Before you begin

The Assignments icon on the Dashboard shows the number of assignments you have.

Abracadabra! The Assignment Details dialog appears.

  1. Review your teacher’s instructions, if any, and find the material you want to read.
  2. Click the book icon in the Read column. The book opens.
  3. Complete your assignment and click the Benchmark Universe logo to go back to the Assignment Details dialog.
  4. Go to the Done column and click the circle to mark the assignment done.

You can only change the status of an assignment if you marked it done when the Assignment Details dialog is open.

Make sure you are finished with your assignment before you mark it done. You won’t be able to undo the Done checkmark and go back to the assignment if you marked it done and closed the Assignment Details dialog. The Done check mark appears with a gray background the next time you open the Assignment Details dialog.

The gray background is used with the Done check mark to let you know that the assignment is done and not available. Tests are automatically marked complete when you submit.
