CASE
  • every student in the classroom (or a part of it) has access to the assignment
  • only submits the work one person per group
  • the assignment of students to the groups can be done by the teaching team or each student can choose the group with which they want to work
  • the work is graded so that the qualification is replicated to the rest of the group

 

 Only people who are part of a group can deliver. Any person in a group can make a submission and this will automatically be copied to the submissions space of all the members of the group. Therefore, the submission will be unique.

PREVIOUSLY

To create and configure a group submission, you need to previously create the groups that will be able to submit the assignment, as well as a grouping that includes them.

The assignment of students to the groups can be done before or after the creation of the task (see Annex I for more information).

You can create the groups:

 

CREATION AND CONFIGURATION OF THE TASK

  • Within the Group sumbission settings section, select Yes in the Students submit in groups drop-down menu and also select the name of the grouping that includes the target groups in Grouping for students groups.

ANNEX I. ASSIGNMENT OF STUDENTS TO GROUPS

This assignment of students to each group can be done in several ways:

  1. As teachers, assign students to each group. To do so, follow the instructions: How to add students to a group manually.
  2. Each student chooses a group, through a Group registration activity, previously created by the teaching team. To create this type of activities follow the instructions: How to create a group registration activity.

The result of both options will be that you will have the groups with the assigned students. To consult them, access the Configuration > Users > Groups.
