Dropbox: Creating Folders

  1. On the navbar, click Evaluation and select Dropbox.

  2. On the Dropbox Submission Folders page, click New Folder.

  3. Enter a name for the assignment folder.

  4. Select a Folder Type. An individual submission folder is selected when you would like users to submit their own files to be assessed individually. A group submission folder enables you to have one submission per group, but you must associate the folder with a Group Category. Any group member can submit and view files for a group dropbox submission folder.

  5. Do any of the following options to meet your needs:

    • To associate the Dropbox folder with a category, select a Category or click New Category.

    • To associate the Dropbox folder with a grade item in your grade book, select a Grade Item, or click New Grade Item. Note that only numeric grade items can be associated with dropbox folders.

    • To assign a score, enter a value in the Out Of field. If there's also an associated Grade Item, maintain consistency by matching the value of the Out Of field to the grade item's Max. Points value.

    • To change the display settings for the folder's Grade Item, click the Learner View Preview menu, then Edit Display Settings.

    • To associate a rubric to the folder, click Add Rubric, or Create Rubric in New Window.

    • To provide instructions to users, in the Instructions rich text field, enter your instructions.

    • To allow learners to add the folder to their ePortfolio as an artifact, select Allow users to add this folder to their ePortfolio.

    • To add attachments, in the Attached Files area, click any of the buttons.

    • To change submission options, expand Show Submission Options and select the appropriate settings.

    • To receive an email message when a new submission is uploaded to this folder, enter your email address or a comma-separated list of email addresses in the Notification Email field.

  6. Click Save.
