At this point, you should have your Albert account and have joined your classroom. In this step, we’ll review how to find assignments and use tags.
When a teacher creates an assignment, you will get an email notifying you. You can either click on the link in the email or login to the site and follow the steps below:

What are tags?
Tags let you customize your learning experience.
Let’s say you’re studying for a AP Biology test for Evolution and the Diversity of Life outside of a teacher-made assignment. From the subject guide page, you may select “Evolution and Genetic Change”. As a result, the tags “evolution-and-diversity-of-life” and “evolution” would be highlighted, showing you the 77 questions available for covering both concepts of the evolution and diversity of life and evolution.
Let’s say you want to study with greater specificity and review investigative labs questions related to the two tags. You could do so by selecting the “natural-selection” tag. Now you have a catered set of questions covering not just the diversity of life, and evolution, but also falls under natural selection.
Selecting more tags allows for deeper specificity in your learning experience.
Tags are a powerful way to focus your learning time on the concepts you need the most help on. Whether that’s a specific concept or a broad topic, you can curate your practice session to your own liking.
