Creating a Team Assignment
To create a team assignment, simply select “Yes” under the “Is this a team assignment?” section when creating a gradeable.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This option may only be specified when first creating a new gradeable. You may not edit an existing gradeable to switch it from individual to team or from team to individual.
Selecting “Yes” will open a new option for maximum team size, which refers to the maximum number of members that can join a team (including the student who creates it). Note that instructors can manage teams and override the maximum team size.
Team Lock Date
Team gradeables have an additional options under the “Dates” tab to set the team lock date, which will be the last date students can create new teams or invite new members to existing teams.
Instructors also have the option of making teams for the students.
Once you’ve made the team assignment, click on the “Preview Grading” button for that assignment. You have 2 options:
Prepare a common-separated values file (.csv) with 6 columns: First Name, Last Name, User ID, Team ID, Team Registration Section, and Team Rotating Section. The first row of the csv is assumed to be column headings and is ignored.
Import Teams Membersbutton in the upper right and upload the .csv file. Note: This option is only available if there are no teams for this gradeable.
Press the pencil icon in the Edit Teams column for a student you’d like to put on a team to bring up the interface for creating a team
Once at least one team has been formed, you will have the option to
Export Teams Members to download a csv with the current teams,
which can then be imported into another team assignment.
