Assign Studio Projects in Learning Management Systems
You can assign Studio Projects within Canvas, Schoology, Brightspace by D2L, and Infinite Campus. This allows students to explore the content and answer questions directly in the LMS and grades transfer back to the LMS gradebook.
Teacher Access to Studio Project Assignments
Navigate to Classrooms from the Global Navigation menu in the top left corner to access information from assigned Studio projects.
Select the hyperlinked Assignment name to view individual student completion for specific assignments.
Under Type, Studio Projects appear as a Studio Quiz, Slideshow, or Board. Note that Slideshows and Boards are Non-Gradable.
If the project contains a quiz module or question, it appears as a Studio Quiz. Note that when a student submits a Studio Quiz, you can View Results.
Student Access to Studio Project Assignments
Students access assignments from their My DE homepage.
Studio Boards and Studio Slideshows
When a Studio Board or Studio Slideshow is assigned, the student interacts with the content and then selects Mark as Complete when finished.
When a Studio Quiz is assigned, the student interacts with the content and answers the included question(s). When finished, the student selects Submit Assignment to return for grading.
Note that at any time a student can view submitted work when they navigate to Assignments on their My DE homepage.

When a student completes an assignment, you can access the results from the All Assignments list in My Classrooms. The following are important to note about Studio Quiz assignment results:
- Studio Quizzes show a completion rate for students.
- Single and Multiple Answer questions are automatically graded.
- Short Answer quizzes are graded by the teacher using the embedded rubric. The teacher can also leave comments.
Students can access their grade, as well as teacher feedback, within a Studio project when they select View Results.
