Program directors at residencies and other medical training programs using Med-Challenger’s group education management controls will find several new updates to our Assignments feature.

Our recent update makes assignment creation, calendaring, management, and compliance much easier and clear for everyone.


Improved Calendaring and Gantt Charts

Program Directors can utilize calendar and Gantt chart views to lay out a series of assigned activities, manage timelines, and better avoid trainee overloads. Give yourself and your learners a better idea of what to prepare for by scheduling assignments out months in advance. If changes are needed, you can modify assignments on the fly at any time.

We’ve improved the ability to filter and organize assignment calendar and Gantt views.

Improved Assignment Options Menu

Assignments offers an array of “workflow options” for every assignment, allowing faculty and administrators to select how content is accessed, used, and reported. These options allow for a wide variety of applications from open-book study, to tutor modes, to “test-only” behaviors.

We’ve redone the option descriptions for clarity and provided a bit more insight into how one might use each setting during assignment creation and modification.

Assignment Settings


We know a group’s needs are never static and will adapt over time. Med-Challenger Group Assignments were designed with this in mind. Your “setting” options are versatile, easily customizable, and numerous. Need to set a specific time limit on one of your assignments? You got it. Want your learners to have access to the answer key after completion? You can do that, too. The list goes on and on.


  • Set Effective / Due Date

    Set the due date, decide how long you’d like the assignment to be effective, & choose whether or not these settings apply to all assignments.

  • Set Number of Tries

    Decide whether or not you’d like to allow your learners to retake assignments, and set the number of attempts.

  • Set Time Limit

    Would you like the assignment to be timed? If this setting is enabled, the assessment is automatically scored when time expires.

  • Set Passing Score

    The suggested passing score is set at 80 – set the bar higher or lower to fit your needs.

  • Select the Content

    Choose the course you desire – filter by chapter or topic – and select specific exams from within the chosen course. You can even assign Custom Exams.

  • Show Remediation & Answer Key

    If you chose to enable this feature, your learners can benefit from Med-Challenger’s Prescriptive Remediation feature, which offers a suggested learning path to address their individual weaknesses

  • Select Assignees

    Issue the same assessment/exam to all assignees, or assign them individually or by group.

  • Assignee Notifications

    Decide if your learners receive notifications on the date the assignment is created, when they can start the assignment, both, or neither.

  • Assignment Completion Notifications

    Decide if you’d like to receive notifications when each assignee completes an assignment, when an assignee fails to complete an assignment, and/or on the date the assignment is due.
