I’m getting an insufficient permissions error.

This might sound simple but try logging out of your account and signing back in. This usually “refreshes” your account status and should resolve the issue.

My student(s) can’t see my assignments. What can I do?

If your student can’t see your assignment(s), this could be due to a few reasons:

  • They aren’t a part of your class yet. They’d have to be approved by going to the “Students” tab inside the dashboard for their respective class
  • They joined your class after the assignment was created. To resolve this, find the assignment(s) that they are unable to see, click on “Edit Assignment” (indicated by a pencil icon). The Edit Assignment window should pop up — go to “Edit Assignees” near the “Close” button in the bottom right corner and update the assignees. The student will show up if they are enrolled in your Fiveable Classroom.
  • They’re getting an insufficient permissions error. Have them logout and sign back in and try again. If they still can’t see the assignment, remove the student from your classroom and reinvite them.
