Building Bunk Collections can be a great way for students to practice—and demonstrate—their online research skills. We’ve built a tool that allows educators to create a research assignment and to easily gather student submissions. Here’s how to use it.

In order to create a Bunk Assignment, you’ll need to first enter your name and email address. If you’d like, you can also use the same form to give your Assignment a title, a due date, and instructions. Click Create Assignment, and you’ll receive an email with a unique ID code along with a shareable link.

To distribute the assignment to your students, you can give them the ID code, the link—or both.

  • If you provide them with the ID code, students will need to include it when submitting their Collection to your Assignment.
  • If you provide them with the shareable link, ensure your students click the Start a Collection button on the Assignment page to ensure that their collection is submitted to your Assignment.

Once your Assignment is all set up, you’ll receive an email notification whenever a student submits a collection.

To see all Collections submitted for an Assignment you’ve already created, enter your email address and six-character ID code below.
