Creating an Assignment which utilizes the Google Drive Assignments App
The Google Drive Assignments App enables instructors to assign Google Docs, Spreadsheets, Slideshows, and Drawings from directly within the Schoology platform. Once assigned, students can make their own copies of the content to work on and submit, and the instructor can then provide feedback and grade the assignment, all without leaving Schoology.
Step 1 - From the Courses menu at the top of the screen, select the course in which you're adding the assignment.
Step 2 - Click the Add Materials button at the top of your Course Materials page. You can also access the Add Materials button from within a folder.
Step 3 - Click Add Assignment.
Step 4 - Name your assignment and then click the "Google Drive Assignments" button.
Step 5 - Click "Connect", and sign into your Riverdale Google Account. You will only be prompted to do this once.
Step 6 - Search for, select, and Attach, the Google Doc, Spreadsheet, Slideshow, or Drawing.
Step 7 - The document will now appear in the "Assign from" section. Click "Create" to finish creating the assignment.
If you or your students ever have any issues with the Google Drive Assignments App in Schoology, this will resolve the issue (in most cases):
- Click the 3 dots in the top-right corner of Chrome and select Settings
- On the left side of the screen, click Advanced
- In the menu that appears below Advanced, select Reset Settings
- In the middle of the screen, click Restore settings to their original defaults
- Click Reset settings
- Note! This will disable extensions, but will not affect bookmarks or passwords. You can go into extensions and enable them one-by-one.
Viewing, Commenting, and Grading, Student Submissions
Now that it's been created, your assignment will look like this...
You can view, comment on, and grade all submissions through the "Submissions" tab. If you would like to view the Google Doc in Drive, it can be found there as well. Students and Teacher's may prefer to view the Document in Drive, instead of embedded in Schoology. This will allow for a larger, less cramped, work space.
If you've created a rubric ahead of time, you can apply the rubric while grading the assignment.
