The assignment module allows teachers to collect work from students, review it and provide feedback including grades. The work a student submits is visible only to the teacher and not to other students.
1. To create an assignment Turn editing on for your course page. After you have created blocks within your course page you will be able to add resources and create assignments.
3. Fill out the options for your specific assignment. The settings categories are: Assignment Settings, Submission Settings, Feedback Settings, Grade, and Common Module Settings. In these settings you can select how many files can be submitted, when the assignment is due, if late submissions are allowed, if you want email notifications about each submitted assignment, and how the grade will display. For example, under the Submission types field, you may decide whether you want students to submit a file (a .pdf or .doc, an audio recording, an image), submit online text (provides a rich text editor where a student may submit a response to a question), or both. You may also place a cap upon how many files each student tries to submit, as well as place a cap on the size of these files.
4. Once the assignment is created it will be featured on the course page under the heading block you made it under. The assignment itself can be edited after it is made.
