Assignment Book

The Assignment Book lets you manage and monitor your students' work in Accelerated Math. If you have more than one class or school, start by choosing your school and/or class at the top of the page. If you are using groups, use the Group drop-down list to choose the one you want to work with (or the class as a whole); you can also select Class Overview to see an overview of students' current work for all groups and the class.

If this is the first time you've visited the Assignment Book for this class, do the following:

  1. If you see a green box that says you must assign an objective list, click an option to choose whether to select or create a list; then, click Select. You don't need to create your own list if you prefer not to; Accelerated Math already includes an objective list for each library that includes all the library's objectives.
  2. To assign objectives for students, check the box next to each student's name or check the box at the top of the list if you want to select the whole class. Then, click Assign Objectives on the left side of the page. If you would like Accelerated Math to automatically assign additional objectives as needed when you generate a practice, see the Practice preference for the class.
  3. To generate assignments, check the boxes next to student names and click one of the Generate links on the left side of the page, or click Generate Assignments for all students with no work above the student list.

The Assignment Book makes it easy to monitor student work. You can see the following:

  • The date on which unscored assignments of each type were generated. By moving the mouse over the date, you can also see the objectives included in the assignment; for paper assignments, you will also see the form number. Bold dates show you which assignments were generated three or more school days ago.
  • Whether action is needed for each student - you may need to generate an assignment, generate a test, intervene because the student is struggling with an objective, or assign objectives because the student has no or few active objectives. Click a message in the Actions column to begin the action.

The links on the left side of the Assignment Book allow you to

  • assign objectives to students
  • generate practices, exercises, tests, and diagnostic tests for selected students
  • regenerate or delete unscored assignments
  • put objectives on hold, reset student work for objectives, or unassign objectives
  • score assignments using keyboard entry
  • create groups within the class or manage the groups you have already created
  • print the Status of the Class or Diagnostic Reports or regenerate TOPS Reports for specific assignments
  • manage objectives in your list (including mastery criteria)
  • transfer student Accelerated Math work (data) from another class
  • copy settings from another class, including the selected objective list and classroom preference settings
  • view the same math glossary that students see in Renaissance Home Connect (if it is available based on your subscription)

If the Enter Core Progress link is available, click it to go to a research-based progression of knowledge and skills that helps you identify knowledge gaps, differentiate instruction, and determine next steps.

Messages you may see on this page (click the links below for more information):

  • The plug-in is only required if you will be using paper assignments. Click Install Plug-in next to the message to go to a page where you can download the Renaissance Place Print plug-in.

  • If you see this message in a green box, click one of the options in the box and click Select to start creating or selecting an objective list.

Above the list of students, you may also see a link that allows you to generate assignments for all students with no work; if you have students with objectives marked Intervene, you'll see a link that allows you to generate an exercise or diagnostic test for all students who need intervention.
