  • number
  • percentage
  • Comment only
  • No mark

Once you have added the details of the assignment and uploaded any attachments, click Next.

On the next page, you can decide on the submission deadline.

  • If you select a Due lesson, the assignment will be accessible from the chosen lesson and the due time will be set to the start time of the lesson.
  • If you select a Due date, this specifies the date and time the schoolwork should be handed in. This defaults to the end of the next lesson if there is one.

Next, you'll need to choose how the assignment will be submitted.

  • If you tick the Submit via Arbor box, students will be able to submit their assignment via the student portal (if you have activated this feature). All assignments can also be handed in in person and logged in Arbor.
  • If you do not tick this box, teachers will need to mark the assignment as submitted. Please note that on the lesson overview and in Student Portal it will say 'Waiting for the student to submit' until it is marked by the teacher.

Once you have chosen the details of the assignment, click Save.
