Homework / Assignments

A major new feature of the Squeebles Connect series of apps is the ability to set assignments for your children made up of specific questions you have selected. Assignments can be set for individual children or whole groups at once, with the results available for you to view once they have attempted the assignment at least once. Pass marks, pass times, questions types and more can be set for each assignment, making it possible for you to hone in one the exact types of challenges each child most needs.

The Assignments Overview Page

Tap the "Assignments" button in the main parent / teacher zone menu to access the assignments overview page (below, left).

Each assignment you currently have set up is listed on this page. If you have yet to set an assignment up, this page will be blank.

From the assignments overview page, you can access results for each assignment, edit or delete an assignment and add a new assignment. Assignments can be searched for by name, or in the case of school accounts, filtered by which teacher created them.

Adding a New Assignment

To add a new assignment for your children, follow these steps:

Step 1: Tap the "Add New +" button in the top right of the Assignments screen. This will take you to the screen shown above, right.

Step 2: Fill in the following information about your assignment:

  • Title: this is the name of the assignment your children will see
  • Your Notes (optional): these notes are not seen by children - they are for your benefit and allow you to differentiate between similar assignments by adding some notes.
  • Questions: opens the questions grid (see below, left) where you can select which questions to use as a basis for your assignment.
  • Number (#) of Questions: when choosing your times tables questions from the questions grid, you can select any number of questions as a basis for the assignment. However, you can then use the "# Questions" field to choose whether to ask all of them or a selection of 12. We recommend 12 as a good number of questions for most assignments.
  • Question Type: the type of question to ask in the assignment. Choices are "normal" (ie 3 x 6 = ?), "Fill the Gap" (ie 3 x ? = 18), "Word" (ie "if 3 cats each have 6 toys, how many toys do all the cats have in total") or "Mixture", which asks a random selection of the three types of question.
  • Due Date: the date the assignment must be completed by.
  • Pass Mark: the score that has to be achieved to consider the assignment "passed".
  • Pass Time (optional): an optional time limit that must be met in order for the assignment to be considered "passed". Note that the pass mark must also be met - getting all the questions wrong really quickly doesn't count as a pass!
  • Assign To: which children should see this assignment when they log in?
  • Teachers (school accounts only): which teachers should be able to see the results of this assignment.

Step 3: Press the "Create >" button and your assignment will be saved. Any child you set the assignment for will now see this assignment when they log in and be prompted to complete it.

Editing an Assignment

To edit an assignment, tap the "Edit" button next to the assignments name in the list on the Assignments page. This will take you to the Edit Assignment page (above, right).

Note there are a few limitations when editing assignments:

  • You cannot edit an assignment where the due date has passed.
  • You cannot edit some information about an assignment if a child has already attempted it, to avoid confusion in the reporting of results.

Viewing Assignment Results

To view the results of an assignment, tap the "Results" button next to the assignment's name in the list on the main Assignments page.

This will take you to the page shown below, left, showing a list of each pupil the assignment was assigned to and an overview of their best mark, whether they've passed or not and when they last attempted the work (if they have at all).

By tapping the "Attempts >" button you can see a list of all attempts that child has made and from there, a breakdown of each attempt and their answers to each question (above, right).
