If you are new to using assignments in Blackboard, be sure to review the module Assessing Student Learning (Assignments and Tests) in the Basic Steps of Teaching Online Tutorial.
You can also create a group assignment and release it to one or more groups in your course. Each group submits one collaborative assignment and all members receive the same grade. You can create a single assignment and assign it to all groups, or create several unique assignments and assign them to individual groups. Learn more about creating Blackboard group assignments.
The Assignments tool in Blackboard allows you to create coursework, manage the grades, and give feedback for each student separately. You can create assignments in any content area.
