How Do I Use the Assignments Index Page?

You can view all your course assignments on the Assignments Index page. As an instructor, you can also add assignment groups, create an assignment, and modify assignment settings. You can also rearrange assignments and assignment groups.


Open Assignments


In Course Navigation, click the Assignments link.


View Assignments Index Page


The Assignments Index page is designed with global settings at the top of the page [1], followed by the Assignment groups [2]. Individual assignments are nested within each Assignment group [3].


View Assignment Global Settings


Global settings include searching for assignments [1], adding a new assignment group [2]. To weight the final grade with assignment groups, click the Settings icon [3].


View by Grading Periods


If you have enabled Multiple Grading Periods in your course, you can use the global settings to sort and filter the Assignments page by grading period.


View Assignment Groups


Assignment Groups house the assignments within each group. Groups can be expanded and collapsed by clicking the arrow next to the group name.


Manage Assignment Group Settings


The icons and links to the right of the assignment group control the entire assignment group.

If assignment groups have been weighted, Curve will display the weighted percentage of the total assignment score [1]. Additionally, if rules are assigned to the group, Curve will show the number of rules; hover over the link to view the rules [2]. You can add a new assignment to the group with the Add icon [3], and in the Settings drop-down menu, you can edit, delete, or move the assignment group [4].


Manually Reorder Assignment Group


You can also manually reorder an assignment group by hovering over the drag handle next to the assignment group and dragging the group to the desired location.

You may also move Assignments in this way.

Each assignment displays the assignment name [1], due date (if any) [2], the number of points the assignment is worth [3], and assignment draft state status (published or unpublished) [4]

You can also set varied due dates for an assignment and create due dates according to course section. Varied due dates appear as multiple dates. 

Note: Due dates are not required for an assignment.

Assignments can also include availability dates. Availability dates can make an assignment available for only a specific period of time.
