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

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!
Hi @SowmyaN ,
Thanks for your reply. The problem is not on recoveing a deleted assignment. The issue is that when you copy an assignment you can't make changes to one assignment individually from the others once it's shared.
After doing all that, you might as well just type in a new assignment for all 6 of your classes one at a time, which is what copying the assignment was supposed to save you from doing.
Is there any other way around that? or should the teacher just create a new assignment for every class?
I would echo the same concern. I can't individually curve or adjust a test that is in all of my sections. My sections are very diverse and need to be graded differently. I went through and adjusted each section only to go back and see that each time I adjusted each class it effected every other section.
My current solution choices are 1. Add each assignment for each class separately or 2. Make 6 copies of the same assignemnt and then go back to each one and remove all the other sections from them.

Would you confirm the assignment that is associated with the 6th-grade classes is not showing the 7th-grade class sections? When copying the assignment you should be able to select the sections in which the assignment should be assigned.
To save time, duplicate existing assignments. You can also copy existing assignments to different classes using the Copy Assignments feature.
If you are creating a Unified Classroom assignment, you should be able to select 'Save and Duplicate' in the bottom right of the page to the left of the 'Save and Close' option. When selecting 'Save and Duplicate', the assignment should duplicate to a separate assignment allowing you to choose the sections in which the assignment should be attached.
