Instructors often use LaunchPad's Flashcards to help students better understand the concepts necessary for their course. The steps below will show you how to complete a Flashcard assignment.

Click on the Flashcard assignment

In your LaunchPad Table of Contents
 

Choose your study mode

You can choose between two study modes:

  1. Stack Mode
  2. Table Mode
 

Stack Mode

In Stack mode, cards are shown one at a time in the center of the screen, as if you're holding your flashcards in a stack.

  1. Click the flip card link (or double-click the card) to flip the card over.
  2. Click the checkbox in the upper-right corner of the card to mark it for quizzing.
  3. Click "START QUIZ" to quiz yourself on some cards.
  4. Click "SWITCH TO TABLE MODE" to switch into Table mode.
  5. Click "ARRANGE CARDS" to arrange cards in your stack in alphabetical order, in order by status, or randomly.
 

Table Mode

In Table mode, cards are arranged on a simulated "table", where you can drag them around to arrange them into groups.

  • Double-click a card to flip it over.
  • Click and drag cards to move them around the table as much as you like.
  1. Click the checkbox in the upper-right corner of the card to mark it for quizzing.
  2. Click "START QUIZ" to quiz yourself on some cards.
  3. Click "SWITCH TO STACK MODE" to switch into Stack mode.
  4. Click "ARRANGE CARDS" to arrange cards in your stack in alphabetical order, in order by status, or randomly.
 

Click Arrange Cards

Flashcards will, by default, be arranged alphabetically, but you can choose how you would like to arrange the cards to suit your preference.

 

Arrange cards to suit your preference

  1. Alphabetically. Cards will be arranged alphabetically, as they were when you first started the activity.
  2. By Status. Cards will be arranged with learned cards first, then cards you needed help with, then missed cards, then unquizzed cards.
  3. Randomly. Cards will be arranged in random order.
 

Take quiz

You can quiz yourself on the cards at any time by clicking Start Quiz.

 

Choose which cards to quiz yourself on

  1. Unlearned. Cards that you either haven't quizzed yourself on yet, or that you tried but gave up on during a quiz.
  2. Learned. Cards that you got right on a previous quiz.
  3. Checked. Cards that you've checked off.
  4. All. All cards in the flashcard set.
