Welcome to Chalk's guide to taking full advantage of the Assessment Solution as an administrator!
This series of lessons is a structured how-to guide of Assessment features, and how to get full value of the Assessment solution for your school or institution.
Important Note: It is important that all of the admin portions of Chalk are setup according to school standards ahead of teachers using Markboard, because once assessments are created, grades input, or attendance is taken, you will need to reach out to email@example.com for assistance in changing different parts.
