How do I create assignment folders to collect student work in D2L?
First go to the assignments tool.
Note: when you create an assignment folder and designate a "Score Out Of" for the assignment a Grade item for that assignment will be automatically created. If you do not want the assignment to be associated to a grade item, you must click on "In Gradebook" and select "Not in Grades".
Create Assignment Folders
(optional / recommended) associate your course discussions, quizzes and assignments to grade items. You may enter scores and feedback for an activity associated to grades, at the activity location rather than at the Grades tool. Those scores will then be visible at the associated Grade item.
