What is the Assignments tool?
The Assignments tool allows instructors to create, distribute, collect, return, and grade assignments. Each student's submissions is private and can only be seen by the instructor (or TA) and that student.
The Assignments tool adds structure to an Assignment. It provides assignment instructions, student submissions, feedback and grading.
Assignments can assigned to the whole class or to a class group
A group Assignment may be structured so that any member of the group can submit for the entire group and a single grade assigned to each member of the group OR a group Assignment may be structured so each individual in the group must submit.
Assignments may include "Peer Assessment", allowing students to review, critique and grade other student's writing or projects.
