Organise and manage week-specific unit items

A checklist contains important or required assignments, readings, or other items to complete. Each checklist contains one or more categories, into which checklist items are organised. For example, you might have an “Assignments” checklist with categories for written assignments and quizzes, both of which could have multiple items that must be completed.

How do checklists organise information?

Checklists contain categories, which are used to organise checklist items. For example, you might create the categories Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3, and place week-specific checklist items into the appropriate categories. Alternately, you might use a checklist to organise steps of an assignment. You can assign due dates for checklist items.
