When working with assignments in PowerTeacher Pro, use the following best practices.

  • For graded assignments, include complete descriptions with a summary of the work the student is expected to complete.
  • For instructional days when no graded assignments are due, create an assignment to encompass the student engagement for the day.
    • Enter a description of the work that students are expected to complete. For example, "Watch and take notes on my recorded teaching on the Civil War; begin writing an essay about the causes of the Civil War.” 
    • Choose whether to include the assignment towards grading and if parents or students should see the assignment.
    • If you do not want to count the engagement assignment for grading, select Collected Only in the Assignment Type field.
    • If you do not want parents and students to see the assignment or scores, choose Never in the Publish Assignment field and deselect Publish Scores.
  • Use the Comment field to note specific details about the student’s engagement.
    • Enter the word "[Contact]" in the comment to designate any student, parent, or guardian contact.
