How do I use live assessments?

In the Learning Navigator, teachers have the capability to use live assessments to check for student understanding. Live assessments are available through the Daily Class Activities or through the Course Map page. When the teacher launches a live assessment, the results for each question for the whole class are visible on the teacher's dashboard in real-time. 

To use live assessments, you’ll need first do the following: Once you are logged into your account, follow these steps to launch an assessment in real-time.
