Student: Assignments in Moodle ISU Moodle ISU


Introduction

The Moodle ISU assignment tool can be used for a variety of reasons.  Generally you will be required to submit something (a file or text) to the instructor for assessment.  This handout will familiarize you with how to submit an assignment in Moodle ISU, how to verify your submission and how to view feedback once your assignment has been graded.  

This guide will help you to understand:

Assignment Type

When an instructor creates an assignment in Moodle ISU, they can determine if the assignment will be submitted online via a file, submitted by entering text directly into Moodle, submitted in class, or a combination of any of these options.  If you have questions about the assignment it is always a good idea to contact your instructor.  This guide will help you to understand how to use each type of assignment.
