Using ASSISTments with Google Classroom and need support?

If you’re a new user and want to see ASSISTments in action, these video tutorials can help. We’ll walk you through the basics from making an account and creating an assignment to assessing class performance. And for even more support, see our training decks below.

Create an account

To create an account:

  1. Enter the ASSISTments platform
  2. Select sign-in in the the upper right hand corner and follow the series of handshakes with Google Classroom to connect your account
  3. Or, you can first find the content you would like to assign and click the Assign to Google Classroom button to connect your Google Classroom account and create your account in ASSISTments
  4. You will be asked to complete two sets to handshakes with Google
  5. You can then import your classes from Google Classroom
  6. If you are not designated as a Teacher by your school's administrator, we may need to validate your account manually

Select and assign content

In order to create your first assignment:

  • Find the content you want to assign from within the platform or from the Explore Content page on the website. We offer curricula that are open source and available for free to teachers as well as custom problem sets built by ASSISTments. If you select textbook content you will need to reference the textbook itself
  • Navigate to your desired problem set by selecting the grade level, unit and problem set
  • Select all problems or choose only the ones you want to assign
  • Click the Assign to Google Classroom button at the top of the screen
  • Choose your class, designate release and due dates, and complete your assignment

Assist students through immediate feedback

Students can access the assignment in the Google Classroom stream or in classwork tabs.

  • Click on the link next to the ASSISTments logo that will take them to the assignment in a new tab
  • Questions appear individually on the page
  • Left left pane shows the number of problems in the assignment and tracks student performance
  • The bar on the right side of the screen tracks partial credit and features a show answer button
  • Students can also upload an image to show their work or supplementary materials

Assess class performance

The assignment report allows teachers to use student performance to inform classroom instruction.

  • Teachers can access the assignment report in their Google Classroom stream or classwork tabs. Clicking on the assignment displays the report.
  • Clicking the question ID will display the question
  • Assignment and questions performance average, common wrong answers, and percent of students who selected the common wrong answer are shown
  • The report tracks individual student performance on each question either by name or as anonymized lines
  • Teachers can add comments and assign a grade on open response questions

For even more support, we have created training decks to get you started. Our training include four modules:

  1. Overview of ASSISTments
  2. Finding and assigning content on ASSISTments
