How to copy existing homework

MyEDiary provides staff and administrators the ability to create new homework based on any previously created homework. This can save lots of time when having to repeatedly assign very similar homework to various students or classes.

Copying Existing Homework

Step 1. To copy existing homework, first navigate to the Homework page by clicking on the 'Homework' icon in your dashboard:

Step 2. Locate the homework you'd like to copy and select the 'Copy' option from that homework's drop down menu on the right:

Step 3. In the popup window that appears, choose which settings from the existing homework you'd like to copy over. 

You have the following options:

  • Title
    It will be automatically populated with 'Copy of [the existing homework title]'. You can change as required but it is advisable to use unique title names if possible.
  • Assigned Students
    Selecting this option will copy over the classes and selected students that the existing homework is currently assigned to
  • Homework Content
