Creating and Editing Sections for Assignments

Before you begin

  • Before you can utilize the sections feature when creating a new assignment, you'll need to have students assigned to a section within your Gradescope course’s roster.
  • Section-specific assignment settings are only available for student-uploaded assignments.
  • Creating assignments with sections are only available with an Institutional license.

 

Creating an assignment with sections

  1. Access a course that has students assigned to sections in the roster.
  2. Select Assignments from the left navigation menu. 
  3. Select the Create Assignment button from the bottom of the page. 
  4. Choose your assignment type and then select the Next.
  5. Fill in the setting appropriate for your assignment and:
    1. Ensure that it is a student-uploaded assignment (if you require specific dates for sections.)
    2. You will be able to edit individual section’s assignment dates on the next page, so we recommend setting the most commonly required dates on this page first. 
  6. Select Next at the bottom of the page.
  7. You can now edit individual sections to have their own customized dates or remove access to the assignment for specific sections by turning off the student visibility.

  8. If you don’t want to make any changes, or want to make changes later via the Assignment Settings page, select Create Assignment.

Do you have sections which should not receive the assignment at all? Select the student visibility toggle for the applicable sections and turn it off. This can be reversed in the assignment settings at any time if required. 

 

Editing dates for sections

  1. Section dates can be customized individually, or in bulk:
    1. To customize multiple sections at once - select all of the applicable section’s checkboxes and then select the Customize Dates & Student Visibility button. 
    2. To customize an individual section - locate the section from the list and select Edit.
  2. Edit any of the assignment date settings that are applicable to your selected sections.
  3. You can remove any accidentally selected sections by selecting the X, or add any forgotten ones by typing their name in the Selected Section(s) box.
  4. Select Apply.
  5. Once you have made any required edits to your sections’ assignment settings, select Create Assignment.

    Your assignment will now be listed on the Assignments page. Select the down-facing arrow beside the assignment name to reveal the individual sections and their dates.

  4. Select Assignment Settings
  5. Select the Section Management tab and make any required edits. 
    1. It is possible to turn student visibility back on. 
  6. If sections have already been modified with specific dates, they can be edited again if required.
