Assignment types in Moodle
There are 2 types of assignment:
- File upload
A student can upload file(s), such as Word document, spreadsheet or anything digital. After learners upload their files in this arrangement, the instructor will be able to open the submission and then use the Moodle interface to assign a grade and offer comments as feedback.
- Online Text
This assignment type asks users to compose and edit text, using the normal editing tools. The online text assignment can be set up to allow learners to compose, revise and edit over time or such that the learner only has one opportunity to enter his or her response.
