The assignment tool in Blackboard allows students to submit written assignments directly within Blackboard. This gives instructors (or anyone with grading privileges) the option of assigning grades and providing feedback (e.g., as a message attached to the grade) within Blackboard. Assignments can be added to any content area within a course, and you can create as many of them as you need.
Once your students have submitted their assignments you will be able to view and grade their work through the Grade Center. You may also want to provide a link for your students to the instructions for students on how to submit and verify assignments.
