The “Assign Time” module allows teachers to set the amount of time they would like their students to spend on a particular subject each day. This module is designed to help students develop consistent study habits and encourage progression in a subject.

When you use the Assigned Time module, the amount of time you’ve assigned is shown above the subject icon in the student’s account and on the student’s assignments tab so they can easily see how long they should be working on each subject.

To update the Assign Time for an individual subject:

  1. Sign in to your MobyMax teacher account. 
  2. Click on the "Assigned Time" link on the Quick Access menu.
  3. Select the "Assign Time" button at the top of the page.
  4. Place a checkmark in the empty box next to the subject you want to assign time in..
  5. Click on the "Next" button.
  6. Select the radio button for "Entire classroom" to set assigned time for all students, or choose the "Select Students" option to select specific students you want to update assigned time for.
  7. In the "Assign number of minutes" box, enter in the amount of minutes that students should work in all subjects.
  8. Click on the "Finish" button.


Note: We recommend a minimum of 12 minutes per day for consistent learning. The module will show on the student's Assignment tab when you enter one or more minutes.

Assigned time can be modified at any time by clicking on the "Manage Assigned Time" link while in the module.

The student lab shows the minutes slightly different than the time showed in the teacher reports due to different rounding methods. The teachers report show the usual rounding that goes up and down. However, the student lab only rounds down so that a student with an assigned time of 10 minutes, doesn't stop working when there are 9 minutes and 31 seconds.

Assigned Time can also be updated for all subjects at once.
