I assign several of the same types of assignments throughout the semester, including a quiz and a journal assignment over each chapter. As of right now, I have to manually enter all of the information every time I add a new assignment, even though it is pretty much the exact same as all of the other assignments within an assignment group, save for the change in availability and due dates. For example, I would like to be able to set all of the assignments within an assignment group to be worth 100 points, submitted online, due at 11 a.m., with file restrictions to rtf, doc, docx, and pdf, etc.
If possible, I would like to be able to set defaults for assignment groups so that all new assignments within that group have the same overall settings. If that is possible, that would be an amazing time saver and would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your consideration!
