How do I enable group submissions for an assignment?
Go to the Assignment tool.
Select the Assignments tool from the Tools Menu in your site.
Add a new assignment or edit a draft assignment.
Click Add to create a new assignment.
Note: You can only select the group submission option for a new or draft assignment. Once the assignment has been posted for students, you cannot change this setting.
Select Group Submission - One submission per group.
If you select the radio button for Group Submission (One submission per group) it will allow any member of a group to submit an assignment on behalf of the group. By default, the same grade is applied to all group members when the item is graded. However, the instructor can also override the group grade for any individual member of the group.
To use the Group Submission feature you must select Display only to selected groups under the Access heading. Then select only those groups that were created by instructors for this site.
WARNING: For group submission assignments, never select groups whose student membership is synchronized with Banner. Otherwise, such groups cannot have newly enrolled students added to them.
Note: You must have existing groups in your site in order for the group option to appear.
Post your assignment.
Once you have entered all of your assignment settings, scroll down to the bottom and click Post to save your changes and post the assignment.
