Your students may each see different supports for the same problem.
In the Student View, students will (a) see a button in the bottom right corner of the problem allowing them to access the support. Once clicked, the hint, explanation, or answer will appear below the problem body (b).
This feature is on by default. To turn it off for all future assignments, go to Settings, by clicking on your name in the upper-right hand corner of ASSISTments (see picture)
Once in Settings, go to the Feature Settings page and you will see the toggle to turn Student Supports on and off (see picture below). Uncheck the box next to ‘Enable Student Supports’ (a) and click ‘Save’ (b).
Note, once this setting is changed, it will impact all assignments made after the setting was changed.
