assignment

A posting from a teacher to a student. An assignment can include announcements, reminders, instructions, assigned activities, or requests for work. Assignments consist of a list of recipients (an entire class or one or more students in a class), an assignment name, one or more activities, and instructions. A recipient and assignment name are required; all other information is optional. You can also specify an assignment due date. If you add a due date, any activities or work a student submits after the due date are late. Schoolwork automatically sets due dates to 11:59 p.m. local time for the specified day.

Teachers can post an assignment, or save an assignment as a draft until they are ready to post at a later time.
