How to Create and Grade Assignments

Last updated: April 19, 2022.


To create an assignment, start a class and go to Teaching Tools. Once selected, the sidebar will appear. Select Assignment and then select Create New. The instructor can also import an assignment here as well. Read more about importing in our importing guide. 


The instructor will be prompted to enter an assignment name, a description, and a due date. One feature to highlight is the ability to record a video by selecting the camera icon within the description toolbar. The instructor will be able to record themselves describing the assignment for the learners to reference. The maximum Grade defaults to 100 points but is adjustable.

The instructor can also select the submission type: Online text or file submissions.

Select Save when complete.


Once the assignment is saved, the instructor can launch it to the class which will push open a new tab for all learners and instructors. Only instructors will be able to close it out for the rest of the class. Select Launch.


The instructor can grade on the assignment page that is launched or within the assignment window by selecting Grade.


The instructor will see the learner’s response or if a learner does not have a response, it will say No Submission as displayed below. The instructor can submit a grade within the grade box. Once ready, select Save.


Once the instructor selects OK, it will take the instructor back to the assignment window.


The instructor will see the status has changed to Submitted / Graded. The learner will see their grade when they select learner tools -> Grades. 


The instructor can go back and edit the assignment at any time. The instructor will need to reset launch status if they edit the assignment.


The instructor can delete the assignment. They will be prompted with a message asking if they are sure they want to delete the activity and then can select delete or cancel.


When the instructor selects launch, learners will see the activity in a tab. They are able to toggle from the classroom tab to the activity. When the activity is launched, it will jump as the primary tab for all.
