Now, for classes synced with Google Classroom, you can assign the same grading option all at once when creating a batch of assignments from the Resource Library.
Reuse your assignments directly in your MusicFirst Classroom
🍬 If you're a MusicFirst user, you're in for a treat!
We want to offer a platform that helps you optimize your time. That's why we've designed features like being able to reuse an assignment you've already created for different classes (tutorial here).
💡Please remember that in order to reuse an assignment, it must be added to the Resource Library.
Now you can also reuse assignments directly from your class in MusicFirst, without the need to open Flat for Education.
💪🏻 This will streamline your planning process.
Create an assignment directly from a score
Talking about time optimization ⏰
Now you can make assignments straight from a score. That means whether you're opening a score you already have or creating a new one, you can quickly turn it into an assignment for your students with just a few clicks. But there's more!
When you're setting up your task, you can assign it to different classes. And you can customize different settings for each class such as:
- Different publication and due dates
- Grading specifications
- Assignment distribution to an entire class or specific student groups
- ... and much more!
