Teachers and Tutors can assign their students problem sets with due dates. You can let Piqosity automatically choose the questions according to a student's strengths and weaknesses or manually select each question.
(Note that you do not have to assign students problem sets in order for them to use Piqosity. By default, any registered student can start practicing on their own without specific assignments from a tutor or teacher.)
