The Assignment tool is fully integrated with the Grade Centre and provides the following features:
- Submission for:
- Single or multiple files
- Larger file sizes
- Group submissions
- Anonymous marking
- Delegated marking (assigning tutors for double marking)
- Inline grading (on-screen view of the submitted assignment with the ability to annotate the paper).
- File attachment for feedback sheets
