The Wixie assignment tools make it easy to manage student learning, whether they are in-class or at-home. With Wixie, your students can combine text, images, original artwork and voice narration to build math skills, tell stories, compare information and share their learning. Assigning work to students lets them know how you want to them use Wixie and makes it easy to manage their work, provide feedback, and evaluate effort and achievement.
You can create assignments for students that show at the top of their Wixie home page when they log in.
Assignments only show at the top of student's home pages starting the date you have set them to begin, so you can create all the assignments for a week at one time, but they will only show for students on the days you have chosen.
Use the How to assign a template in Wixie video if you need to learn the steps in this process.
Viewing student assignment work
The fastest way to see how students are progressing on assignments is on the Assignment details page. To view progress on an assignment, select the Assignments folder near the top of the list on the left side of your Wixie home page.
Click the assignment you want to monitor to see details. Use the Class pull-down menu to select the class you want to view, if it is not already shown.
Next to each student’s name, you will see a circle.
- an empty circle means that they have not started working on the assignment
- a solid grey circle means that they have worked on it.
- a solid grey circle with a check in the middle means the students has marked the project as complete.*
*To mark a project as complete, students go to the File menu and choose Mark as Complete.
To look at the each student's work, click the spy glass button near the top of the page.
This will take you to the Students page and will show only the project work for this assignment.
Click through the students in your class list on the left to see their work.
To provide feedback on a student’s project, click the project.
Use the + button on the Feedback tab to share your feedback.
Starting from a blank screen
If you want to have students start from a blank page, you can create a blank page assignment.
Click the New button at your Wixie home page and choose Assignment. At the New Assignment dialog, click the Use Blank Project button. Give the project a name, set the start and end dates, and choose the students. This assignment will show in your assignment list similar to those that you start from a template.
