Discovery Education Studio provides an opportunity to assign boards to pupils so they can interact and edit a copy of the board for various assignments.
Note: When assigning content with pupils, pupils must have a Discovery Education account and your classes must be set up. If you are unsure how to do either, explore these articles:
Once a board is shared, you can click the Assign button in the upper right corner to send to pupils. When content is assigned to pupils, the following options are available:
- Step 1 - select the date you want content to appear on pupils learning plans as well as the date for when content or work should be completed by
- Step 2 - select the class (or grouping of pupils) to which something should be assigned
- Step 3 - confirm the settings of your assignment and click OK
Once a pupil project is assigned, teachers can access it from the Classrooms button from your My DE homepage. If the project has a quiz embedded in it, it will appear as a Studio Quiz. Otherwise, it will appear as a Slideshow or Board.
Pupils can access assignments from their My DE homepage.
When a board or slideshow is assigned to a pupil that contains only text and resources (no quizzes), pupils can interact with the content. Once finished, they click Mark as Complete to let you know they are finished with that assignment.
When a board or slideshow that contains a quiz is assigned to pupils, they are able to interact with the content and answer the question(s) provided. Once they are finished, they click Submit Assignment to return it to you for marking.
Once pupils have completed an assignment, the teacher can access the results through the Assignments list. Projects without quizzes show a completion rate for pupils. Studio Quizzes can be marked through the Dashboard. Single and Multiple Answer questions are automatically graded. Short Answer quizzes can be marked by the teacher using the embedded rubric. The teacher can also leave comments.
Pupils can access their mark as well as teacher feedback within the Studio project by clicking Review Assignment on the board or slideshow.
