Canvas - Creating Assignments

Canvas course instructors can create assignments to track and facilitate graded activities in their course. Each assignment in a Canvas course will appear as column in the course gradebook. Assignments support multiple submission types, including online submissions, on paper submissions, external tool submissions, and no submission. Graded quizzes and graded discussions are also considered assignments and are listed in the assignments index page. Assignments can be organized into assignment groups, which can be weighted to calculate final course grades.
