It's a dagger alif–a diacritic peculiar to Quranic writing used to indicate a long A-sound when it is only pronounced and not written, which occurs in a few Arabic words like هَذَا ، ذَلِكَ ، اللَّهُ ، رَحْمَنٌ ، سَمَوَاتٌ ، ثَلَثُمِائَةٍ ، مِمَّ ، هَأَنَذَا. Using this diacritic in everyday writing is not standard in the least, but I suppose the course writers thought it would be a wise idea to use it so learners would have a written indication of the fact that the A-sound in those words is long. They didn't take into account that typing that diacritic for typing exercises would be such a pain.
