Select 1 - 6 of all available sub-elements. Sub-elements selected can then be configured in the next tab (exception: return box and revision phase).
The assignment, submission and sample solution steps can be configured with a deadline, with the assignment and submission open until that specific date, whereas the sample solution won't be available before the respective date. Instead of using a fixed calendar date, relative dates are available too, resulting in deadlines dependent on participant activities, such as a first course launch.
In the segment "Task type", only available in the group task, is defined which groups or learning areas can access the group task element.
You either upload directly create your task files in the tab "Assignment." In the field "Message for user" you can provide general information for all course participants regarding your tasks. In the field "Type of assignment" you determine if a course participant can choose between all available tasks or if your tasks should be allocated automatically as well as randomly. Select in the field "Type of sampling" if several course participants shall be able to work on the same task or if each course participant shall work on a different task. If a task is selected manually you can further decide in the field "Preview" if course participants shall be allowed to have a look at a task before selecting it.
Determine how participants are allowed to hand in documents and how many in the segment "Submission configuration". Submitting with the embedded text editor allows the creation of HTML documents directly in the course element. If only the option "Submit files created with external editor" is enabled, course participants will have to have their documents ready for upload in an established file format. Enter a number in the field "Max. number of documents" in order to restrict the number of documents uploaded.
In the "Submission confirmation" segment you will find the standard phrase to confirm that course participants have submitted their solutions successfully. This text can be adapted if necessary. The option "Send text additionally as e-mail" means that your text will be sent by e-mail as well.
Here you define how each course participant shall be assessed. By default a tutor can assess tasks by means of "Passed/failed." If you prefer to allocate points instead or in addition just modify your configuration by indicating a minimum and maximum score or by replacing "Passed/failed" automatically with a passing score. Optionally you can provide space for individual comments regarding each course participant. In addition you can provide further information in the fields "Notice for all users" and "Notice for tutors," e.g. some general comment on how to assess course participants.
In order to provide all course participants with a sample solution regarding your tasks just click on "Open sample solution folder" in the tab before uploading appropriate documents to that folder.
In the tab "Access" you can configure your sample solution date-dependently in order to have it revealed e.g. only after that task's deadline.
