Protecting Google Doc Cloud Assignments


I embed cloud assignments for students to complete.  Works great, but students are able to make copies of the doc.  I would prefer that they not be able to keep them as they will inevitably share the sheets with other students.  I make small edits each time to know if I'm getting copied work, but protecting the document (so they can only work on the embedded version) would be preferable.  Thanks for any help!

Community Coach, I think the point of the cloud assignment is that it easily makes a copy of the assignment in the student's Google drive so that way they can work on it and then submit it. If it didn't make a copy for the student, then where do you see their assignment being held for them to work on it (individually) before being submitted?

Also, depending on what you have on your assignment sheet, have you considered just turning it into a quiz? I've done that will all of my worksheets and it works great and actually makes it a lot easier to grade.
