Submitting Work Online
Students can submit work for any gradebook assignment via School Loop directly to the teacher’s account. An archive is kept with date and time stamps of each submission for the student and the teacher.
When a student clicks on the name of an assignment from their portal calendar or from the Task List: Current Assignments on their Dashboard, they will find two Submit Work links; Locker and Device After clicking one of the links, the student will be able to browse for the file in their locker or on their computer for the file that he or she wants to submit (files can be in any format and can include Word documents, pdfs, media files, etc.).
Once the file has been submitted, the file will appear in the Dropbox at the top of the student page. Each file is displayed with a date and time stamp of the submission, a link to the assignment to which it was submitted, and the title of the work submitted. If a student resubmits the work, it will overwrite previous submissions.
Using School Loop Documents
With our School Loop Document feature, students can turn in work from within School Loop without having to upload external documents. This is particularly good news for iPad and iPhone users, since uploading files from the device is not supported by mobile Safari. School Loop Documents are a good way for students to submit links for work they have created on other sites. Teachers can view and grade turned in School Loop documents right from the assignment or student scoresheet. Here's how it works.
1. Students will go to the Locker icon at the top of their portal.
2. Click the Add pull-down menu.
3. Choose New Document from the pull-down menu.
4. Name the document and type your content.
5. Click Save & Exit.
Once the document is in the locker, it can be submitted the same way as any other file in the student locker. School Loop documents can be distinguished from other uploaded files by the document icon and the SL Doc type.
Each document can only be submitted once, but the student can go back and edit the document by using the Edit button on the bottom left. Teachers will be able view updated versions of the turned in document.
Students can see the date of the version they are viewing on the top left and can choose to view any saved version using the View Version pull-down menu on the right.

Accessing Submitted Work
You will find all work turned in for a particular assignment on the Assignment Scoresheet. You can get to the Assignment Scoresheet by clicking the name of the assignment either on the main spreadsheet or on the Assignment List in the gradebook. In addition, to submitted work, you can also view any discussion posts the student has made for that assignment on the Assignment Scoresheet. A third way is to click the assignment in your calendar, and then click View Submissions on the View Assignment page. You can also click a student's name within your gradebook to see a list of all work turned in by that student on the Student Scoresheet.
Submitting work from Google Drive
For districts who have decided to turn on Google Drive Integration, students can add Google Drive to their locker and submit Google Docs directly from their google drive. Teachers who have connected their Google Drive from their locker can open and edit those Docs. See our Google Drive Integration page for more information.
Submitting Work from iPads
The School Loop iPad app makes it easy for students to save files from their iPad to their School Loop locker, and to turn work in for grading. See the iPad App for Students Help page for more details.
Q: We are a plus site, why can't my student submit work?
A: Check to see if your assignment was created as a calendar only assignment. Gradebook Plus students cannot submit files to calendar-only assignments.
