Assignment Window
The assignment descriptions are displayed in the text box on the upper right hand side of the window.

Course Descriptions
Utah State Board of Education (USBE) is currently adding assignment descriptions to the courses making it easier to distinguish between courses. Currently there are descriptions for Foreign Language, Heath Movement and Fitness, Language Arts, Mathematics, and most of the CTE courses.

Educator Screen
When adding an assignment you can now hold your mouse over the assignment for about a second and it will display the assignment code used in CACTUS and the course description. (If it has been posted). This also works for current assignments.
