We highly recommend you review Homework Assignment Requirements and Best Practices before beginning to create Homework Assignments.

NOTE: Make sure to require that your students submit answers to every question. If they don’t, the questions won’t auto-score, and you’ll have to manually input the assignment grade in the gradebook. You may want to tell students verbally, as well as include a statement in the homework activity's directions. Also note that if your students work in two tabs at once they may receive incorrect grading of their assignments.

Be sure flash is activated in your browser.

It's important to note that you can change the settings in Homework for each question or for groups of questions.
