How do I add checkpoints, activities, and resources to projects?

Once you've created a project, you can add checkpoints, activities, and resources to the project. You can also copy activities and resources from one project to another.

Checkpoints allow students to get feedback on work before completing the final product of a project. To add checkpoints to a project:

  1. From the project page, click Edit Project.
  2. Under Project Plan, click Checkpoints.
  3. Click ic_add_circle_black_24dp_2x.png Add Checkpoint.
  4. Enter the title and any details for the checkpoint. Indicate whether students will submit a Google Doc, Web link (ex: websites, videos), or Nothing.
  5. If students will submit a Google Doc, you'll need to indicate whether students will be given a blank doc, presentation, or spreadsheet, or if you'll be providing a custom template. If you provide a custom template, students will receive their own copy of the template to submit via the Summit Learning Platform. You can choose a Google Doc from your Google Drive.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Click Save and Close to finish editing the project.

To add activities and resources to a project:

  1. From the project page, click Edit Project.
  2. Under Project Plan, click Activities and Resources.
  3. Click ic_add_circle_black_24dp_2x.png Add Activity or Add Resource.
  4. Enter the title and any details for the activities and resources. For activities, indicate whether you're having students fill out a Google Doc, or Nothing. For resources, indicate whether you're attaching a Web link (ex: websites, videos), Google Doc, or other file from your computer.
  5. If students will be filling out a Google Doc, you'll need to indicate whether students will be given a blank doc, presentation, or spreadsheet, or if you'll be providing a custom template. If you provide a custom template, students will receive their own copy of the template to submit via the Summit Learning Platform. You can choose a Google Doc from your Google Drive.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Click Save and Close to finish editing the project.

If you'd like to copy an activity or a resource from another project to your own project:

  1. From the project page, click Edit Project.
  2. Under Project Plan, click Activities and Resources.
  3. Click the name of the activity or resource you'd like to copy.
  4. Towards the bottom of the screen, click ic_content_copy_black_24dp_2x.png .
  5. Select the course and the project you'd like to copy the activity or resource to, then click Copy.
  6. Click ic_close_black_24dp_2x.png to exit the activity or resource.

You can rearrange checkpoints, activities or resources by clicking and dragging.

You can also add teaching materials to checkpoints, resources, activities, and final products in projects. These teaching materials can only be viewed by teachers, and not by your students. Learn more about the differences between checkpoints, activities, and resources and how they form a project plan.
