Returning an assignment to a student

Note: To complete the procedures in this document, you need to be assigned a role that has the necessary permissions. To find out what your role is, follow the directions in Participant roles. To see a list of what permissions are associated with a given role, see Permissions, roles, and tools. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and Roles: Overview.

When you click Assignments in the menubar, you will see a list of assignments. The "In / New" column displays the number of submissions that have come in from students (the "In" value) and the number of new submissions (the "New" value) for each assignment. These values let you know if you need to take action regarding an assignment.

Detailed instructions for grading assignments, including information on returning an assignment, are in the document Grading an assignment or reviewing student status. Note that once you have begun grading a student's assignment, you can return the assignment to the student with or without a grade. You can make comments both within the text submitted by the student and within the additional comments text box. To allow the student to resubmit the assignment, check Allow Resubmission. When you are ready to return the assignment, click Return at the bottom of the screen. In the "Submissions" list for the assignment, under "Status", you will see the value "Return" for the student in question.
