Creating a Simple or Basic Assignment
This video shows you how to create a simple/basic assignment from scratch, link to the gradebook and rearrange the assignment into the proper category.
Additional Features and Functions of assignments area
This video takes a pre-created assignment and enhances it with other features and functions and also shows you two ways to add it to a pre-created grade item (the fast way and the long way).
From Submission to Grading: From Student and Instructor Views
This video has a pre-created assignment and it shows you how a student uploads their submission, how the instructor grades and provides feedback and then how the student sees their grade and feedback.
Group Assignments: How to Create a Group and Attach to an Assignment
This video shares two ways to make a group assignment. 1. Create a group first and then create an assignment and select the group. 2. Create a group AND at the same time create an assignment to go with that group.
Pass Fail Assignments: how to Create Grade Items and Assignments
This video shows you a bit more than just pass-fail assignments as it shows you how to create an associated grade item if you wish that assignment to be part of the final grade – as well as an assignment that is not attached to the final grade. Handout with summary info: PDF Version
Note: Not shown in video but you can also choose to view the weight a pass/fail item has out of the final grade in addition to the Pass/Fail word. I chose not to – by overriding the student and manage views with JUST the pass /fail words but you can check off weight if you wish too.
