Assignments

In creating assignments for my classes, I would like to assign topics more than once. For example: withing a two week period, I want them to do a "ring" in INTRODUCTION three times and a "ring" of COMMON PHRASES three times.

Can someone tell me how to accomplish this. It allowed me to do so once, but not allowing now.

Duo assumes that you are going to assign "level up a skill," and then when the assignment is over, assign "level up a skill" again.

So, there are several things you can do:

Change your "level up a skill" to a shorter time frame, so that you can stack them that way. So if you want your students to level up three times in two weeks, then set the time for five days for "level up a skill" (your first "ring"), and then five more days for the next "level up a skill," and then five days for the last.

You can program this ahead of time by setting the start date later. Then you don't have to think about it for two weeks. (I have forgotten to change the start date on occasion; that's why I bring this up.)

Your second option is to stack dissimilar assignments. I have done this plenty of times. Assign "Level up a skill" for Introduction and then assign "level up a skill" for Common Phrases for the same time frame. (Are you already doing this?)

You could also mix "level up a skill" and XP, or even different levels of XP.

Just be aware that whatever you click on first gets counted first. So, for example, if you assign "level up a skill" in Introduction and then assign 20 XP for the exact same time frame, the system will not count the 20 XP until the skill has been leveled up.

Did I clarify this for you, I hope? If not, let me know, and I will try to explain a different way.
