Overview

 

This article is designed to help you decide whether the upcoming assignments you need to create should be created in the Class Pages area or using the Create [+] Button. The right type of assignment will need to be created depending on how you would like your students to interact with the assignment or where you would like the assignment to be seen.

Below are some of the reasons an assignment would be created from the Class Pages area.

 

  • The assignment will be downloaded and uploaded by the student using the “Hand In” option for grading. This will allow you to annotate the assignment and return it to the student.
  • The assignment will need to be visible on one of the pages in the Class Pages area for the section.
  • The assignment will be graded using a Rubric created in the My Rubrics area within the Learning potion of the Settings.

If the assignment meets any of the above criterion, then the assignment will need to be created using the following steps from the Unified Classroom Teacher Help.

Below are some of the reasons an assignment would be created using the [+] Global Create button.

 

  • The assignment will be associated with an Assessment created in the Library area
  • The assignment will only need to be in the Scoresheet and not visible by students in the Class Pages area (the assignment will still be visible in the Dashboard)
  • The assignment will only be assigned to specific students

If the assignment meets any of the above criterion, then the assignment will need to be created using the following steps from the Unified Classroom Teacher Help.

Notes

 

It is important to note that once an assignment is created using one of the methods above the assignment cannot be edited to be used in the other fashion. For example, if an assignment was created using the [+] Create button and it is later found that it needs to be displayed in the Class Pages area, the assignment can’t be modified to be included in the Class Pages. A new assignment will need to be created from the Class Page area using the steps above. This will cause a new assignment in the Scoresheet linked to the Class Pages assignment. If there are scores, transfer scores to the new assignment and delete the old assignment.
