What is a Blackboard "Assignment"?

A Blackboard "Assignment" is a particular tool you can use for any assessment that asks the students to turn in one of more files. Examples would be Word documents, Spreadsheets, Images, etc. The assignment files are shared only between the individual student and the instructor. If you want to have students view or discuss each other's work you would have them attach files in a Discussion Board forum or create a shared Blog or Wiki.
