Title: Student Practice Assignment: The Basics of Working in ASSISTments

**Question 1a: **

Welcome students! This problem set will help you learn the types of problems and feedback you will get as you complete an assignment in ASSISTments.

If you look to the bar on the left of your screen, you will see how many problems you have completed and how many were assigned to you in total.

Select “Next” as your answer, then click "Submit Answer" in the bottom right corner of the problem and click “Next Problem” to move on to the next problem.

**Question 1b: **

In ASSISTments, if you get the answer wrong, you will get to try again. Mistakes are part of learning, and it’s ok to have to try again. As long as you give your best effort, this is ok and part of learning!

Your teacher will see how many attempts you make on each problem so they know how to best support you.

Select "Next" as your answer below to move onto the next problem.

**Question 6: **

Your teacher may assign you open response questions. For these questions, you will not get immediate feedback for the answer you enter. Your teacher will be able to see your response and can provide feedback directly to you after you finish your assignment.

Here is a video showing you the different ways you can answer an open-response question.

Leave a response for your teacher. This could simply be text or if you watch the above video, you could try inserting a table, creating a mathematical equation, or uploading a picture for your teacher to view. Type your response in the box below and press “Submit.”

**You will see a gray circle with an underlined check [insert image] appear in the bar on the left, showing that you answered correctly but since it is an open response question, you have not been scored yet. **

*Answer Type: Open Response*

**Question 7:**

When you answer the last question in the problem set and submit, you will be directed to a student report which will show you how you did on this assignment. Your teacher may decide to provide you with a numerical score on the assignment. **Remember that the score generated through ASSISTments is not intended to be a grade. It is meant to provide you and your teacher helpful data to help you grow and improve.**
