Frequently asked questions

Classes with an F## ID: the Tuesday after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Classes with a W## ID: the Tuesday after Presidents Day

What does the F##, W##, S##, or U## mean in my Class ID?
F## is used for Fall Classes (generally classes beginning in August, September, or October that last until mid-December)
W## is used for Winter Classes (generally the shorter class sessions beginning in December or January that last until early or mid-January)
S## is used for Spring Classes (generally classes beginning in January or February that last until late April, early or mid-May)

How do I create a speech assignment?
Open your course from the Desk. On the Assignments tab click the plus icon and go to Speech. From there, you simply add the name of the speech and a short description. Now you can select any or all of the options of the sub-assignments for a Speech. After checking the check box, select a due date and assign the point value. You can select a feedback form from the prefilled list or create your own (see this article for more information). Next you can add Quick Responses, which peer students will select in real-time when a student is speaking. You can also make this a Group Assignment (see this article for more information). Next click "Create" or you can schedule the assignment for a later date. This new assignment will now appear on the Assignments tab. You can expand the Assignment to access the sub-assignments.
