Set Up a Group Assignment

You can assign a grade and provide feedback to all of the members of a group at once—and then make any adjustments for individuals that might be necessary. Here's how:

  1. Create an assignment link.
  2. In the Group submissions options area, change the Students submit in groups option to Yes.
  3. If your course has more than one type of group, select the grouping that the groups belong to so that submissions will be allocated to the correct students.
  4. In the Common module settings area, choose Separate groups and select the appropriate Grouping if needed. (Note: You do not need to restrict access to the link to a group or grouping.)
  5. Save changes.

Caution: Once any student has submitted an assignment, you will no longer be able to deactivate the group submission setting or adjust the group designation for the assignment.
