How do I create assignments on my Blackboard course site?

Assignments can be created by going into the content area, hovering mouse over Assessments, and clicking Assignment.

  3. Select Assignment.
  4. On the Create Assignment page, type a Name. Students click this name in the course area to access the assignment.
  5. Optionally, in the Assignment Files section, attach a file using Browse My Computer, Browse Course, or Browse Content Collection.

  7. Optionally, associate a rubric by pointing to Add Rubric to access the drop-down list.
  8. Select the check box to Make the Assignment Available.
