The assignments feature on Raz-Kids saves you valuable time while strengthening the connection between what is being taught and what students are practicing. This feature allows you to easily assign your whole class, small groups, or individual students books and resources at developmentally appropriate levels and around specific content areas and topics.
Digital resources give students the opportunity to independently read content�anywhere they have an Internet connection�through the Kids A-Z eLearning portal and mobile app.
By creating groups of students in the Classroom Roster within the Kids A-Z Student Management area, you can easily assign resources to specific groups of students.
With Raz-Kids, teachers can assign various resources to students or groups of students from multiple places on the website:
- Main Resource Pages
Hover over the resource thumbnail to display the Assign feature.
- Individual Resource Pages
Preview the digital resources available for a book and assign those resources to students using the Assign feature on a book's landing page.
Access the Assign feature by hovering over a resource's thumbnail in a list of Search results.
Once you click on the Assign button, simply select the resources you want to assign and the students or groups of students in your roster you want to receive the assignment. The assignment will appear in the students' My Assignments area in Kids A-Z.
Other ways to make assignments include choosing a level for each student in your roster to help them Level Up! and assigning one or more individual resources to a student or group of students using the Custom Assignment feature.
