After you assign an Accelerated Math objective in the Assignment Book, and before you generate the first practice or exercise that includes it, the status of the objective is Assigned (). This means the objective can be included on practices, and Accelerated Math will automatically track the student's progress on the objective. Once you generate a practice or exercise that includes the objective, the status will change to Working (); after that assignment is finished/scored, the status will be Ready to Work () or Ready to Test (), depending on the student's results. If you wish, you can unassign objectives.
In the Practice Preference for each class, you can choose to automatically assign a certain number of objectives to students who have no objectives assigned and none ready for review work. These objectives will be assigned when the students' next practice is generated.
For Extended Response assignments, you do not assign objectives before you generate an Extended Response assignment.
