Is it possible to have students sign up for their choice activity but then lock them into this activity for "X" period of time?

Yes, you can offer students a choice/sign up day and then adjust the activities to be required thus “locking” them into the activity for a set period of time.

Many schools have a sign up day followed by sessions that last 1, 2, or more weeks.  

To manage this follow the steps below.  (There is also a video in the HELP section of Flex that walks teachers through these steps.)

  1.  Create and schedule the choice activity for the first day of the session. (Students can then sign up.)
  2.  Once students have signed up, take the list of students and create a roster.  (Below is an example of the New Roster screen.)

  1.  Go to the original choice activity and make a copy.
  1.  Edit the copy activity, adjusting the title and selecting a mandatory priority level (Required or   Priority).  Add the roster and additional students as necessary.

  1.  Schedule the mandatory activity for the remainder of the session.


Extra Tip:  When offering the same activity for a different session/roster, make a copy, add to the title which session, change the roster, and schedule.
