I see how I can assign articles to students, but I'd rather they assign articles to themselves. Some of my students appear to have done this already, but I'm not sure what their interface looks like for this function so I don't know how to instruct others.

For students, there is a "My Articles" section of the overview where they can assign themselves an article to write or review. (1st screenshot below)

Students can also assign themselves articles from their own entry in the Students list. (2nd screenshot below)

After selecting to assign yourself an article, enter the name of the article you want to review. Make sure that you have the article title written down correctly (no misspellings or wrong capitalizations, the title you have is the exact way the article is titled on Wikipedia), as this can cause you to pick the wrong article - or to assume that there is no available article. For example, I want to edit the article about the 2007 film The Interview, however if I only write "The Interview" I will instead assign myself the Seth Rogen movie. This can be fixed, but it's better to be cautious.
