6.5.6 Advanced Options
The Prevent automatic assessments option allows
you to postpone automatic assessments for up to 7 days prior to the
beginning of the assignment (defaults to 2 days). Postponed automatic
assessments will occur as soon as the assignment is completed or its
end date passes. Objective completion assessments will only be
delayed up until the start date of the assignment.
Extensions are not taken into account
The instructor can choose whether to assign the Homework to the entire
course or only to some students in the course (including a single student,
or no students). If you click the option for "specific student(s),"
you will see a list of the names of students in the course with checkboxes.
NOTE. When an assignment is scheduled for some students, rather than the
entire course, the assignment will be considered extra credit in the
ALEKS gradebook. This ensures that the assignment will not hurt
any student's grade.
Next, you will be given the choice of how your students will access the
Homework assignment. There are two options:
Students choose when to start Homework assignment after it is available
Students have the flexibility to choose when to start the Homework
assignment so that they can continue to work in other parts of ALEKS
without being forced into the assignment.
Included in this option is the ability to password-protect the Homework
assignment, providing more control of when and where the Homework
assignment can be taken.
Students must begin the Homework assignment as soon as it is available
Students are "forced" into the Homework assignment as soon as they log
in, once it becomes available. With this option, students will not be
able to work in any other areas of ALEKS until they have completed the
Homework assignment. See
for examples of how ALEKS will behave when this option is used.
