There are 3 types of assignments:
Homework: Assignment with graded and/or non-graded items. Might include Study material, Videos, Flashcards, Activities, and/or Quizzes with one or multiple attempts per quiz/activity.
Test: Think of these like your Midterm or Final exams. A Test can also have a time limit (timed test).
Live poll: Live quiz (during a class) with Questions and activities provided in real-time by your instructor. Each question can have participation and/or efficacy points based on your instructor's preference.
