Creating an Assignment

This help content is only applicable to:

  • administrators or faculty managing a course, community or assessment group.

  • those who have access to the Digication Assessment Management System.

In Digication assignments can have multiple steps, an assignment workflow, that allows you to customize what evidence and assessment steps are associated with the assignment. 

Build a Content Workflow

After you have saved the assignment you will be able to design the assignment workflow, or steps, needed to fulfill an assignment.

Note: You can always edit the assignment name and description by clicking the Edit button.

To begin building the workflow, scroll down the page and click the Add Step button.

Assignment Block Types (Steps)
There are several different block types to choose from. To add a block, select the type you want to add from the left hand menu and click the Add This Block button.

Here is an overview of the different block types.

Evidence: This block allows a teacher or student to record evidence of work as it relates to the assignment. This block can contain file uploads, rich text, links to e-Portfolios, or other formats depending on your school's option.

Teacher Rubric:This block allows a teacher to complete summative assessment of each student’s work. The teacher can select and score a rubric and enter comments on the work being assessed.

Self Rubric: This block allows each student to self-evaluate their own work via a rubric. After the block is added, you can select or create a rubric to evaluate the work.

Teacher Reflection:This block allows a teacher to complete formative assessment of each student’s work. The teacher can enter rich text and comments as part of the assessment.

Self Reflection: This block allows a student to complete formative assessment via a self-reflection. Each student will be able to put in rich text in comments as part of the reflective process.

Standards: This block allows a teacher to document whether evidence and assessments contribute to or complete an institutional goal or standard. Multiple standards can be selected and adherence is measured via a rubric.
