Solution Spotlight: Setup the Assignment Tool for Hours Tracking

The steps below are for setting up an assignment for hours tracking. See the Solution Spotlight: Tracking Hours for Internships, Practicum or Projects page for more information about this solution.

Add a Grade Item

  1. Go to Grades > Manage Grades. Select New > Item.
  2. Select Numeric then add a Name “Hours Tracking,” and set the maximum points 1,000, for example.
  3. Click Save and Close.

Create the Assignment Submission Folder

  1. Go to Activities > Assignments, then click New Submission Folder.
  2. Add a Name for the assignment, such as Hours Tracking, then select the type: Individual submission folder
    Individual submission folder
  3. Associate the assignment submission folder to the Grade item: Hours Tracking. Add in the Out of Score to match the grade item – in our example, this will be 1,000.
  4. When setting up the submission folder, we recommend checking “submission options” – set unlimited submissions and all submissions are kept.   ALSO we recommend adding an email address to the notification email field so you are notified when things are submitted (because this folder will have many submissions, it could span a long duration, and submissions may come in fits and spurts)
    submission options: add email address to notification email field
  5. Click Save and Close.
