This article will guide you on how to:
Adding an assignment
1. Click Assessments of the classroom in which you want to add an assignment.
5. Fill in the Maximum score. If a rubric is used, the score is filled up automatically based on the rubric's maximum score.
6. Tick the required Mode of submission. There are three modes that are available to you:
- Allow file submission - To allow learner to upload a file for submission.
- Allow textual submission - To allow learner to type out their answers. You can set a limit on the number of characters or words that will be allowed for the submission.
- Allow audio submission - To allow learner to upload an audio file for submission.
(Note: Tick Lock Google Document after submission to prevent learners from making any changes to the Google document, after submitting it.)
7. Tick Allow audio submission to allow learner(s) to attach audio files to their assignment.
Note: Audio submission works only when file submission is allowed for the learner(s).
8. Optionally, you can also attach a file to the assignment by clicking Choose File button. Click Choose from Google to choose a Google doc from Google Drive.
10. Tag will prove useful when someone searches it in the question bank; he/she would be able to find the question and use it in his/her assignment if required. Search is the primary use for which tags are added.
Note: The Instructors can search the questions of public assignments using tags in the question bank. In case an assignment is private and an instructor tries to search a question using a tag, then nothing will show up in the result.
11. Click Publish button to publish the assignment. Or you could click on Save as a Draft to save it as a draft for the time being and publish it later.
12. If you choose to Publish the assignment, you can tick Notify update to members to notify all classroom members of the published assignment. Notifying is a good way to make users aware of the new assignment that you have added. You can choose to notify either through a notification or through an email.
Setting a deadline for an assignment
Assignments can have a deadline, after which they will no longer be accessible for learners to take. As the name suggest, they would be dead for the learners! Here is how you can set a deadline for an assignment.
2. Click Publish to publish the assignment. Or you could click on Save as a Draft to save it as a draft for the time being and publish it later.
Saving an assignment as draft
Saving an assignment as draft lets you create and save an assignment without making it available to the classroom’s members. So when you decide to publish the drafted assignment(s), you can make the necessary changes and then publish it. Published assignments can be accessed by classroom’s members and they can make the submissions.
1. After you have created an assignment, click Save as Draft.
2. A confirmation message appears to inform you that the assignment has been created. You can see the drafted assignment(s) on the assessments listing page of your classroom.
While adding an assignment you can configure the assignment settings as per your requirements. The assignment settings are Info, Publishing Options, Sharing, Submission, and Scores panes. This article covers these settings.
Note: You can change any of these settings later while editing it.
2. Type out the Quiz Level and Quiz Category as per your requirement. You can also use previously created quiz levels and categories by typing out their name in the respective field.
Note: When you enter a quiz level and category and save the quiz, the quiz level and category will be saved. Anyone with the permission to create an assignment can use them.
3. Tick Competency-based assessment to make the assessment as a competency-based assessment.
Note: A competency-based assessment will show up in the Competency Report for the classrooms it has been shared with.
5. Click Allow late submission to allow the learners to take this assignment even after the deadline has passed. The learner's submission will be marked as late submission.
7. Set the Publish On date and time. This will be the time after which the assignment will be published and made accessible to the learners.
Note: You can only set the current or future date and time for publishing an assignment.
8. Similarly, you can set a deadline for an assignment.
10. Set the Access status of the assignment from the drop down menu.
Private: Means only the members of the classrooms with which this assignment is shared will have access to it.
Public: Means the assignment is accessible in the Assessment bank for other instructors to make a copy of it.
11. Select the classroom(s) you want to share this assignment with. You can choose from My classrooms list. 'My classrooms' refers to the classrooms created by you.
13. Set the maximum submissions a learner can make. If you are feeling generous, you can allow the learners to submit more than once.
14. Tick Enable Turnitin to integrate assignments with Turnitin.
16. Click Consider this Assignment for Scores and the scores obtained in this assignment will be considered for the final scores.
