Altering Derivative Settings on an Assignment
IECs and their students can choose to start writing an essay from:
A blank document: We include only the Prompt and word count
Content Plan: We include content plan details tagged to the essay (Content Plan for an assignment can be edited on the assignment card and on the Content Plan page).
Another Assignment: A "derivative essay" is one a student starts writing from another assignment.
IECs and Students can choose how they want to start writing an essay - including making it a derivative essay - on the assignment card. This option only exists for assignments that the student has not yet Started Writing.
Ops/Support team members can also update the following two settings for any essay:
The "Start Writing From" setting
If "Start Writing From" is "Assignment", then the parent assignment can be selected
