  1. Hello,

    Can you let me know if there is a way that I can assign a specific curriculum assignment to my students. Thanks

      1. Is there a way to assign lessons to just one student in a class? That way when they log in they see exactly what they need to do? This helps with differentiation in the classroom.

        1. Unfortunately, you can not assign lessons to individual students – only to a whole class.

  2. I used to group and score lessons by number of words typed. That information is no longer available. It was a less subjective way than the current information of estimated time. Since I do not know what the typing speed is used to determine estimated time, I cannot convert that into time for my students.

    1. Hi Rachel,

      Here is an option you can use to resolve this problem:

      Typing.com shows an estimated time to complete based on a 30wpm average. Since WPM is just “words per minute” it’s very easy to figure out the words. If it takes 10 minutes at 30 wpm, then “10 minutes X 30 wpm = 300 words”. Basically, just multiply the estimated completion time by 30!
      Hopefully that helps!

  3. Jonathan, although it may be quite a bit more work, there is ONE option….
    Only classrooms may be assigned specific lesson restrictions, however, if you want those restrictions to apply to only ONE student, create a class with those restrictions and then move the student into that class. If you have several students then this may be an overwhelming amount of work. However, I usually only have 15-20 students at a time and I manage to make it work. My issue has always been not being able to set up a login time. There are some students I would like to have work only at specific times and make sure they are not late. This encourages time management skills. However, there isn’t a feature for that so I just create a “paused” class and move them back and forth. It’s a bit more time consuming, but it works.
    Maybe you should just create an individual class for each student and you can set them up however you wish.
    Hope this helps.
