Last modified: 2018-03-07 17:32:01 +0100

With a hand-in assignment learners can upload files that can be assessed by an instructor or external assessor. The hand-in assignment can only be used in a blended, social or game-based learning template. Optionally, assignments that are handed in can be seen by fellow learners and discussions can be held. This has to be configured in the settings of the activity.

Where can I create a hand-in assignment?

When editing a template, you can create a new activity under the tab Template by clicking on +Activity. As activity type you select the Hand-in assignment.

How do I configure the Hand-in assignment?


Please note that the standard settings cannot be changed when the course template is published.

Participants can see each others files: Learners can see each others assignments, when handed in.

Discussions are allowed in the hand-in assignment: Learners can discuss with each other about their hand-in assignments (only available for social learning and game-based learning)

Assessment possible: Instructors can mark the assignment als Passed or Failed (close activity). If the instructor selects Failed, the learner will have a retry possibility.

External assessor allowed: The learner has the option to invite someone external to assess his hand-in assignment.

Add numeric score to assessment: You can let the system calculate the final grade based on the assessment criteria or by letting the instructor fill in a grade manually. If the instructor grades the assignment below the threshold, the learner will have the option to do a retake.

Allow learner to complete assignment after upload: The learner can complete the activity himself, once he has uploaded the files.
