The logic behind Grovo's assignments is exactly like distributing a paper worksheet for homework in grade school.
- Once you print out the worksheet and pass it out to the class, no changes that you make on the electronic version of our worksheet will be automatically captured on the worksheets in your students' backpacks
- Every subsequent time that you print and hand out the worksheet, however, the new changes will be reflected
- If you'd like the original group of students to see the changes, you can either collect their worksheets and reassign them the new worksheet, or you can give them an additional worksheet that has the changes
Here are two scenarios that help flesh this out:
Example 1: I have Lesson A, B, and C in Track 1, and a learner has completed all 3 lessons. One day I update Lesson B.
* Does this make Lesson B appear as incomplete for the learner? What will happen when I assign out this track again?
No, there will be no changes to the existing assignment. However, the next time Track 1 is assigned, these changes will be reflected and anyone browsing for this track in the LIbrary will immediately see the changes.
To surface these changes to your learners you can either Cancel the assignment and re-send it or you can send this group of learners just the revised Lesson B as a new assignment.
But the next time you add this track to an assignment, the new version of Lesson B will be included with whatever changes were made.
Example 2: I have Lesson A, B, and C in Track 1, and a learner has completed all 3 lessons. One day I add a new Lesson D to that same track.
* Does this make Track 1 appear as incomplete for the learner, or just Lesson D?
No, it does not. The previously completed assignment will not be altered by this addition, however, anyone browsing for Track 1 in the Library will immediately see the changes.
In this case, it will probably make the most sense to send Lesson D as a standalone assignment to this first group of learners rather than canceling the assignment that many have already completed and re-sending. Each new group that gets assigned Track 1 will see Lessons A, B, C, and D from the outset.
