Wikis as Assignments

Wikis as Assignments

(1)

It would be helpful to have a wiki Assignment type in Canvas that would make it possible to evaluate and grade students' individual contributions. It appears that neither the Pages nor Collaborations tools can be set up as Assignments, and both have limitations that don't precisely replicate what a wiki does.

As a writing teacher, I assign free writing tasks (or journaling tasks, or diary tasks) to my students. It would be great if Canvas could have a Journaling assignment type like Blackboard does. So that each week, the students can make daily entries, and then I can see the entries for each week and assign weekly grades. I can do this right now by creating groups on Canvas with just one student in the discussion group, but it is a bit too time-consuming to create such an assignment.
