When you create an assignment, you'll add details for the assignment such as the description, file submission types, and point value. If you create an assignment shell, you must edit the assignment to add the assignment details. Assignment settings are persistent to always remember and display the settings created or edited in the previous assignment in the course. Please note that this feature only applies to settings; it does not include assignment due dates.
When creating or editing an assignment, you can assign an assignment to a specific course section. You can also set different due and availability dates for a section within an assignment that is assigned to the rest of the class. Availability date functionality is still available for each assignment.
