How to Create an Assignment Learning Activity (Legacy)

Pro Trainer
Learning Center
High Volume & Corporate
We have introduced the new powerful and flexible Assessment Builder. You can find more information about the new Assessments and Certificates here. You can learn how to migrate your existing Assessments here.

Legacy Assignments are open-ended (text) questions that your students have to answer, and the instructor can manually grade.

Create your Assignment

1. Go to your course's Contents tab under the section where you want to create the assignment, and click Add activity.

2. Click on Assignment Legacy under the Assessment Legacy tab.

3. Give a title and click Save or Save & Edit to create your assignment.

4. Click on Settings, to edit the assignment. 

The first time you create an assignment and click on Edit Assignment, you will be prompted to choose your desired settings, including show students' answers, notifying the user before submitting, downloading a file after success, and a passing grade.

Click on Save to save your changes.

Assignment Authoring

1. Click on Edit questions.

2. To add questions to your assignment, hover on the cross sign on the upper side of the screen and choose the type of question you want to add. You can also swap up/down or delete the selected question.

3. Type/paste the question description.

4. Click on Save to save your assignment changes.

Note: You can change the settings of your assignment by clicking on Settings in the top bar of the authoring assignment.

Assignment Grading

To grade a legacy Assignment, you can navigate to Reports Center → Review Center → Select the Legacy Assignment. The Scoring will not be advanced, and you can assign a score from 1 to 100. 

We have released our improved Assessment feature, with various new questions, response tracking, and advanced scoring (points per question/answer). You can learn how to migrate your existing Assessments here.

1. The Assignment Grading window will appear, displaying the user's name, time and date of the assignment's last modification, and the user's reply.

2. By scrolling down the Assignment Grading window, you will be able to add comments and grade the assignment, by adding a score from 1 to 100. Your comments can include an image or even a link with useful resources.

3. This is how the legacy graded assignment will look to your users.

Note: On the Legacy Assignment learning activity, it's not feasible to save the answers to an assignment question if a user moves to a different learning activity or visits another page to continue at a different time. We recommend using our latest assessment builder, which supports this setting.
