I have been working with a faculty member on creating a group assignment in Canvas. We’ve manually created the groups and have set the assignment up as a group assignment. In our experimentation, it seems the student only sees
that the assignment is a group activity when the go to submit the it. We also went to the group space and it does not seem like the assignment is carried over into that environment.
We are new to Canvas and this functionality so I am not quite sure if the behavior we are seeing is normal or if we are setting something up incorrectly. This is not ideal. If you suggestions for us to optimize the use of the functionality or
suggestions to manage groups assignments in another fashion that is more transparent to students it would be greatly appreciated.
