This article is for Davis 360 products, which include Dosage Calc 360 and Test Success 360. While we use Dosage Calc 360 as an example, this information applies to all Davis 360 products.


There are two types of assignments you can assign to your students in Davis 360: Learning Assignments and Quizzing Assignments. You will find a brief introduction to each assignment type below. 

To learn how to navigate your Assignments page as the instructor and review student performance for completed assignments, see Instructor: Access Actionable Analytics. 

Learning Assignments

Learning Assignments in Davis 360 are module-based assignments addressing a broad priority topic in dosage calculations. The Learning Assignment is typically broken down into 2-4 subtopics, each containing a "Learn" and "Practice" segment for the student to work through. Once the student has completed every topic in the module, a Post-Assessment will unlock to test the student's knowledge and conclude the Learning Assignment.

Learning Assignments follow a "Learn, Practice, Assess" model. 


"Learn"  delivers must-know content in student-friendly multimedia readings.

"Practice" gives students the experience they need to master the content.

Quizzing Assignments

In addition to our readymade Learning Assignments, you also have the ability to create your own Quizzing Assignments to assess student progress on your own terms. Quizzing Assignments are a useful option for instructors who would like to assign homework quizzes covering content across multiple topics, or to create a mock test to help students prepare for an upcoming exam.
