The assignments extension adds the feature to assign tasks to students based on each topic inside the courses. You can create as many assignments as you want. You can also drag-drop assignments to order them between lessons and quizzes or just put one at the end of each topic.
To use the assignments feature, you have to enable the extension first.
After that reload the page and you will see the assignments menu under Tutor Pro. This menu will not have any content in the beginning. It will start generating data once the students start to submit their assignments. So let’s add an assignment in a course.
Creating a new assignment
Navigate to any course and on the builder section, you will see a button named “Create Assignments”.
After clicking on the Create Assignment button, a pop up will appear to input the necessary information.
Attachments: If you want to provide sample questions, research paper or any kind of drawing as instructions, you can upload a file in this section.
Time Duration: This applies right after the student views the assignment section. You can set any number starting from zero. Here Zero means no time limit. After the time limit is over, the student will not be able to upload any files on the assignment section and submit the assignment.
Mark: The total mark has to be mentioned here. You can set any number larger than zero.
Passing Mark: The minimum mark for the assignment considered as pass. you can set any number larger than zero and smaller than or equal the total mark.
Allow to Upload Files: If you want to allow the students to upload files, then you can set any number larger than zero. If you do not want the students to upload any files and just write the text on the submission page, then you can set it to zero.
Upload File Size Limit: You can specify a number larger than zero here. This field calculates and restricts the file upload size in megabytes.
