Assignments include Quizzes, graded Discussions, and online submissions (i.e. files, images, text, URLs, etc.). Assignments in Canvas can be used to challenge students' understanding and help assess competency by using a variety of media.

Assignments can be organized into Assignment groups. These Assignment Groups offer some tools for grading including, dropping scores and assignment group weighting.
