriptions.)

    Only some of the objectives in the list will be shown. Click to go to the next group of objectives, to go back one group, to go to the last group in the objective list, or to go to the first group. You can also use the drop-down list in the middle of the arrows to choose a specific group of objective numbers. You can also search for objectives by clicking , entering key terms, and clicking Search; only the objectives that matched your search will be listed. To see the full list again, click Show All.

    Click next to an objective description to see sample problems for that objective. If the icon is available, click it to see a worked example, which shows you the steps required to solve a sample problem and the answer.

    Click . Click it again to hide the standards. Objectives in bold text are related to your standards.

    A symbol appears next to each objective to show you the student's status for that objective; to see the name of a symbol, position your mouse over the symbol or click Legend.

    Objectives marked with or with a shaded corner () are core objectives.

  6. After checking the box(es), click Assign. The Assigned () symbol will appear next to the objectives you checked.
  7. When you have finished assigning objectives, click Done. You will return to the Assignment Book.

In the Practice Preference for each class, you can choose to automatically assign a certain number of objectives to students who have no objectives assigned and none ready for review. Objectives will be automatically assigned when the students' next practice is generated.
