We made it easy for you to group your Assignments into separate Portfolio Templates. Each Portfolio Template is like a guiding blueprint for a portfolio that students will generate. When students complete the assignments of each template, they populate their own course portfolios at a ratio of one portfolio per template. You may also choose to grade, align outcomes, or attach rubrics to a Portfolio Template, meaning you can give a whole group of assignments an overarching assessment.

By default, each Course starts with one Portfolio template already set up. This way you can start adding assignments right away. But you can easily add more templates by following the instructions ahead:

Adding Portfolio Templates

1. Click the Add Another Template button at the lower right-hand corner of the window and a modal will appear
