The zip file contains a main folder (named the same as the assignment) that has a subfolder for each student. Each subfolder contains the content submitted by the student for the assignment.

The folder also contains a file named "grades.csv". This comma delimitated file can be opened in a spreadsheet program such as Excel to record grades. This file can be used as a basis for the Feedback Tool (See How do I post student feedback?) or part of the bulk upload feature of the Assignments tool (See How do I bulk upload graded Assignments and feedback?)
