4. Choose to upload either local files (.doc, .docx) or Google files directly from your Google Drive. In this example, we will upload local files.

5. Choose the files from your device and click 'Open'. You will see the file names in the left list. When you're ready, click 'Match files to students'.

Tip! Need to import from both your device and Google Drive? Click 'Upload Google files' to select from your Google Drive.

6. For this step you will match each student to their writing. The left window will show the filename and a preview of the writing. The right window shows the list of your students.

  • Click 'Attach file' by a student's name to match the visible writing to that student's account.

  • Click 'Remove file' to unlink the writing.

  • Each student can only be associated with a single file.

  • If you've chosen to upload Google Docs, students with Google accounts may be automatically associated with those files.

7. Click 'Create Assignment' once you have matched all work to students. Complete the assignment creation wizard. In these 5 steps, you can add readings, edit your prompt, choose a rubric, get prompt feedback, and adjust your assignment title.
