The assignment module allows teachers to collect work from students, review it and provide feedback including grades. The work students submit is visible only to the teacher and not to the other students unless a group assignment is selected. Using Moodle for assignments is a great way to make assigning, collecting, and grading student work more efficient while also cutting down on paper use.

The assignment activity module enables a teacher to communicate tasks, collect work and provide grades and feedback.
Students can submit any digital content files, such as word-processed documents, spreadsheets, slides, images, etc. Alternatively, or in addition, the assignment may require students to type text directly into the text editor. An assignment can also be used to remind students of ‘real-world’ assignments they need to complete offline, such as art work or presentations, and thus not require any digital content. Students can submit work individually or as a member of a group.
Assignments can also be used to collect ungraded files or documents like contracts, agreement or consent forms, etc (just set the Grade Type to None in the Assignment settings).
When reviewing assignments, teachers can leave feedback comments and upload files, such as marked-up student submissions, documents with comments or spoken audio feedback. Assignments can be graded using a numerical or custom scale or an advanced grading method such as a rubric. Assignment grades are recorded in the gradebook.
