You can add assignments to your assignment units from the Table of Contents or from the Assignments tab. We'll cover both options in this article.

Assign pages and other resources from the Table of Contents.

Note: When adding assignments to units from the table of contents, we strongly suggest that you add assignments one topic or resource at a time, as opposed to a whole section or chapter at once. If you assign an entire chapter at once then all topics or resources within that chapter will have the same due date and point value, if you set one. Additionally, if you'd previously assigned individual topics or resources with unique due dates and point values, then the due date and point value that you set at the chapter level will override your previous settings. Any time you assign an entire chapter you will see this warning.


From the Table of Contents, navigate to the page or resource you wish to add to your assignment unit. Hover your cursor over the title. The Options menu will appear at the right of the title.


Click on Options. From the drop-down menu, click Assign.


In the Manage Assignment screen, use the drop-down menu to select an assignment unit that you have already created. After you have completed the rest of the assignment information, click Assign. For more information on completing this screen, please see the help article How do I create assignments?.


From the Assignments tab on your homepage, you will now see the new assignment added to to an existing assignment unit.
