In this resource, faculty will learn how to create and grade an assignment activity in Moodle. 

1. What is an Assignment Activity?

Moodle activities are building blocks for creating active learning and assessment pieces of your course. Activities generally require active interaction with the students, such as with assignments and quizzes. Often these activities have associated assessments that are tied to grades, and therefore they are usually linked to the Gradebook in Moodle. 

In this resource, you will learn about the Moodle Assignment activity.  You will use this activity to allow students to submit work, access feedback, and view grades all within the Moodle classroom.
