    Are we able to change the status options of the students  to word 25% finished , 50% finished 75% finished as this gives me a better gauge on how much work they have achieved so far as apposed to just not started,  working on and finished?

    Also is there a way to make the assignment into a usable form without having to load a word doc into file cabinet etc? I loaded a maths assignment through WYSIWYG and then the student had to copy it and paste it into his reply... then he could type in his answers. a little messy but for me a lot faster than having to try explain to a 8 year old to save his word doc, up load to his filing cabinet etc ?
