What’s the difference between an assignment and an assessment?

  • Give your assignment a descriptive title and select the classes/groups the assignment applies to.
  • Choose the subject, you have the option to add a cover image and a detailed description/ instructions for the students. Be very clear in explaining the requirements, expectations, and objectives of the assignment. You can format the text, embed images, add hyperlinks, and more.
