Group assessment in Blackboard Learn

We have the latest version of Blackboard Learn in the university I work for. I have tried to find a suitable tool for group assessments but there doesn't seem to be a standard tool.


In the past, at the University of Edinburgh I used a building block/plug-in called 'group assignment' in which students were divided in groups, a member of the group submitted once and the submission was the same for all the members of the group. The tutor only had to mark once the submission and all the students in the group automatically received the same feedback. They could access the feedback via the Gradecentre.


Is there any way to achieve this using any tool of Blackboard? Are there additional developments that can be purchased?


Thank you very much.
