Save time grading.
Provide feedback that counts.
Quickly and securely create, analyze, and grade coursework, while helping students learn more effectively.
Providing guidance and feedback that helps students grow and learn is one of the most important – and time-consuming – parts of your job. See how Assignments simplifies the process of creating and grading coursework with flexible, collaborative, and easy-to-use tools from Google.
Create and share coursework with ease
Generate new assignments using Docs and Drive, and provide each student with a unique copy. You can organize coursework by class, date, and student, as well as adapt existing work for new courses. Help prepare students for the workforce by using Google tools chosen by millions of businesses – from small companies to those on the Fortune 500 list.
Help students develop authentic work
Generate originality reports using the power of Search. Assignments scans student submissions for matching text on the web, right in your grading interface – no more logging into a different program. And students can run their own reports before submitting to help cite and strengthen their work. Beta users get unlimited free originality reports.
Simplify grading and provide rich feedback – all in one place
Pull up frequently used feedback from your comment bank when engaging students with in-line edits and two-way commenting. You can also apply rubrics to keep grading transparent. Assignments makes it easy and secure to accept Docs and Drive files by automatically adjusting permissions to prevent student editing during grading.
Provide students with tools that support active learning
G Suite for Education provides capabilities that can help students improve their writing skills, work more efficiently and turn in stronger assignments.
Always-visible word count
Spellcheck and grammar suggestions
Complement your learning management system
Once the beta goes live later this semester, you’ll be able to access Assignments right from the tools menu within your G Suite for Education account. Assignments is also available as a Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) add-on, so it’s compatible with any learning management system (LMS).
Get started on your own
Assignments is now part of G Suite for Education, so all you have to do is sign up for the beta to start using it – no setup required. You can open Assignments from your Google app menu or at assignments.google.com. You can:
- Create new coursework in Assignments with the option to share it directly from your Assignments interface or through posting a link in your LMS
- Export grades to Sheets or a comma-separated values (CSV) file for input into your LMS
Request access within your LMS
Assignments is built to LTI standards, making it compatible with any LMS that supports LTI version 1.1 or higher. Talk to your admin about turning on Assignments, so you can:
- Create, grade, and analyze coursework directly from within your LMS
- Let students access Assignments and submit work to your LMS
- Automatically sync grades to your LMS gradebook
“Assignments enables faculty at [our school] to save time on the mundane parts of grading and...spend more time on providing more personalized and relevant feedback to students. It does this all while keeping student and faculty data secure and private.”Benjamin Hommerding, Technology Innovationist, St. Norbert College
