Adding your assignment, discussion, or quiz to a module
If you are using the modules in your course, you should take one additional step to add the assignment/discussion/quiz to the module after creating it. The steps below demonstrate how to do this for an assignment, but the process is the same for a quiz or discussion.
First, navigate to the module that you wish to add the assignment to, click the “+” button in the grey module title bar, select “Assignment” from the menu, and then select the assignment from the list and click “Add item”. This will add the assignment to that module. Below are screenshots to demonstrate this process:
Discussions and quizzes will follow the same steps above, but you would choose “discussions” from the dropdown menu to add a discussion you’ve created and “quizzes” from the dropdown menu to add a quiz you’ve created.
