How do I change a section's course or unit assignment?

Follow
You can change which course or unit a section of students is assigned to in two different places:
  1. From your homepage (studio.code.org/home) when you're signed in - recommended if you're updating many sections to *different* courses or units
  2. From the course or unit you want to assign that section to - recommended if you're updating many sections to the *same* course or unit

Assigning a section to a course or unit and keeping that assignment up-to-date as the class progresses is helpful for two reasons: 

  1. It ensures that your students will start in the right place when they sign in: Students in a section will always start in the course or unit they were assigned to when they sign in. Only one course can be assigned to a section at a time, but students can continue to access any other course at any time by visiting their homepage (studio.code.org/home) once they sign in.
  2. It makes it easier for you to view a section's most recent progress in the Teacher Dashboard: When you view progress for a section in the Teacher Dashboard, each section will default to the course or unit they are currently assigned to. You can always change the course you're viewing progress for at any time using the "Course or Unit" dropdown list. 

Option 1 - Updating section assignment from your homepage

This option is recommended if you need to update many sections to *different* courses or units at the same time.

  1. From your list of sections on the teacher homepage, click the down-facing arrow on the far right of each section. Screen_Shot_2018-05-07_at_8.45.08_AM.png
  2. Click the 'edit section details' option. This will open a new window where you can edit that section's settings and change the assigned course or unit.

Option 2 - From the course or unit you want to assign to your section

This option is recommended if you need to update many sections to *the same* course or unit at the same time.

  1.  Go to the course or unit overview page for the materials you want to assign
    • CS Principles
    • CS Discoveries
    • CS Fundamentals - from this page, go to "view course" for the Course you want to teach
  2. Select the section you want to assign the course or unit to from the Current Section drop-down at the top of the page.
    • Note: any sections in the drop-down with a green checkmark next to them are already assigned to that course or unit

  3. Tap the orange "Assign to section" button to assign the current section to the course or unit you're viewing. The "Assign to section" button should turn green and say "assigned" when it has been successfully assigned to the section

  4. If you want to quickly undo the assignment you just did, hover over the green "assigned" button until it says "Unassign" and tap it again to unassign that section from the current course or unit
    • NOTE: you don't need to unassign a section from a course or unit before assigning that section to a new course or unit.
