Select titles in Connect have a writing assignment available that you can find by selecting “Add Assignment” from your section home page and then selecting “writing assignment.” In early 2020, we released an updated version of the writing assignment. Other than titles in world languages courses, all new editions from 2020 and forward have the new writing assignment.
For titles in World Languages or copyright 2020 and earlier with the original Writing Assignment:
Your students can submit essays and supporting documents (such as a PowerPoint, outline, or bibliography) for you to review and provide feedback, allowing for one-to-one interaction with each student.
There are two ways your students can submit their writing assignments: by composing online or by attaching a document. Either way, you can provide overall comments and score the assignment on Connect. But if your students compose the essay online, you’re also able to provide inline comments, which is helpful in giving contextual input and pinpointing the sentence or idea you’re addressing.
After you leave comments for a student, you can submit the student’s score.
