Option 2: Add assignemnts from the Resource Library

Easily assign tasks from the Resource Library to your chosen classes. This allows you to assign tasks to multiple classes at the same time. Read more about it here.

In both ways, the following elements will be added to Classroom when creating a Flat for Education assignment:

  • Title and instructions
  • Linked attachments (links, embeds and Google Drive files)
  • Grading options
  • Publication and due dates
  • Google Classroom Topic
  • Assigned students list

When specifying a publication date, your assignment will be marked as "draft" in your Google Classroom course. This is a great way to experiment with creating an assignment without making it available to your students.

Post your assignment

Now that your assignment is ready, you can post it. If you want to see the student view to see how it will look for them, check out our dedicated article.

You can now discover how your students will experience Flat with Google Classroom. Their submissions made with Flat for Education will be sent to Classroom, as well as their grades (whether automatically or manually set).

Copy an assignment to other classes (re-using assignments)

The assignments you create within the Resoruce Library in Flat for Education can be assigned to multiple classes and re-used over time. Learn more about this here.

⚠️ Due to a limitation in Google Classroom, Flat for Education doesn't have the right to access any assignments you copy from the Google Classroom interface. That's why we recommend always making the copy via our interface.

Reviews and follow-up
