Tasks are non-digital submissions such as artwork, oral presentations, hand-written essays or a face-to-face discussions.  

It is also possible to create and add Microsoft or Google files and allow your students to work on them using the Task tool. Tasks allow the teacher to provide digital directions and grading specifications, but the work will be submitted, assessed, and graded manually.

Tasks have the same types of options as Assignments, however assessment also has the options to allow participants to track their completion.
