I am offering students more than 30 optional assignments that can help increase their scores. Students are allowed to opt-in to all the additional work and have it graded out of the total points, or not. I would like to be able to assign the entire 30 assignments to those who opt in.
Right now, I have to go into each of the assignments (30+) and enter each person's name individually (more than 100). Which is insane.
Having the option to assign the entire assignment group to only those students who opt-in would be much easier.
Another option would be to allow me to create a group, a subset of all my students enrolled across multiple sections in a cross-listed course, and then assign the individual assignment to the individuals in that group. However, these are not group assignments, so the current group functionality doesn't help here.
