It is possible to create an assignment but not send it to Students immediately. When the assignment is ready, you can send it to Students then. If you keep the assignment in the Assignments tool, Students can view, complete, and submit it from the Inbox tab in Assignments. If you place a link to the assignment from the Course Content tool, Students can view, complete, and submit it from there.
You have the following options for sending assignments:

  • Send an assignment to individual Students who work independently and submit their own assignment. Students receive their own grade.
  • Send an assignment to individual Students but place them into groups and provide different instructions for each group. Students work independently and submit their own assignment. Students receive their own grade.

    Example:

    In a World Religion course, you have an assignment with instructions to write a paper about a particular religion. You give additional instructions on writing about Taoism to one group and you give additional instructions on writing about Buddhism to another group. Students write their own paper according to the instructions for their group.

  • Send an assignment to groups of Students who work collaboratively and submit one assignment per group. Students in the same group receive the same grade.

If you have access to the Teach tab, you can use the Group Manager tool to create groups and place Student into the groups. If you do not have access to the Group Managertool, you can still select the option to send an assignment to groups, but the assignment is sent after Students are placed into groups.

Important:

When you send an assignment, you must also show the assignment so it becomes available to Students. For more information, see Showing or Hiding Items.
