After a student opens a vocabulary assignment, they will need to click the "Get Started" button. The total number of words that need to be learned (practiced in the quiz), will be shown on this page.
The quiz will start with a set of eight words (or less if the list is shorter than eight words). Once the student reaches the end of the set of eight, they will see a progress page.
If they're ready to finish quizzing on the remaining words, they can click "Continue Practicing" or wait for the quiz to advance automatically after five seconds. If they would prefer to exit and return to the remaining words at a later time, they can click the X in the top left corner. Their progress on the first eight words will be saved, and they can finish the remaining words later.
If they click the X to exit, they will then see the overview page for the assignment, with an indicator of how many words were practiced ("learned") and the total number that need to be practiced in order for the assignment to be marked complete (shown above the progress arc). If the student is working on the quiz after the due date has passed, they will see a "Late" label on this page.
Once the student finishes working through a full list, they will see a final progress page at the end of the final quiz segment with a "View all assignments" button.
Clicking "View all assignments" will take them to the assignments dashboard page. The assignments dashboard shows all of a student's vocabulary and grammar assignments, along with whether their statuses are completed, unstarted, or unstarted (late).
This page can also be reached by clicking "Classrooms" in the banner at the top of the page. Students can click the blue title of an assignment to start the quiz or lesson.
Students also have the option of clicking "Vocabulary" at the top of the page, which will take them to a page that combines class assignments with any personal lists that they've made for their own study purposes.
The progress arc on this page shows progress for any personal lists they've made. Any assignments that they've been assigned will appear in a section titled "My Assignments". They can click the "Quiz" button to the right of an assignment title to start the quiz.
