Assignments allow teachers to select videos, articles, exercises, quizzes, unit tests, or mastery of a specific course for an entire class or to specific students to work on. A variety of reports for different types of assignments allow teachers to see students’ performance, to track their progress, and to identify gaps in understanding.
Creating assignments from the Content tab
To create an assignment, select the content that you want the student(s) to work on from the Assign content page inside of the class using the checkboxes on the right, and click on Assign.
A screen will pop up where you can choose whether you would like students to complete the same set of problems or a different set, when the assignment is due, and which students should receive the assignment.
Creating assignments directly from the content page
To create an assignment from a specific content page, browse our library until you find material that you want your students to interact with. This could be a video, an article, or an exercise. Once you click on a resource, you’ll notice an assignment toolbar near the top of the screen.
Using that toolbar, you can select the class, student(s), and due date you want for that piece of material. Then, clicking Assign will assign it immediately and clicking Save will save it to a Saved tab where you can edit and post it later.
Note: Course Challenges cannot be assigned.
Students will see the assignments listed in order by due date. Assignments due soonest will show up at the top of their list. If you would like to sequence the assignments in a specific order, assign them with slightly different due dates. For example, if you would like your students to access a video or article before trying an exercise, assign the video and/or article with a slightly earlier due to date to encourage students to learn more about the concept before practicing the skill.

I can't find how to assign missions
For teachers who have been using Missions, please note that missions themselves are not assignable with the Assign feature, but you can still select a mission for your class in the Class Settings and view your students' progress on in the Old Progress tab.
You can find more details about accessing Missions information in this article.
That said, with the new Mastery System you CAN assign course mastery, just not missions, and students will be able to work through the course at their own paces.
