Moodle Help

This guide is designed to assist with Moodle 4.1 questions.

Add Assignment

Adding Assignments

Assignments  allow students to submit files, text, or video/audio recordings within Moodle. Students will see due dates associated with each assignment, and grading/feedback can be completed within Moodle. The assigned due dates will appear in the calendar to help students track deadlines. To add an assignment, do the following: 

  1. In the top right corner of your course, toggle on editing.
  2. Click add an activity or resource, and choose assignment. Be sure to add an assignment name.
  3. You can add a description, additional files, dates the assignment is available and/or due, and submission types, etc.
  4. Select all of the options for your assignment, such as availability. Availability options include the following: 
    • Allow Submissions From: This stops students from submitting before the shown date but it doesn't hide the assignment and any included instructions or materials.
    • Due Date: Submissions are still allowed after this date but will be marked as late. Disable it by unticking the checkbox. Assignments without a due date will appear on the dashboard with 'No Due Date' displayed.
    • Cut-Off Date: After this date, the submit button will be hidden, and students will not be able to submit.
  5. Finally, click save and display.
