How do I set an Assignment for separate groups and for group submission?

You will learn how to set an Assignment activity for separate groups, for one student to submit the assignment on behalf of the entire group, and for one grade to be given to the entire group. These settings can be useful for group projects.

Follow the steps below after you have already created an Assignment activity, and have already created groups of students.

9. Select Separate groups for Group mode.

No groups is the default setting. This is for individual submissions.

Separate groups allows students to view an activity (an Assignment in this case) as a group.

Visible groups allows students to view an activity as a group, but also to see other groups' work (like in a forum or wiki for example).

10. If you only have one set of groups, leave Grouping at None.

A Grouping is a set of specified groups within a course. For example, if you want to have different groups of students working on different activities, you can use Groupings to specify which groups can participate in an activity.

If there are no Groupings in a course, then the only choice in the drop down menu for Grouping for student groups will be None.

None is selected.

11. Click on Save and return to course.

Save and return to course.

12. The Assignment on the main course page will now show the icon for Separate groups.

The Assignment is now set for separate groups, for one student in each group to make a submission, and for one grade to be given for each group member.
