Overview

Assignments is a useful tool for delivering, tracking and grading student submissions. Even non-electronic submissions can be tracked using the Assignments tool.

Add An Assignment

To create an Assignment:

Availability Dates

Submission Types

Grading Methods

Extras

Gradebook Association

It is important to note the differences in allowing the Assignments tool to add a column to the Gradebook for you, and choosing an already created Gradebook item.

If you choose "Add Assignment to Gradebook," a column is automatically created for you in the Gradebook. You must grade the Assignment in the Assignments tool. You cannot open the column in the Gradebook and enter grades there.

If you create a column in the Gradebook before you create the Assignment, and associate the Assignment with that column, you can grade in the Assignments tool, and you can open the Gradebook item and enter grades directly into the Gradebook. This is also useful if you have an Assignment that you will be giving to different groups. For example, you have an Assignment for Group 1 and an Assignment for Group 2, but you select the same Gradebook column for the grades. Using this method, you do not need to have two separate Gradebook columns for the two Assignments.

Access

Email Notifications

This option allows you to choose whether or not you want to receive an email notifying you when a student submits. The default is that you do not receive the email.

Grade a Submission

In order to grade student submissions:

Return a Submission to a Student for Editing

Perhaps you would like to give a student another chance to improve upon her submission. You can return that submission to the student with tips on what you would like for her to do, and let her resubmit the Assignment.

Follow the instructions above, but in your comments, give the student instructions for the revisions you would like to see. You might want to tell the student to include the word "revised" in the file name of the revised submission. Then, do not enter a grade, leave the "Allow Resubmission" box checked, set the number of resubmissions allowed using the drop-down menu, and set the "Accept Until" date and time using the drop-down menu. Click Return Assignment to Student.

You will retain the original submission so if the student never resubmits, you may grade the original. If the student does not change the file name of the resubmitted file, the original will be replaced with the new file. If the resubmitted file has a different name (such as adding "revised" to the file name), you will see both the original submission and the second submission.

Download Multiple Submissions for Review

You have the option to download all submissions at once for a particular Assignment. When you choose to download all submissions, you will get a zipped folder that contains a folder for each student, plus a .csv file containing all student IDs and a column for the grade. Inside the folder for each student you will see several files:

x

Submission Attachments - contains any files that were attached by the student to the Assignment. If there were no attachments, this link will not be viable.

Student Name - An HTML file named with the student's name contains any text that was entered into the Content Editor in the Assignment. If no text was entered, this file will be blank. If the Assignment was set as "Attachments Only" for submission type, there will be no Student Name file.
