How To Create An Assignment Dropbox

The Assignment activity allows students to submit work to their teacher for grading. The work may be text typed online or uploaded files of any type the teacher?s device can read for example: word processed documents, spreadsheets, images, audio, and/or video clips. Grading may be by simple percentages or custom scales, or more complex rubrics may be used. Students may submit as individuals or in groups.

When reviewing assignment submissions, instructors can leave feedback comments, upload files such as student submissions with comments, or audio feedback. Assignments can be graded using points, a rubric, or grading guide. Grades entered on the Assignment grading page are automatically added to the Moodle gradebook. Assignments can be graded anonymously or with students identity shown.
