Your students may submit work online for any assignments published to your gradebook. Any file that could be attached to an email message can be submitted to you through your assignments. All work submitted by students is time stamped so there can be no arguments about when the work was submitted. Students get an archive of all their submitted work in their portal.
Note: Students cannot submit files to calendar-only assignments.
There are several ways to access a list of work submitted by your students for any given assignment.
- On your portal, click the arrow in the New Submissions section to view all newly submitted work.
- From your gradebook, either the student scoresheet (click a student's name in the gradebook) or the assignment scoresheet (click an assignment title from your gradebook).
- Click the assignment title in any calendar and then click the View Submissions link.
- From the Course Center, click the title of any assignment located in the Assignments section.
In all views of student submitted work, you will find the student's name, a time stamp, and a link to download the file.
In addition to submitted work, you can also view any discussion posts the student has made for that assignment on the Assignment Scoresheet. This allows you to grade discussions without leaving the Assignment scoresheet.
To view the student's submitted work, click on the link to download the file. If they have submitted a pdf, the file will automatically load in the browser on the same tab. If you want to download the file or open it in a separate tab or window, right-click (Ctrl-click for Macs) on the link and select the action you want from the context menu.
