To link an assignment to a specific matrix cell, you will first need to associate the site in which the assignment resides with the Matrices tool containing the target matrix and cell. See ARCHIVED: Associating a site with the Matrices tool.

In the site with the assignment:

  1. From the menubar, choose Assignments.
  2. Locate the assignment to be linked, or create and save the assignment and return to the "Assignment List" page.
  3. Under the appropriate assignment title, click Create/Edit Matrix Links.

    Note: If Create/Edit Matrix Links is not visible, the current site has not yet been associated with the Matrices tool in any portfolio sites. Contact the portfolio site owner to request the association.

  4. From the drop-down menu next to "Site", choose the portfolio site containing the matrix to which you wish to link the assignment.

    Note: If the portfolio site you are looking for is not listed in the drop-down menu, the current site has not yet been associated with the Matrices tool in that site. Contact the portfolio site owner to request the association.

  5. All of the matrices in the selected portfolio site will be displayed. To see the description and guidance for a cell, click the information icon ( information icon ).
  6. To link the assignment to a cell, check the box in the cell. You can check multiple cells.
  7. To link the same assignment to matrix cells in another site, select the site from the drop-down menu, and check the desired cells.
  8. When you are finished making links, click Save to return to the assignment list.

When the assignment is opened, information about the links is displayed. In addition, when a student submits the assignment, the student's submission is visible both in the Assignments tool and in the matrix cell(s) to which the assignment has been linked.

Note for coordinators: To see a list of the items linked to a specific cell, edit the matrix containing the cell. Then edit the cell in question, and click View Items Linked to this Cell. Each linked item is listed, along with the item type and name of the site in which the item is located.
