- There are three common ways…to conduct assessments in Moodle.…We've looked at assessment through quizzes and forums.…Now it's time to look at assignments.…Assignments are like a drop box,…with a link to the grade book.…Students submit files, like essays,…spreadsheets or creative work,…and you give them feedback and a grade.…Let's take a look at how it works.…First, I'll turn editing on using the button…in the top right corner.…Next, I'll scroll to the section where I want…to add the assignment.…
I'll click the Add an activity or resource menu…and I'll select Assignment from the Activities list…and select Add.…On the Adding a new Assignment page,…we'll enter basic information about the assignment…and adjust some settings.…I recommend using the same assignment name…as the students will see in the syllabus.…In my class, essays are Level 3 activities.…Students are asked to write plans…for what they intend to do, and then reflections…about what they did.…So I'll use one of those for this assignment.…
