Homework Tasks

Homework tasks give the teacher the means to set homework for students and have it automatically marked by the MathsOnline system.

Why use homework tasks?

By utilising the homework-setting features in MathsOnline, teachers can, with just a few minutes' setting up, create days' or weeks' worth of homework tasks for their students. The MathsOnline system automatically informs students when homework has been set, so there is no more for the teacher to do other than occasionally monitor homework progress through MathsOnline real-time reporting tools.

Detailed metrics are kept for every homework task, and for every student, including.

  • The student's grade, efficiency rating, and number of attempts to pass each lesson in the homework task.
  • The class's overall performance, making it easy to rank the students.
  • Whether the student completed the homework on time, late, or not at all.

Teachers use homework to drive students' use of MathsOnline

With minimal effort, homework tasks allow teachers to control the way students use the MathsOnline programme, making sure the work they undertake on MathsOnline is aligned with and complements the work they are doing in class. It also provides a way to set homework that gets automatically marked and time-stamped, which, in tandem with the comprehensive student reports arising from these tasks, provide excellent data for use in parent-teacher meetings.

Method 1 Recommended

Send to MathsOnline a new and complete list of students and teachers. This will overwrite all existing students and teachers.

  • Greatly simplifies rollover process. Download, populate and return the spreadsheet to MathsOnline and we will process your student and teacher rolls for you in one business day.
  • Removes existing student results so students start the new year with a clean slate.
  • After MathsOnline processes your school roll, new logins and passwords will need to be distributed to students and teachers.

Method 2

Using the tools within the Teachers’ Area, manually roll over teachers, classes and students.

  • Students and teachers keep their logins, passwords, and results.
  • A more tedious rollover method, as each class needs to be rolled over manually, students that have left must be identified and deleted, and students and teachers entering the school need to be added.
