Assignments are where you will find a question or task to answer through a submission.
When you click onto a course you will be able to see all types of lessons configured by the admin (lessons, assignments or discussions) with a visual indicator to help differentiate.
Assignments can be graded by the Admin/ Instructor as:
- fail/try again; you will need to re-submit a new version of the assignment.
They can also leave feedback.It is only visible to you.
Learners are able to change their submission as many times as they would like to, but this will be sent back to the Admin to be regraded each time.
Mandatory and Optional Assignments
Once you click into the assignment, there will be two status’: 'Complete' and 'Incomplete'. You can click the status icon which will lead to a pop-up message that shows the requirement to complete this assignment. After viewing the requirement, you can click 'ok' to close the message.
If the assignment has been set as optional:
You will not see a status button.
You will not see other learner’s submissions until you have submitted at least one attempt yourself. If you have not yet put forward an attempt they will only see the screen to enter a submission.
You can then scroll down to see any comments on your submission, these comments will also be visible to any learners who have access.
You can watch comment threads on submissions that you have access to. You will have a visual identification of the posts you are watching within the app. Learners can turn this on and off for as many threads as they would like to. You will also receive push notifications for new activity on the threads and will see 'unread replies' when in the app. You will receive a prompt in the app to tell them that notifications have been turned on for you to follow the post.
