Follow these steps to make sure that your students have access to the right assignments.
1. Make sure students that have recently joined your class have been added to the assignments
2. Have your student log in to their NoRedInk account and look for the assignments there
- Make sure your student is signing in to the correct NoRedInk account that joined your class
- If the account is correct, see if the assignment appears under Your Assignments or Late Assignments on your student's homepage. If it does not, you may want to double check the assignment's settings in your account (see step 3).
- Check the student's Past Work page as the student may have forgotten that they already completed the assignment. You can also view the student's Past Work page in your own account by following these instructions.
3. Check your assignment settings and make adjustments
If students are reporting not being able to see their assignments, double check your assignment settings. To get here, find your assignment on your Assignment Page and click on the edit (pencil) icon next to the assignment name.
In your assignment settings, you should check for 3 things:
- Check that the correct students' names are checked off under "Assign to." Add a checkmark to any student names that are missed but should have access to the assignment.
- Check your start date and start time, as well as the due date and due time. You can make adjustments as needed. See the instructions here.
Students will only see assignments that are in progress on their homepage, with the exception of late assignments that show up under this section on their home page.
- If an assignment is past due but you would still like students to have access to it, make sure the "Allow late work" box is checked off.
3. Make sure your time zone settings match with student time zones
When you assign an assignment as a teacher, the assignment will be tied to your time zone as configured in your NoRedInk account. For example, if you are in the Eastern US time zone and you set your assignment to be due at 5 pm EST, the assignment will be due at 2 pm PST for remote students in the Pacific US time zone.
To ensure that there aren't discrepancies between your assignment start/due date times and your students' accounts, we recommend that you and your students use the same time zone.
To set your time zone or to confirm a student's time zone setting, click your name or your student's name in the upper-right of the screen, then click "Account Settings" and review the time zone.
