To see the assignment group for an assignment, you have to edit the assignment. Currently, when viewing an assignment, it only displays Points and whether something is submitted or not.
Marco, we've placed this idea into Moderating status temporarily to ask for clarification. Canvas doesn't have or use assignment categories; the Canvas gradebook is based on Assignment Groups, and an instructor navigating to the Assignments page will be able to see which group an assignment is in without having to go into edit mode.
What would need to be changed in Canvas itself?
Take a look at the screenshot below, and if you're using categories in the gradebook, you won't be able to see the category when you go to the assignments tab and view the assignment unless you edit it.
Thanks for the clarification, Marco: so the intent of the request is to be able to view the Assignment Group in which the assignment has been placed not only from the Assignments list but also on the page for the assignment itself. We've opened the idea for voting after editing the title and description to reflect the Assignment Group terminology Canvas uses.
