How do students submit assignments?

When teachers create an assignment with submissions enabled, students can submit files directly on Schoology.

 

On the web platform


To make a submission to an assignment from the web platform, students can:

  1. Click on the assignment for which they'd like to make a submission.
  2. Click on the Submit Assignment button in the Submissions area in the right column.
  3. Select one of these options:
    • Upload—Select a file saved to the computer.
    • Create—Create a document on the web using the text editor.
    • Resources—Select a file from the My Resources area or from a Resource App. If the student is using Google Drive, simply check the Google Drive file you'd like to use and click on the Select button to import the file to the assignment.
  4. Click the Submit button to finish.
