Creating Group Assignments

Instructors can create a group assignment and release it to a specific group within a course. You can create a single assignment and assign it to all groups, or create several unique assignments and assign them to individual groups. Only the instructor and the members in the group have access to the assignment.

You can create an assignment that is to be completed and submitted by a single group or multiple groups. Each group submits one collaborative assignment and all members receive the same grade.

The overall grade for the assignment can appear to users as a numeric value, letter grade, percentage, text, or as complete/incomplete, depending upon the primary display choice for the column created in the Grade Center for the assignment.

Note:  A grade column is created automatically in the Grade Center for group assignments.
