Managing Written Assignments for the Distance Course - Managing your Distance Course

Module by: Keith Restine. E-mail the author

Summary: This module covers the use of the Assignment feature in Blackboard, a single location allowing you to grade, comment, and manage student assignments.

In the traditional face-to-face classroom, written papers and projects are turned in to the instructor for grading during class sessions. Most instructors create routines to handle collecting and managing the papers until the grading is complete and the papers are returned to the students.

The Assignment feature in Blackboard is invaluable in managing student assignments and submissions in a similar manner. This feature provides a single location to send assignment directions and information to students while providing students with a single location to upload assignments and comments. This tool automatically creates an item in the gradebook and has features to help instructors manage assignments.

  • Automatically creates gradebook entries for each assignment
  • Allows time-release options
  • Setting availability dates makes the assignments disappear, stopping students from submitting late assignments
  • Sets one gradebook items per assignment, unlike the Digital Dropbox where multiple files appear as multiple entries in the gradebook
  • Instructor can access all student files and comments from the gradebook
  • Grades given to assignments automatically appear in the gradebook
  • Instructors have the ability to download one, some, or all student submissions from the gradebook
  • Submissions can be downloaded to the instructor's desktop, feedback added, and the file uploaded to the student in the assignment tool
