Teachers are wanting to not mark an assignment but still give students ability to submit evidence of work.
Hi Kim Maksimovic Welcome to the Canvas Community and thank you for your question. If I am understanding your need, that is actually quite easy to do in Canvas. Point your teachers to this lesson: How do I exclude an assignment from the course's final grades? It's a great feature, as it behaves exactly like any other Assignment, right down to the ability to do file submissions, except it will not count.
I hope this helps, Kim!
Thanks for your response Ken.
I was more so looking for the option to create an assignment that allows for file submission but not require feedback from the teacher ie. no marking required, hence choosing Not Marked.
We currently use Complete/Incomplete but that still requires the instructor to input feedback. We purely want it to be an assignment drop box for student samples of work.
Ah, okay. About the only thing I can think of off-hand is perhaps having students use ePortfolios. (Details here: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10701#jive_content_id_ePortfolios ) They would have to copy the ePortfolio address and give it to their instructors if the instructors wanted to see their work, though. Perhaps some other folks in the Community will have additional ideas on this topic. The good news is that ePortfolios are available to everyone. On the other hand, it's another (slightly different) interface to learn.
