Creating Online Assignments
The "Assignment" activity in LATTE allows students an easy way to upload and submit a file or files for grading. Instructors can also create offline assignments to remind students of assignments outside of LATTE. When an instructor creates any type of assignment, a column to grade the assignment is created in the Gradebook.
How to Create an Assignment
Step 1: From the course homepage, click the "Turn Editing On" button on the upper left-hand side of your course homepage.
Step 2: Click the down arrow next to the Add an Activity... option box in the section of the course outline you want to add the assignment.
Step 3: From the drop-down menu, select the type of assignment you want to give the students:
- Advanced uploading of files. Allows students to upload more than one file per assignment. Also, instructors can use this to submit written feedback to the student by uploading a file themselves.
- Online text. Students write directly within LATTE, or can copy and paste from a document.
- Upload a single file. Allows students to submit a single file.
- Offline activity. Students submit work outside of LATTE, but a a column for grading that activity is created in the course's gradebook.
Step 4: The Assignment settings page will open. Type a name for the item (and a description or summary if desired).
Step 5: Give the assignment a due date and change any other settings to your preferences. Then click Save Changes.
