To create a new Assignment Folder:

  1. Go to Course Tools > Assignments.
  2. Click New Assignment at the top.
  3. The Assignment folder editing screen. A name, a maximum score, and a due date have been entered.
  4. Enter a Name for the folder. All other fields are optional, but you may also want to configure:
    • Score Out Of: The maximum score for the assignment; required if you will be grading the students’ submissions.
    • In Grades: Begins the process to connect your assignment folder to a Grade Item. Detailed instructions for using this setting can be found in the Connect an Assignment to Grades guide.
    • Due Date: The date by which you expect the students to submit their work.
    • Note that this is not a binding date; students can submit after the Due Date. If you wish to block students from submitting after a certain date, open the Availability Dates & Conditions block on the right side of the screen and enter an End Date, which does block student submissions.
    • Instructions: If the detailed instructions for the assignment aren’t posted in the Content area of your course, you can enter them here.
  5. When you are finished, click Save and Close at the bottom of the screen.
