Description: Institution Admins may create different types of assignment templates where students are scored directly (with or without Rubric Criteria) in AEFIS that may imported to multiple Courses or Co-curricular Activities. These are commonly used in General Education Assessment Program Assessment processes to reduce the manual work of creating an assignment in every Course included in Educational Experiences. These templates may be applied to Courses, which will then be carried down to each subsequently imported Course Section or user-created Co-Curricular Section. This guide provides instructions on how to import an Assignment Template into a Course.
Note: If you would like the Assignment Template to be applied in the In Progress term, related sections must be in "Faculty Pending" status before starting these steps.
