09-01-05.Note for submitting group assignment as a group or individual

Group assignment is submitted by groups made in the course. If all students in the course belong to any of the groups, there is no problem because each group submits assignment. However, you should be careful if there are students who do not belong to any group in the course.

A student who does not belong to any group is categorized as “No group” as a course participant, but in Group submission, “Default group” will be automatically assigned.

・On the list of course participants, students who do not belong to any group are displayed as “No groups.”

On the list of group submission assignment, students who do not belong to any group are displayed as ”Default group.”

Because all students who do not belong to any group are included in “Default group,” when one of those students submits an assignment, it is submitted not as an individual but as “Default group.”

If you want a student in “Default group” to submit group assignment as an individual, you need to make a one-person-group for each individual student and assign to them.

  • Assign students who will be put in a group to each group.
  • Automatically assign rest of the students to a one-person-group each.
