You can edit any assignment in Writable to better suit your students’ needs, such as assignment instructions, prompts, and rubrics. In addition to editing, portions of the assignment can be completely replaced.

1. First, find an existing assignment in 'Explore' that you want to use with students and make sure you’ve copied it to 'My Assignments'. For directions on finding and copying assignments, please see, How do I browse assignments?

2. Click 'My Assignments' and find the assignment you’d like to edit. Narrow your search by selecting the class from the drop-down menu and select 'Inactive Assignments'.

Note: It's best to edit 'Inactive Assignments'. To help avoid invalidating work in 'Active Assignments', we've disabled some editing features. If assignment edits are necessary, please keep in mind how your changes may impact existing content.

3. Click on the assignment you would like to edit.

4. Then click the 'Edit' button.

5. Now, you’ll be able to edit the assignment or rubric details by clicking on the pencils, buttons, plus sign, up and down arrow symbols, and x.

Special Note: You can use the up and down arrows on each rubric item to reposition it in the rubric or click 'x' to delete them. Please see How do I edit rubrics? or How do I create my own rubric? for more detailed information on editing rubrics. The plus sign allows you to add a section.

6. Next, click on the 'Prompt Text WIll Appear Here in Student View' button to edit the prompt or add a video. Click 'Done' once your changes are complete. (For further directions on editing, click here.)

7. Finally, click 'Assignment Settings' to expand the sections. Here, you can click the drop-down menu after 'Students must complete' to set how many prompts students must respond to in order to complete an assignment.

The drop-down after 'Score Using' determines whether the rubric items should be scored as percentages or on a scale of 1-4.
