ALEKS - Assessment and Learning

6.4.3 Basic Information


STEP 1. This step allows the instructor to select a start date and time and end date and time for the Homework. The Homework will be available to the students during this period. By default, the start date and time is when you begin creating the Homework; the end date and time is 11:59 PM of the same day.
  • Name. A sequential name for the Homework will be generated (e.g., Homework 1, Homework 2, etc.), or the instructor can choose a name.
  • Status. Normally, the Homework will be left "Enabled"; if you wish to keep it hidden for the time being, change the Status to "Disabled" using the drop-down menu.
  • Time Limit. By default, there is no time limit on a Homework, but one may be assigned.
  • Allow students to save this assignment for later and go back to Learning Mode. By checking this box, instructors can allow students to start an assignment and then save it to complete later. This will permit students to work in Learning Mode or on other assignments before finishing this assignment. This option is not available for timed assignments.
  • Publish this Homework to the student calendar. The assignment is normally published to the student calendar, but this can be disabled.
  • Location. If IP addresses are used to restrict access to assignments to within the college, a Location drop-down menu will be available (Sec. 7.20.1).
  • Allow student access to "Worked Example" while working on this Homework. By default, students will be allowed to access a "Worked Example" while working on the Homework. Uncheck the box to disable this feature.
