CodeHS lets you create assignments and add them to any Course while you're teaching it! You can do this directly from the Assignments App, or you can create individual assignments in your Create App to assign them later.

Create and Edit Assignments from the Assignments App

To create an Assignment directly from the Assignments App, click the Add button > Assignment:

From here, you can choose the type of assignment, add activity details, configure, and finish creating your assignment!

More detailed information about each step is below:

  1. Choose Activity Type: Select which type of assignment you want to create. For Coding Exercises, pick from all the languages available on CodeHS including JavaScript, Python, Java, and more! Learn more about the different types of assignments here.

  2. Activity Details: Name the assignment, add a description/directions, starter code, test cases, solution code, and other details (depending on the Activity Type selected).

  3. Configure: Adjust settings for the assignment like Due Dates, Access Controls, and Autograding.

  4. Finish: Preview and finalize the Assignment.

Co-Creating and Editing Shared Assignments

Co-teachers with edit permission can edit custom assignments in their shared courses. Learn more about permissions in Adding a Co-Teacher to Your Section and Course.

While previewing an assignment, you can view more information about the assignment in the More > About tab, including the assignment's owner and when it was last edited.

Managing Custom Assignments from Your Create App

If an assignment is not assigned to any course, you can still access and edit it from the Create App.
