Copying an Assignment

I need to copy many assignments from one class to another to avoid having to add an assignment four times. How do I duplicate or copy an assignment from one class to another? I have found several discussions on how to copy an assessment from one class/page to another but nothing on assignments. Almost every teacher that I know will use the same assignments across multiple classes so there has to be a way to do this.

 

I have looked everywhere that I know to look and even asked our experts but no one knows how to copy an assignment from one class to another.

Re: Copying an Assignment

Hi @badgettd,

 

You can find the instructions on how to copy assignments from one class to another in the following Online help guide:

 

https://docs.powerschool.com/UCHT/grading/assignments-activities/copy-assignments

 

This should get you going on copying the assignments without having to manually duplicate them. Please let me know if you have any other questions or need clarification on the steps.

Re: Copying an Assignment

If you create an assignment for one class and duplicate it to another class, whatever changes you make to the assignment in either of the classes is made to the other class as well.  
 
IOW, it doesn't just make a copy that is free and independent for the class you copy it to, they are "tied" to each other. 
 
Say you copy one assignment in period 1 to 5 other classes, periods, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. 
 
Then 6th period doesn't have time to do the assignment so you delete it from period 6.  
 
YOU NOW HAVE JUST DELETED IT FROM ALL THE OTHER PERIODS. 
 
Other versions last year, as well as PowerGrade, if you copied an assignment to other classes, it made a free and independent copy that you could make changes to, such as due date or points. 
 
This new copying protocol is not good.  I created an assignment and copied it to the wrong class.  When I went to that class and deleted it, it deleted it from ALL THE OTHER CLASSES that had a copy of it as well.  ALL THOSE SCORES FOR THE LEGIT CLASS WERE GONE!
 
Any fix for this?

Hi @RocioG1,

 

Thank you for reaching out for assistance with the PowerSchool Community!

 

Currently, there is not a feature that will recover a deleted assignment. In the future, if an assignment has been assigned to multiple classes that no longer needed then you can always remove an assignment from a class. To remove an assignment from a class, we need to select classes from dropdown from the assignment edit and uncheck the class.

 

Please feel free to reach us if you have any questions. We are happy to help!
