You must create a group and allocate members before creating the assignment. Don’t create group assignments until the group membership is finalised as it can be difficult to make changes.

No Physical Submission
While it is easier to use this approach where there is a physical submission by students (this could be a proxy such as a plan, presentation slides, etc., or a piece of reflection), a grade centre column should be created manually when this is not possible. The grade centre column should be named in the same way as the assessment in the module guide so that students can correctly match the results that appear in their ‘Feedback and Grades’.
