Tasks are one of the activities that are often used. It enables students to send works within a set period of time. The purpose of this part is to show in detail all the possibilities that are available to you thanks to the Assignment tool.


You must enter an assignment name which will be visible to students. You may also optionally include a description of the assignment, an images, etc.


You may indicate the start and end of the period of time in which the system will accept submissions. When you tick the  enable boxes to the right, additional options become active.

Submission types

Students can submit their assignments by typing (or copy-paste) directly into the input form on the platform (the online text option) or as a file that they can upload to the platform (the file submissions option). You may enable both options at the same time, which will allow students to choose whichever method is best for them.

With the online text option, you can specify the word limit for answers. With the file submissions option, you can specify a limit on the number of files which student each student can submit, and a limit on the size of those files. By default, the student can submit one file up to 100 MB.  If you want to make smaller limits available to students, then these values ​​can be changed.

Feedback types

In addition to the basic form of grading on a numerical scale (see Grade below), you can give yourself additional feedback options:

Feedback comments allows you to provide written feedback very quickly through the Pegaz system.

Feedback file allows you to write and edit your comments and send them as a file. This can avoid unexpected malfunctions such as interruption of Internet access or software problems with your web browser (which might cause the loss of typed text). This is usually the best option when you plan to provide extensive feedback.

Submission settings

You can build some additional features into how students submit their work.

Confirm submission: When you select the Require students to click the submit button option, students will be asked to confirm the final submission of a term paper. Students may upload their assignment earlier, but be able to edit it until they are certain that they have created the final version of the answer. After confirmation, students will not be able to edit the assignment again. You have the opportunity to assess the work both in the working phase and after the student has confirmed it as the final version.

If this option is not selected, the students can edit their answers at any time and you see their assignments with the status submitted all the time.

Submission statement: If you set the Require that students accept the submission statement option to yes, each student must confirm the fact that they are the author of their assignments and if they used the work of other authors, then this fact was clearly indicated in the assignment. The student marks such a confirmation when sending the assignment for assessment. If it is not marked, the system will not let them proceed further and mark the need for such confirmation in a red box.

By default, students have the option of submitting their task once. The Attempts reopened setting is initially set to Never. You may, however, provide students with the opportunity to submit the task several times or even unlimited, until they reach the appropriate number of points. There are three options. In addition to Never, you can set it to Manual where you decide on a case-by-case basis or to Automatically until pass so that they may keep trying until they pass a specified threshold.

You can also specify the maximum number of attempts for an assignment under maximum attempts.


You have the option to specify who will be automatically notified about submission events via email. The Notifications settings section is used for this.

You can use the first setting Notify graders about submissions to receive information each time an assignment is sent by a student.

If you do not want to receive notifications because, for example, you know that you will be checking all of them together after the deadline has passed, then set this to No.  However, you may still wish the system to notify you that an assignment has been received from a student after the deadline.  This option is under Notify graders about late submissions.

When entering a grade into the system, you have the option of determining whether students will be notified automatically about the grade. This is found in the Default setting for Notify students option.


You may pre-set many aspects of grading individual assignments. This is done in the Grade section. This section concerns the numerical grades recorded in the Gradebook. Independently, you can enable additional descriptive feedback in the Feedback section.

Type of grade

In the first setting, you can set the Type of grade. You can choose Scale  or Point, or opt out of this particular aspect by selecting the None option. If it is set to None, then you will still be able to provide textual feedback, descriptive assessment, and exchange opinions through comments on a complex assignment. However, no numerical grade will appear in the Gradebook.

  1. The first type of grade is Scale. You select the most suitable scale for the task. The first is a ‘default competence scale’, the second is a traditional Polish code system running from ‘nd’ (insufficient) to bdb (very good), the third is ‘individual and collective ways of learning’, the fourth is the Polish numerical marking scale (2, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5), the fifth is a Boolean yes or no scale, the sixth is marked withdrawn scale (please do NOT use this option), and the seventh is a Boolean incomplete or complete. Please consult with your department secretariat about appropriate grading scales for your course.
  2. The second type of grade is Point. This option allows you to evaluate in the range of the pool of points which you set, while the maximum ceiling to which this scale can be set is 0 to 100 points.

Grading method

Simple direct grading involves simply entering the number of points or grade on a given scale.  However, you can enrich the assessment process and provide extensive feedback related to individual assessments. The other options in the Grading method setting are used for this.

The Marking guide form allows you to specify your own point scale with extensive descriptions for each level of the scale. To use this option, you must select it in the Grading method setting and then define the criteria in the form itself. With marking guide selected, click the Save and display button at the bottom of the page and choose Define new grading form from scratch.

The Rubric option allows you to specify several discrete areas in which the assignment will be graded. For each of these areas, it specifies a pool of points from the total number that can be assigned, as well as descriptions of those areas for your students. To facilitate grading, you can also define some typical, frequently-given feedback which you will be able to attach to the feedback with one click during grading. To use this option, you must select it in the ‘Grading method’ setting and then define a ‘Rubric’ form. With ‘rubric’ selected, click the ‘Save and display’ button at the bottom of the page and choose ‘Define new grading form from scratch’.

Grade category

In this setting, you can specify into which grade category the grade from this assignment should be placed. Grade categories must be defined in advance in the Gradebook settings.

Grade to pass

The system can assess whether the grade given by the teacher is sufficient to pass this task and, for example, possibly allow the student to re-attempt the task (see: submission settings).

Use marking workflow: In a situation where there are several teachers or evaluators in the course, the function of ‘marking workflow’ may be useful. Each evaluator can use it to communicate to other evaluators at what stage the grading of the work is (for example, that the work is not yet graded, or is in the assessment phase, or that the grade has already been decided but not yet published). This allows other teachers to know if they still have time to exchange comments and possibly modify the final grade.

Use marking allocation: The lead teacher has the option of assigning tasks for assessment to specific assistants. In the settings for a given assignment, you can enable marking allocation. After entering the screen for grading a particular student assignment, the teacher may choose the assessors from among those defined as part of the course.
