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

From the home page, click "+ Add New"


Click "Homework" from the "Add a new assignment" screen


Click the "Basic Info" tab to edit the assignment title, subtitle, and instructions

The Directions field provides a good place for you to instruct your students to click Submit for every question, even if they intend to leave their answer blank. Once you've made changes, click Save.

Click the "Assignment" or "Assign Due Date" tab

Here you can change the due date and time, grace period settings, and gradebook settings. If you make changes, click Assign.

Click the "Settings" tab to edit the number of attempts, set a time limit, and control question delivery for ALL questions

You can also allow or disallow students to save and continue their work, and choose to scramble the order of questions and/or answer choices. If you make changes, click Save when you're done.

It's important to note that you can change the settings in Homework for each question or for groups of questions. See the help articles below for more information.


Click the "Questions" tab to add questions to your Homework assignment

If your Homework assignment has Search Questions and Review & Modify tabs instead of a Questions tab, see the help article How can I create a quiz using LaunchPad's question filters? to learn more about adding questions from the question banks.

For more information on adding and editing questions in a Homework activity, see the following help articles.


Click "Done Editing"

When you are finished creating the assignment, click the Done Editing button in the upper left corner.

Return to the home page, assign, or continue editing

Once the Homework activity is created, you can return to the home page, assign the Homework, or make additional edits by clicking the buttons in the top toolbar.
