The most commonly used activities, Assignment Dropboxes allow students to submit assignments online. This is convenient for Instructors, as it eliminates the possibility of losing a student’s paper and as it enables students to submit their assignments immediately. It also connects to gradebook so students can see their grades once they are corrected.
Then click "Add" at the bottom of the window.
If your assignment is graded on a Pass/Fail basis, choose 'Scale' for the 'Type', then use the 'Fail/Pass' scale.
If you want to edit the maximum grade later, you must do it from the assignment, not 'Gradebook settings'.
You can change the grade category later in 'Gradebook settings'.
You may set the parameters for your assignment dropbox using the following options. You can set the due date and cut off date, submission type, add the max grade and assign it to a category in your gradebook, etc.
Once options are selected click Save and return to course or display to preview your drop box.
You must select a time from the 24 hour clock, it is often convenient to make an assignment due at 23:55, or 11:55PM, on the date that it is due to avoid due date mix ups for students.
