Activity – Assignments

Updated Jan 20, 2020

An assignment can be created in connection to both individual and group-based submissions. Assignments are created with a title, description and optionally files. You can provide feedback both in the comment field and within the submitted document.

The assignment submission status, can be viewed in several places, e.g. in the overview and in the tab Status and Follow-up. Changes in status shows which tasks require attention.

Assignments can be used for all non-exam related tasks.
