How do I reuse content from a past semester?

Copy Section will bring in lesson plan content and assigned curriculum, as well as assessments, from one section to an other. You can do this whether it's for the same semester or a different one. 

THIS WILL OVERWRITE ALL CONTENT IN THE SECTION(S) YOU'RE COPYING TO. THIS CANNOT BE UNDONE.

The following tutorial will show you how to combine Copy Section with a timetable from a previous semester, which is useful if you are teaching similar subjects from year to year. For step-by-step instructions on just the Copy Section feature, continue reading.

Step 1:

Start by going to the Semesters page from the gear menu in the top right corner. From there select 'Copy Section' in the top right.

This will open up the window shown below where you can customize what you'd like to copy:  

Step 2:

Select the semester and the section you want to copy from. Once you choose the semester you want to copy from you'll then be asked to select which semester and section you would like to copy your content to.

The following content will then be copied over:

If you’re copying lessons...

  • Lesson plan content
  • Lesson plan attachments
  • Assigned Curriculum
  • Units and their content

If you’re copying assessments…

  • ‘Out of’ mark
  • Assessment weight
  • All Categories from the original section are brought over, and categories existing in the new section will get overwritten.
  • Original due dates will remain the same (remember to change due dates only once the assessments have been copied over successfully.)

Students will not be copied over with assessments.

REMEMBER! THIS WILL OVERWRITE ALL CONTENT IN THE SECTION(S) YOU'RE COPYING TO. THIS CANNOT BE UNDONE.

Any edits made to original assessments while copying takes place may result in an unsuccessful copy.
