As a teacher, follow the steps below to make changes to a project that you created. Note: If the project has been assigned to students, changes may affect students' progress on the project.

  1. Click Classroom, then Projects.
  2. select Classroom, then Projects

  3. To locate the project you wish to edit, select Active to see projects that have already been assigned to some students or Inactive to see projects that have not yet been assigned to students. When you find the project, select Edit.
  4. select Edit for a project that you want to change

  5. On the Editing Project page, you can edit the name, due date, description, tags, whether the project is shared, and the recommended grade levels.
  6. The task(s) you can edit for your project will be listed in the bottom right corner of the Editing Project page. Click the gear icon icon (gear) to edit any of the tasks associated with your project. If you want to remove a task from the project, click trash icon next to the task; this can't be undone - you need to recreate a removed task to add it to the project again.

    select the edit or gear icon for a task you want to change

    For Lexile®/Benchmark tasks (if available), you can edit the title, but not the type of test selected. If you want to change the type of test, you must remove the task and add a new one.

    If you edit a reading task like the one shown below, you can change the task title, task objective, reader settings, the number of books that must be finished before the task is marked complete, and the books in the project.

    If you want to change the books in the project, select Manage Books. In the window that opens, the books you have included are already checked. To search for more books, enter your search words in the field at the top of the window and select Find Books. Then, check any additional books that you want to include. (You can also search using the available filters.) To remove a book from the project, remove the check mark. When you're done, click the red X. Then, make any other changes to the reading task as needed; when you're done, close the reading task using the X. You will be returned to the Editing Project page.
