Assignments lets you set Twig's award-winning science films as homework and test your students on what they've learned.
You can track your students' week-to-week progress and see exactly where each student would benefit from some more assistance.
On any Twig film page, click 'Add to assignment'. You can also select additional films you want students to watch as part of the same assignment.
Assign the homework to an entire class, a group or individual students.
Choose a start and end date for the assignment.
When those students next log in to Twig with their student logins, your assignment will be waiting for them.
Assignments is part of Twig’s new teacher view and student view functionality for film pages – providing a tailored experience for teachers and students.
For students, each film now comes with key points, fun facts and a quiz to complete. While the teacher view allows you to plan your lessons, download related learning materials, create assignments and track your students’ progress.
The assignments reporting section lets you see who has started the assignment, who has finished it and how they scored in the accompanying quiz.
You can track individual students' quiz scores over time allowing you to monitor their progress and identify any areas of difficulty.
More and more teachers are ‘flipping the classroom’ – giving their students short videos to watch in advance of lessons, freeing up valuable class time for discussion and ironing out areas of difficulty.
