About creating assignments

The Assign feature lets you manually create your own Fast ForWord assignments. If you have not yet added students to mySciLEARN, see Add, edit, and delete students.


By default, mySciLEARN enables Auto Assign for all schools. To use the manual assignment method, you’ll need to disable Auto Assign for the student. See the following topics for steps:

You can only assign components when a license and Support Package agreement is available. For more information see Manage licenses for your students. If you have any questions, contact Scientific Learning Customer Support.
