Viewing and Adding Homework

This article describes how to view and add homework to a specific section as an Admin.

As an admin, you have the ability of viewing and adding homework for the students within your sections.  Homework assignments are visible to students and allow for easy online submissions. You can set homework to be visible just for guardians or for both students and guardians, however you cannot set homework to be visible just for students.

Note:  As an Admin you have the option to rename the term "Homework".  Some common alternative names for "Homework" are "Assignments" and "Coursework".
