The Assignment tool can be used for both online or in-class assessments which are either graded or ungraded. The flexibility of the Assignment tool makes it the "go-to" option for many types of assessments.
The two fields that allow the Assignment tool to be flexible are the Display Grade As and the Submission Type.
- Display Grade As field also has an option to set it as a Not Graded assessment, which makes it a good option for setting up a to-do type activity such as a Reading activity.
- Submission Type field has four options: No Submission, Online, On Paper, and External Tool.
There is also an option for setting up Group Assignments and set the grade option to either have all students receive the same grade or individual grades.
- Use clear and detailed instructions in your assessments.
- Use a Due Date so student know when to submit the assessment.
