Online Assignments and Feedback

Online Assignments and Feedback

The primary methods for remotely assessing student learning on major assignments are via work submitted to a dropbox or completing an online quiz. For lower-stakes assignments, see the Online Discussion Forums page.

Using a Dropbox to Collect Assignments

Creating a dropbox, using the Assignments feature, in D2L allows for students to submit work for a specific assignment to one place. The assignments can then be accessed at any time and graded by the instructor.

A useful feature to pair with an Assignment in D2L is to create a rubric that can be used for feedback and grading. D2L offers a rubric tool that interacts with the course gradebook.
