Can a Page or File be an Assignment Type?

This seems so simple and maybe I'm missing something, but why can't I set Assignment type to "Page" or "File" when adding an assignment?  I know that I can edit a new assignment's description to essentially create html content, but why can't I just select a page that already exists?  Its tedious to have to go into Pages and have to cut and copy the content there into an assignment.  Plus if I am linking to that information (page) elsewhere, I have to make sure to update it in two places!


The only options that present themselves when adding an assignment are (see screenshot):




External Tool

Not Graded


I would like the assignment to open a page that I've already written or for that matter a PDF file that includes explanatory information, links and more.
