Instructor Q&A

Uploading photos or PDFs as assignments


Hi all,

I am a design teacher, and my students work with physical portfolios. My school is moving towards the use of Schoology for assessments and marking, but I cannot see how this can cater to my subject. I am very new to this, so there is possibly a way around this that I haven't identified.

Is there a way for students to submit PDFs or Photos as assignments?

Usually, one would assign say, a google doc, which students make copies of and resubmit with their work within. This won't work in my area. If I scanned in their work and sent it to them to upload, could this work? Or is there an app that could help?

I'm also trying to streamline the assessment process by looking for the easiest, most efficient method for this.


Thank you!

    Hi Samantha, 

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community! 

    Students can submit PDFs and photos to the Assignment material type, which can be graded and automatically added to the gradebook. 

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
