Create Assignment Templates from Existing Assignments

You can quickly create a new assignment template from an existing assignment, even if that assignment does not use an assignment template. This helps you quickly reuse the assignment settings for an assignment that works the way you want.

You can also use this procedure to create an assignment template from an assignment that was shared with you.

  1. Edit the assignment that has the settings you want to reuse.
  2. Click Edit Settings.
  3. Click Create New Template from These Settings.
  4. At the prompt, type the Template Name and Template Description.
    The template name and description help you to identify the template you want to use when you are creating an assignment. This information is never shown to your students.
  5. Click Create and Use Template.
The new template is created with a copy of all of the assignment settings. The assignment is updated to use the new assignment template you created.
If you do not want to change the assignment — for example, if you are editing a shared assignment — click Revert to Last Saved.
