Moodle 3: Activities & Resources: Add an Assignment

This grade item will appear as a column in the GradeBook spreadsheet. Assignment Grade items are different from Manual Grade items which are typed directly into the spreadsheet. The grades for Assignments are entered by the instructor on a when they create the Activity.
