  1. Open the relevant course.
  2. Go to the Assignments page, and select Create Assignment in the bottom right. 
  3. Select the Problem / Homework Set option, and select Next.
  4. For the Assignment Settings:
    For more information on each setting, check out our Assignment Settings Overview article.
    1. Enter in an Assignment Name.
  5. For Who will upload submissions?, Student will be selected by default.
  6. For Template Visibility, select Allow students to view and download template.
  7. Upload a blank PDF of the assignment to Gradescope and use it to create an outline that gives submission and grading parameters.

    If your assignment is simply a list of textbook problems, you can upload a PDF with questions listed or just a blank PDF.

  8. Have students complete the assignment and upload their completed assignments as a PDF or images to Gradescope.
