Please help.  I inadvertantly created a 4th grade diagnostice assignment for 3rd grade.  How do I remove it?  Thank you, Kathleen

Hi again, Kathleen!

 

Thanks for your question.  If no student has taken the test and the testing window is still open, you should be able to delete the assignment in the Actions pull down to the far right of the screen.  If the window is closed, you will have to edit the assignment and remove all students. 

 

I hope this answers your question.

OK.  I think I need more help.  I am a brand new user with virtually no support systemwide and a 1 day intro in early January.  Which tab would I use to begin to do this?

 

Thank you.  Kathleen
