Preview assignment as teacher¶
You can also preview an assignment as a teacher after you have added them. Follow these steps to preview an assignment in Overview mode:
On the Courses page, click the course that includes the assignments you want to preview.
On the Overview page, click the Preview button.
Within the Guide Editor, the “View as Teacher” setting defaults to off, so select the settings gear and ensure it is toggled on. When View as Teacher is toggled on, you can see additional guidance appear in the Guide that students can not see.
Each time you preview an assignment, it opens as new. Anything you may have added as notes to your preview is not saved.
