How do I create an assignment in Teams for Education?

Educators who have not had training in our Microsoft teams for education course always ask about how they can create a new assignment in Teams for Education. Educators can find themselves unsure as to where they go to create their new assignment and how to send it to users.

Our videos below demonstrate how a user can create a new assignment using the desktop client.


  • First Navigate to the class you wish to give the assignment to from the teams icon in the sidebar.
  • Select the assignments tab in the class team.
  • Press the Create button, and give your assignment a new name.
  • Enter the instructions for the assignments that the students will receive.
  • Choose if there are points for this assignment and if desired attach a marking rubric to the assignment.
  • Assign the assignment to the class or to specific students if desired.
  • Set the date and time the assignment is due by.
  • This is one of the topics covered in our Microsoft Teams for education Course. Take the course today to learn everything you will need to know to manage a class effectively and use Microsoft Teams for education to its full potential.

    Microsoft Teams for education is more than just a communications tool and can be a vital way of providing a reliable method of online learning to pupils. However it was originally designed to be a powerful collaboration tool for business users within an organisation. If you are interested in learning to use Microsoft Teams for business uses rather than as an educator then our Teams End User Course can be of use in teaching a novice user how to utilise Teams in their day-to-day activities as part of a larger organisation. In addition, we offer our Microsoft Teams Admin Course that teaches a user to be able to create new teams and administer existing teams for your organisation so that they can collaborate seamlessly.
