AssignFocus™ is a great way to help you guide student learning! This tool enables teachers to give students up to two assignments at a time from across all DreamBox standards. The student receives up to two lessons per assignment, depending on the proficiency they demonstrate in the first lesson. As soon as a student completes their first lesson, they will receive the second.

Assignments will not alter students' learning trajectory in DreamBox. After the students have completed their assigned lessons, they will continue down their adaptive learning path.


You can access the AssignFocus™ functionality from the AssignFocus™ tab in the Insight Dashboard when viewing your classroom roster or an individual student's profile page. Select the AssignFocus™ tab from the row of tabs at the top of your screen.

From the AssignFocus™ tab, select the Add Assignment button. You will be presented with three drop-down menus.

Select a Grade Level, a Domain, and then the specific Standard or Cluster you wish to assign from the drop-down menus.

If you have selected a Standard or Cluster in the classroom view, you will see three columns. These columns list which students have not started working through lessons associated with the standard, which students have completed lessons associated with the standard but have not demonstrated comprehensive proficiency, and which students have demonstrated proficiency of the standard.

Check the boxes next to all students you wish to assign a lesson to, then click the green Add Assignment button in the upper-right corner of the dashboard.

The next time a student logs in, they will see their assignments appear on the lesson selection screen. The assignments will be marked with the following icon:
