Let’s do it together

Group assignments allow students to submit a single assignment that is associated with each group member. In addition, when you grade and give feedback once, Canvas will distribute that feedback for everyone in the group.

Get Started

  1. Create a Canvas Assignment (see No touching, please for instructions on creating an assignment with online submissions) then scroll down and select This is a Group Assignment.
  2. Select an existing group set OR enter a “Group Set Name” [a] (i.e., the name of the group of groups), select Split students into … groups [b] and enter the number of groups for Canvas to automatically assign students into [c], and Save.
  3. Assign a due date then Save the assignment.
