12 Types of Assignments Class work- Guided practice given to help students get acquainted with problems from different sections. Homework- Independent practice given to help solidify the lesson for each student Quizzes- Some are announced, and some are “pop” but both allow students and teachers to know what parts of the material needs to be polished before a test. Tests- Most tests are given at the end of a chapter to tell teachers what students have mastered, and possibly what may need to be worked back into the curriculum.
