Chapter 10

Creating Assignments

In This Chapter

  • Using the Assignment module
  • Constructing online and offline assignments
  • Managing submissions

The Moodle Assignment module provides you with means to grade and give feedback on learners' work created online or created offline and then uploaded. The work is not graded automatically, like the Quiz module, though once assigned, you can input the grades and feedback in Moodle, and your learners can view the grades and feedback in their grade books. The Assignment activity module has two broad categories:

  • Offline: Learners can complete work on their computers and then upload the files from their hard drives, or you can present the material offline, in a traditional classroom setting.
  • Online: Learners can complete the assignment requirements online.

You can think of this activity module as a catch-all for anything that you want to set and record in the course Moodle grade book that cannot automatically be marked by the Moodle Quiz module.
