What's in the "Content" tab?
The Content tab, also called the "Content library," is where you can learn about and preview all Checkology lessons, exercises, challenges and missions. You can customize your Checkology courses to include any of the assignments found in the Content tab.
To browse assignments in the Content tab, click the arrows on the "Learn," "Practice and extend," and "Fact check" drawers. This will expand the available content in each section.
Please note: You cannot assign content to students from within the Content tab.
To assign content, you'll first need to create a class. You'll then be able to assign content to the class by building a course.

- Star rating
- The star rating is based on the star level the students in your classes select when they complete and submit an assignment.
