Copying an Assignment

Unit Coordinators, Lecturers and Support now have the ability to copy an assignment between units in which they are enrolled

The following attributes are copied:

  • Assignment folder and properties, including instructions, assignment category, and visibility
  • Assignment properties including description, attachments and category
  • Grade item and grade category
  • Availability dates
  • Submission and completion information, including the Optional Grade item and the Unit scheme if used.
  • Rubric(s) associated with the assignment. When copying an assignment that uses a shared rubric, instead of linking a copied assignment to a shared rubric, the rubric is also copied. The copied assignment links to the copied rubric. If an assignment uses a rubric that is archived, the rubric is copied and retains the archived state in the destination unit.

The following attributes are not copied:

  • Instruction quicklinks and attachment resources created with the Attach link to existing activity action.
  • Instruction images added using Insert Image that were saved to unit files.
  • Availability Release conditions and special access settings
  • Submission and completion information including group assignment designation.
  • Evaluation and Feedback information including Turnitin associations, competency, and outcome associations.
  • Content topic associations (for example, if the assignment is linked from content)
