Update: In version 1.4, this component has been renamed to Exercises.
Here, you can view the exercises available for the class. If set by your professor, due dates and times for each exercise are shown. Click on any of them to start or continue the exercise. Each exercise has a status:
New: You have not started the exercise.
In progress: You are working on the exercise, but it has not been submitted yet.
Missed: You failed to submit the exercise before the deadline.
Submitted: You submitted the exercise. Responses cannot be changed.
If your submission has been graded, you may be able to view the overall score. Note that professors can choose to withhold scores, so the absense of a score does not indicate the absense of grading.
