How do teachers use Assignment Submissions?


There is a submissions feature that is located in the right column of the Assignment profile. This area allows students to submit files for a particular assignment.


Filter Submissions

You may filter the submissions by the following options, which can depend on the assignment's due date.

  • Received
  • Needs grading
  • On time
  • Late
  • Graded
  • Not submitted


Download Student Submissions

To download all student submissions, click on the download icon in the right column of an assignment with submissions.


To download or view each individual file, click on a student submission, and click the Download File button.



Grade the Assignment

To grade the item directly from the docviewer, enter a value in the field in the upper right, labeled Grade. Grades and comments entered in this area will automatically sync with the course Gradebook. If this field does not appear for the assignment, it's possible that the assignment may not be associated with a grading category. To check the category associated with the assignment, follow these steps:

  1. Close the submissions docviewer by clicking on the x that appears at the top.
  2. Click on the gear on the upper right of the assignment profile.
  3. Click on the option to Edit the assignment.
  4. Make sure that the Category is not set to (Ungraded).
  5. Click Save Changes to complete.


Give Student Feedback

The right panel of the submission docviewer allows you to communicate one-on-one with the student. When you leave a comment for the student in this area, the student will receive a menu notification on the top menu of their Schoology account. You may also upload files back to the student through the right panel.


You may also use the annotation tool bar located at the bottom of the docviewer to mark the submission. Saving the changes will display the annotation marks to students when they open their assignment submissions from their account. These annotations do not alter the submission file itself, so you may always use the Download File button to download the original file.
