Post a New Assignment (Teacher)

Creating an assignment on Edmodo is easy. Assignment Posts will show up in the Class/Group members' Group or Class Stream and will automatically be added to the members' Planners. The Class/Group members can easily turn in the assignment right in Edmodo.  

To post a new assignment to one or more of your classes or groups, follow these instructions:

  1. Click on the class you want to create an assignment on the left panel.
  2. Select the add button  add_button_2019-08-08.png  located in class information panel of your class' page.
  3. Click Create Assignment from the dropdown menu.
  4. Fill out Assignment Title and Instructions for the assignment. 
  5. Click the File, Link or Library icons to attach any items to the Assignment.
  6. Click Assign to open a popup menu to complete the following details before assigning the assignment:
    • Assign to (type in the names of more groups or individual students to whom you would like to assign the assignment to directly)
    • Due on (set by clicking on the respective date and time boxes)
  7. Check the Lock after due date box to restrict students from turning in the assignment after it is due.
  8. Check the Add to Gradebook box to include the students’ scores in the class/group Progress Book.
  9. Click Schedule for later which will automatically send the post at the chosen time. Make sure the time zone listed in your account settings is the same for all teachers and students. After you select the date and time to schedule the assignment, hit Assign to add it to your scheduled posts queue located below the class composer. 
  10. Click Assign to post immediately. (posts will appear on the Post Stream in the order they were sent)

Note: If you send an Assignment to individual students instead of to a whole class/group, it won't show up automatically in the Progress Book. You will have to navigate to the Assignment results in the Progress Book, enter the assignment if it’s not there already, and manually enter the student’s score. Attaching an image to the assignment may lower the image resolution.
