Submitting on behalf of a student

To submit on behalf of a student or edit a submission, you will have to navigate to the student’s submission page and enter responses or upload files as the student would. Students cannot resubmit or edit their submissions once the due date has passed. Instructors and Facilitators can edit and resubmit on behalf of students until grades are returned.

Students may have completed some of their responses but were unable to submit their assessment. If you navigate to their submission page, you will see any text or multiple choice questions the student has completed successfully so far. Similarly, any changes you make to the responses will be automatically saved and visible to the student if they view their submission. If the student has uploaded files to PDF/image upload questions but has not submitted them yet, you will NOT see the files when you view the student’s submission — you will need to re-upload those files because they are not automatically saved. You will need to click the Submit button to make the student’s work available for grading.

If you submit past the due date, the student’s submission will still be considered late and any penalty you have set will be applied. You can adjust the student’s penalty by following the instructions on this page: Accommodation options for assigned assessments

Note: If you only need to correct the rotation of uploaded pages, you do not need to resubmit the student’s work. You can do this while you are grading by following the instructions here: Rotating a page of student work.

  1. In your assessment, click on Students in the sidebar.

  2. You will see a list of students. Locate the student, then under the View heading, click Submission.

    You will see the student’s submission page.

  3. Here, you can upload files, enter responses, or make changes to the submission if needed.

    If the student has sent you files to upload on their behalf, drag and drop the student’s files to the upload areas under the questions or browse to locate them. You can drag pages between questions.

    If you need to rotate a page, click the magnifying glass icon on the page, then click the Rotate page button. To remove a page, click the “x”.

  4. When you’re ready, click Submit for evaluation.

    Once the submission has completed, you will see a submission confirmation message. Scroll through the submission below to ensure that the student’s work appears correctly.
