Understanding the Assignment Builder in Imagine MyPath

Note

This article applies to the following products:

  • Imagine MyPath
  • Imagine Purpose
  • Imagine Science Corner

Imagine MyPath's Assignment Builder feature enables educators to preview all K–12 lessons and also assign them to individual students, multiple students, or an entire class

Assignments created in Assignment Builder may complement students' individualized learning paths, offer extra practice opportunities, or provide additional context and support to help students master a specific subject. In contrast to the auto-assigned learning paths, Assignment Builder gives teachers control over the selection and sequence of lessons provided to students.

The differences between Assignment Builder lessons and the lessons contained in the learning paths are explained in the following table. 

  Assignment Builder lessons Learning Paths
Student Access My Assignments section in the student portal Subject section in the student portal

Educator experience:

The Assignment Builder provides teachers with the following tools and resources:

  1. Lesson Explorer to find and preview lessons and assign them to students
  2. A card for each assignment you've already created and assigned to students; click in to a card to open the Assignment Summary to review student progress data and edit the assignment
  3. Links to draft assignments you're currently compiling but have not yet assigned 

 Permissions

Both teachers and administrators can preview the lessons; to assign them to students, you must have classes associated with your account. Student data on assignment progress is only visible to the teacher who assigned the lesson.

Student Experience

Students who have assignments will see a My Assignments card on their homepage.

By clicking it, they will be directed to the My Assignments page, where they can access their new or ongoing assignments by clicking Go.
After selecting a particular assignment, they will be taken to their course map, which presents the lessons in the order specified by the teacher.

If a student exits a lesson before completing it, they will resume where they left off when they return to that specific assignment.
