Auto-marked exercises save you time spent marking. Teacher-marked exercises make it easy for you to continually collect evidence of learning. Based on your feedback, we have made it much simpler for you to create, manage and share exercises with your students and colleagues.
Lesson Plans have been replaced with Exercises
When you go to Teach you will see we have removed the Lesson Plan and Lesson Activity layers: you now just see the exercises from those Lesson Plans directly. They are still separated into 2 tabs: those you have created and those other teachers have created.
Filtering exercises by category and type
You can now find exercises more easily. You can filter by Category (Listening, Speaking, Reading and/or Writing) and by Type (Auto-Marked or Teacher-Marked). You can also sort by creation date and by how other teachers have rated the exercise.
Simplified exercise creation
It is now super easy to add exercises to a section. Simply ‘Select Existing’ to find an exercise that was created in a different section and add it to this one. Or + Create New, select the exercise type (Auto- or Teacher-Marked), type your title, select the skill or skills the exercise will focus on, and start adding your questions. When you are ready, you can share any exercise in the section with your students for them to complete.
