Scenarios

  • You would like to give learners the possibility to upload files as assignments and hand them in to you.
  • You would like your learners to do an assignment on which other learners can give feedback.

Template type needed to have a Hand-in assignment

  • Blended learning
    With this template type, learners will not be able to give feedback to each other
  • Social learning
  • Game-based learning

Go to the Templates tab and click Edit. Under the template tab you can create a new activity with + Activity. Then choose Hand-in assignment.


1) Fill in the assignment description

If you already have an information page available in a content part you can select that. Otherwise choose Text editor


2) Add supporting files (optional)

These can be documents to support the learner with the assignment.


3) Continue setting up the assignment

After publishing, not everything is adjustable anymore. Those settings have been marked with a *below.

Participants can see each others files*
Learners can see each others assignments, when handed in.

Discussions are allowed in the hand-in assignment*
Learners can discuss with each other about their hand-in assignments (only available for social learning and game-based learning template types)

Assessment possible*
You can mark the assignment as Passed or Failed (close activity). If You select Failed, the learner will have a retry possibility.

Activity can be reassessed
This option is turned on by default and gives you the option to modify the score that was given. If the activity has been reassessed, the original date of the first time will continue to be shown to the learners.

External assessor allowed*
The learner has the option to invite someone external to assess his hand-in assignment.

Add numeric score to assessment*
Check this option if the assessor should grade the assessment. You can use multiple criteria to calculate the final score, or you can fill in the final score. If you enter a score lower than the threshold, the learner will have the option to hand in a new assignment, unless you closes the assignment.

After checking the option, extra options will appear to set up the rest of the score. The easiest way to set up a threshold is by choosing Percentage. Would you prefer to round to decimals, whole of half numbers? First read the article How do I set the threshold of an assessment relative to the score?

Allow learner to complete assignment after upload*
If you don't want to get involved with assessing the assignment, you can check this option. Once a learner finishes an assignment, the 'Continue button' in the learning journey will change to a 'View details button'.

Note: Hand-in button not visible when testing

If you test the activity and/or template, you can see the assignment itself. However, you cannot see the hand-in button nor hand something in to test it. This part only works when the template is published, and a course is created. A learner can then hand-in the assignment. It looks as follows:
