Verifying that an assignment was submitted

Both you and your instructor have access to a log of all actions you have taken when submitting an assignment. If something has gone wrong or if you are not sure when your assignment was submitted you can look at the log.

Viewing your submission log

  1. Go to the assignment list in your course. Click the Submitted or Not submitted link under the Status heading. The submission log will appear.

  2. You will see a list of actions including the time and name of the person who performed each action. This is an example of a typical submission:

    Since this is a log, you will not see errors. You will only see successful actions. A normal submission includes all of the actions below, so if any of these actions are missing, that is proof that something has gone wrong and interrupted the submission process:

    • Viewed assignment page
    • Added 2 pages to Q1
    • Clicked submit button
    • Upload started: image1.jpg, image2.jpg
    • Upload completed
    • Submission processing started
    • Submission processing completed

If something goes wrong you will normally see an error message. A list of errors and their resolutions is available on the Completing and submitting an assignment page.
