What is Assignments?

Available to: Teachers, Students (recipient view) and Frog Admin.

The Assignments application allows you to review, allocate, modify and mark all assignments that you have set for your students.
Assignments can be issued in the following ways:

  1. Sites – By creating a site and then assigning that site to students. Sites offer the most comprehensive way of issuing assignments and should be used for larger pieces of homework. There is no limit to the number of widgets and activities that can be added. The site can be referenced again in the future and be used by other teachers in the school.
  2. FrogDrive – By selecting an individual resource (file) and issuing an assignment within FrogDrive. This method offers a quick and easy way to issue assignments. Additional resources can be added in the same assignment, however, only one File drop or Text activity can be used. Only a limited set of instructions can be given. Use this for basic assignments only.
  3. Assignment Application – By selecting New Assignment from within the Assignments application. Like creating assignments from the FrogDrive, this offers a quick and easy way to issue assignments. Resources (files) can be added and only one File drop or Text activity can be used. Only a limited set of instructions can be given. Use this for Basic assignments only.

Assignments can be issued to either individual students or groups.

The Assignments application also allows teachers to send messages to those that have been assigned work. Teachers are able to message students either individually or by group. When a student submits an assignment, it is returned for marking and comment into the Assignments area. You will receive a notification via the Notifications panel whenever an assignment is submitted or a message received.

Students cannot issue assignments. They are able to view, complete and submit assignments. When an assignment is issued the student receives a notification via the Notifications panel. Clicking on the notification opens the assignment. When marks are released the student will be notified again.

Introducing the Activity Widgets

Any Site created within the VLE can be assigned to students as a task for them to complete. This may be as simple as asking the student to read the content (such as a revision site) or uploading files for marking. To enable students to submit work back to their teacher for marking there are four Activity Widgets available in the Content Panel. These are:
itaw_image001 Text Activity Widget. This allows the teacher to enter the instructions for the task into the widget. Once assigned the students can then type in their response and submit it back to the teacher for marking.
itaw_image002 File Drop Widget. This allows students to upload files to the teacher for marking. It can be configured so that only the person uploading the files sees them. This can be useful when files have been uploaded by the whole group. It can also be set to allow users to delete their own files once uploaded.
itaw_image003 SCORM Widget. This allows SCORM (Sharable Content Object Reference Model) content to be displayed within a site. SCORM packages are interactive modules that are assigned to students for completion. The SCORM Widget contains a search function so that you can find and use free SCORM content supplied by the MoE.
itaw_image004 Quiz Widget. Displays a Quiz for the student to complete. Results can be reset after use to allow a quiz to be re-used.
Activity Widgets can be used in conjunction with non-activity widgets. Try including text, media (images, videos or audio files) forums, and message walls to make your assignments more engaging.
