About Staggered Mode
Staggered Mode allows instructors to select a group of questions to place in an In-Class Assignment, but release each problem individually, as smaller groups, or open and close individual questions within a group.
From your Chrome or Firefox Browser, navigate to our login page. Enter your credentials for your existing instructor account. Then select Launch Web App.
Navigate to the Assignments tab and Select New Activity. If you were already logged in, make sure you are on the In-Class section in the submenu.
Select Mode & Time Limit section from the assignment settings, then under Mode select Staggered.
Using the main panel, you can select Add Problems or Add Problem Pools to add the problems that you choose to your assignment.
Once you have finished adding problems and setting up the other assignment parameters, then you can select Save for Class to wait until class starts for the assignment to go live or Start to have the assignment go live immediately.
When the assignment is Active, click on the assignment to then see a list of the questions within the assignment.
From the student's perspective, they will see a statement letting them know that their instructor has not started any problems in the assignment yet.
You can now choose Start All Problems for all problems to become available to students at once or select Start next to the question or questions that you want students to work on.
Another way to Start the question is through the histogram, Select the assignment, Select Show Results, select the question, and then select Start or End for the question.
Once a problem is started, you can then choose End all Problems to close all questions or select End next to the question that you want to close to close a single question.
From the student's perspective, they will see the word Closed next to questions that were open and have now been closed. They will continue to have access to any questions still open for answers, and will not see any questions that were never started.
Congratulations! You have created an In-Class Assignment with Staggered Mode!
You're all set! As always, feel free to reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
