Q. How do I distribute Google Drive documents using the Handout option on an Assignment?
A. If you'd like each of your students to be able to create their own, unique copy of a Google Drive document, use the Handout checkbox when attaching a Read Only or Comment document while creating or editing any Assignment or a Discussion.
Please note: The Handout option is only available to School & District Edition PowerSchool Learning domains who are using our G Suite for Education integration.
Attaching a Google Drive Handout
- To get started, either Edit any existing Assignment or select Add Assignment under the Assignments area of the Activities menu.
- Use the Attach from Google Drive button, under Google Drive Attachments area to search for and select the item in your Google Drive that you'd like to attach.
- Select Read Only or Comment from the Share Mode drop-down menu, and check the Handout checkbox.
- Hit Save to keep your changes.
And that's it! Students who access this Assignment will have the option to Create a Copy of their own, which they can access through their link on the Assignment, and in their own Google Drive. Copies will automatically be shared back with you and other Teachers in the class.
