Editing, closing, and deleting assignments in Imagine MyPath


This article applies to the following products:

  • Imagine MyPath
  • Imagine Purpose
  • Imagine Science Corner

MyPath assignments can be edited, closed, or deleted from the Assignment Summary page. The specific edits that can be made are:

  • Updating an assignment's name and/or associated icon
  • Adding and/or removing students
  • Changing the assignment's status from active to closed, or deleting it entirely
  • Adding, deleting, or changing the assignment's due date


You can only change the content in the assignment or reorder the lessons in the assignment if the assignment is still a draft. Once the assignment has been assigned, even if no students have begun work on it yet, its lessons are locked.

 To edit an assignment:

  1. Log in to the Imagine MyPath suite.
  2. Choose Assignment Builder in the left navigation pane.
  3. Select an assignment card on the Assigned tab to view the Assignment Summary


  4. Click edit ( edit_pencil_icon.png ) in the area(s) you want to modify, then follow the instructions in the table below.
    The table below details each type of change you can make. 
    Name Description
    Assignment Details 

    The pencil icon to the right of the assignment's name allows you to edit the name and icon associated with the assignment. An icon is required for assignments for students in Grades 2 and below; otherwise, it is optional.

    Modify as desired and click Save.


    The Status tile displays the status of the assignment. Assignments can be active or closed. If you close the assignment, students can no longer work on it.

    You can also delete the assignment from this screen.

    Make your selection and click Change Status.

    You'll be warned that closed assignments cannot be reactivated, and deleted assignments cannot be restored. Click Change to Closed to continue closing the assignment, or Change Status to confirm you wish to delete it.


    An assignment automatically closes once all assigned students complete it, but you can close it manually before then if you want. To view the assignment in the educator portal after you've closed it, switch to the Closed tab. 

    Closed assignments are removed from the students' list of assignments, even if a student has not completed all the lessons.


    The Students tile displays which students are expected to complete the assignment. You can add or remove students from this page; for further instructions, refer to Creating and assigning an assignment in Imagine MyPath

    Click Save when you're done adjusting the list of assigned students; you'll receive a confirmation at the top of the screen.


    If the assignment is active, students can only be added to the assignment before its due date. A workaround is to extend the due date and then add students. 

    Due Date

    The assignment due date is for informational purposes only; students may still work on the assignment even after its due date.

    To select a new date, use the calendar. You can also select No due date.

    Once you've made your selection, click Save and you'll receive a confirmation message.


If a student has not yet completed their assignment, any edits made to that assignment will be visible the next time they work on it. For example, if you change the assignment name, students will see the new name in their assignment list.
