Assignments

In addition to learning content, your instructor may also include Assignments in your course. There are four possible types of assignments that your instructor may give you:

Basic assignments with no submission required (such as "Read Chapter 2 in your text"). These assignments will only have instructions and possibly a due date.
Graded assignments with no online submission. This type of assignment will be for gradeable items, such as presentations, or other types of projects that are not submitted online.
Assignments submitted online. These assignments are submitted online through BrainHoney. More information on these assignments is included below.
Assignments with a template. These assignments may include a worksheet or other type of template that you will complete and then submit online. More information on these assignments is included below.

To open an Assignment

In the Course Viewer for the course for which you want to submit the assignment, click the folder to open the unit, week, or module of the course for the assignment, and click the assignment title. The instructions display on the right screen pane.

Assignment Toolbar

The buttons on the Assignment toolbar at the bottom right of the Assignment window will vary depending upon the type of assignment and are very useful in helping you work through an assignment.

Rubric Button

Click the Rubric button at the bottom of an assignment to display the grading criteria for that assignment.

Note: This option only displays if the instructor designated a rubric for the assignment.

Open Button

If your instructor has designated a template for this assignment, the Open button prompts you to Save or Open the assignment template.

If you instructor has not designated a template for this assignment, the Open button opens the Work window. You may either type (or copy and paste) your assignment directly into the window, or you may click Browse to select an attachment.

Once the assignment has been submitted, the Open button allows you to view either the original template (if there was one) or the assignment that you submitted.

Note: This option only displays if the assignment is to be submitted online.

Save

The Save button allows you to save the work that you have completed to date. Click the Save button to upload a document and save it to the system to be completed later. You may want to use this option if you are working on a public computer, such as a library computer, and need to save the work up to the system.

Please note: The Save option only saves your work on the system. Nothing will be sent to your instructor until you click the Submit button.

Note: This option only displays if the assignment is to be submitted online.

Submit

The Submit button submits your previously saved assignment to your instructor.

Note: This option only displays if the assignment is to be submitted online.

Grade

The Grade box displays the grade once it has been returned by the instructor.

Details

The Details button displays the details of your grade (for example, the score of each rubric criteria, if applicable) once it has been returned by the instructor, as well as any comments returned by the instructor.
