Unlike pre assess, where the teacher must decide what layers to pre assess, the the app decides which layers should be practised. The timely practice app tries to ensure that all layers are practised before they are forgotten (to avoid wasting teaching and learning time) - this is the primary purpose of timely practice.
The mp4s (in the link above) shows how to do this.
Creating and setting a timely practice assignment every lesson and assessing it after it is completed after every lesson is ideal, but three times per week is fine.
Creating more timely practice assignments when existing assignments have not been attempted or assessed is not advised - a system to avoid this is advisable. Using a lesson pro forma is one way to ensure this doesn't happen.
The mp4 in the link above shows how to do this.
