I have found the lesson I want to assign in the curriculum, how do I assign it to students?
Once you have the lesson you would like to assign in the curriculum you can assign it two ways:
Assigning right from the Curriculum:

I am ready to assign a lesson but do not want students to complete all its parts, how can I remove specific parts? (i.e. extended response)
RightPath allows you to adjust its lessons as you need. You can assign the whole lesson exactly how it is, or you can remove pieces of it before assigning it.
When you are ready to assign and are on the LESSON ASSIGN page (see Q4) you are going to want to adjust the Lesson Components piece. Instead of INCLUDE ALL you are going to want to switch the radio button to INCLUDE ONLY, uncheck the components you do not want to assign.
Can I postdate assignments?
Yes, you can! When you are ready to assign, and you are on the Lesson Assign page (see Q4) you will be able to adjust the start and end dates as far out as you would like to.
I have accidentally assigned a lesson twice, how do I unassign one?
No problem, a lesson can be unassigned for students that have not started it and locked for those who have. Navigate to the Assignment Search page by going to Lessons and down to Assignment Search. Locate the “extra” assignment and click on it. Go to the Students tab and unmark the classes or students it was assigned to. Click SAVE when you are done.
*This will remove the assignment for the students that did not open it and will lock it for those who have started it.
How do I make changes to a RightPath lesson by adding my own content and changing some of the questions before assigning it?
Great! We recommend if you do this you create your own copy of the curriculum, so it is all stored together. You can start by using curriculum as a shell and removing anything you do not want. Follow the steps below:
1. Copy the curriculum down (owner would be YOU- the teacher)
2. Rename the curriculum to something different than the RRT curriculum
3. Select the lesson you would like to change by clicking the stack of books.
4. Copy the name of the lesson
5. Click Copy Library Item
6. Paste the name of the lesson in the NAME box
7. Replace the lesson in their own curriculum by placing a checkmark next to the curriculum they just renamed.
8. Click COPY (this will give them edit permissions)
9. Click the Contents Tab edit, add or delete anything in the lesson.
*To add additional items, use the blank text boxes at the bottom of the Content tab.
How do I print a Learning Gap Analysis from the RightPath Curriculum?

By default, most of multiple-choice sections (Independent Practice & Test Ready sections) are and do not require teacher attention. However, you can view your student’s work and change grading if necessary.
*Extended Response and some Test Ready questions will require teacher attention for grading.
If the student chose a wrong answer you will see the question is marked red (example question 1 below) if the student answered the question correctly you will see it marked in green (question 2 below).
The highlighted green answer is the correct answer choice.
If for some reason you would like to give credit or take away credit for an answer choice, you can override the system and mark the question incorrect or correct. If you do this you will need to click UPDATE GRADE before closing out.
Grading Extended Response:
If an assignment has extended response questions, it will need teacher attention before a grade can be assigned.
