In the navigation bar at the top you will see:

  • The point total and if you have earned points toward that point total;
  • The due date and time.

Under policies you will learn:

  • The due date and time;
  • Which attempt (if your teacher is giving you more than one) will be reported to the gradebook;
  • If you can save and return to a question after starting the activity.

Click "Start the Homework" or choose to "Attempt" a particular question

Because homework assignments allow you to submit answers to an activity on a question-by-question basis, there are two ways to begin taking the homework:

  1. By clicking the "Start the Homework" button. This will start the activity from the very first question in the activity.
  2. By clicking the "Attempt" button associated with an individual question.


  • If you click "Start the Homework", then the first question in the activity will display;
  • If you click "Attempt", then that specific question will display;
  • From here you can answer the question by using the answer fields that appear.
