Assignment Archiving allows teachers to keep assignments that have been completed but remove them from student's class & group folders. This will place the assignment in your Archives until you are ready to use it again, and it will allow students to easily access archived assignments to use as a resource for reviewing materials.
To archive activities:
From the activities page you can archive assignments and quizzes by selecting the more actions menu > un-archive.
To un-archive activities:
Navigate to the activities page > click status (or the down carat to the right of status) and check the filter boxes to show Archived and Complete (archiving an assignment marks it as complete). They will show up in the activities list with a file box icon to the right of the activity name. From the activities page you can then un-archive assignments and quizzes by selecting the more actions menu > un-archive.
Teachers also have the ability to archive/un-archive assignments and quizzes from the assignment details page
Archiving assignment folders will preserve your assignment for future use. This is an alternative to deleting an assignment permanently or having to add a copy to your My Files. Remember, deleted assignments will only be able to be restored for up to 30 days!
