About Assignments

Assignments allow you to create coursework and manage the grades and feedback for each student separately. In an assignment, you can include a description, point value, and file attachments. You can create assignments in several courses areas, such as in a content area or folder. Students access the assignment, type a submission, attach files, and submit it. You can respond to each student separately with comments and attached files.
