Create Assignments


In Digication an assignment can have multiple steps that comprise an assignment workflow, allowing you to customize what evidence and assessment steps are associated with the assignment. For example, a simple assignment might have only two steps—a student submitting a section of their portfolio as an
“Evidence” step and the instructor providing feedback through a “Teacher Reflection” step. More complex assignments might include such steps as students using a self-evaluation rubric or revising a submission and re-submitting it. The order of these steps is completely flexible, but an evidence step should always come first. The instructions below document the process of creating assignments.
