When you access an assignment from the Dropbox, the assignment opens in a screen that provides you with the assignment instructions and due date.

Submit an Assignment to a Assignment Folder

To submit an assignment, simply select the folder into which you want to place it. You can also click on the Browse button to find the correct file. You can then add a brief description of the file and click Upload. If you wish to view a file you have already submitted simply click on the View Submitted File button on the bottom right hand side of the screen.

From the main Assignment page, select the folder to which you would like to submit an assignment.

Do the following:

  • Click the Add a File button to browse for the file you want to submit. You can attach files from your local computer or storage device, or from a group locker.
  • Enter any Comments you want to submit with the file.
  • Click Submit.

Please note: Any rubric against which submissions are evaluated is listed on the submission page so you know how your submission is evaluated and to which learning objectives the folder is related.

Rubrics are an assessment tool used to evaluate an activity or item based on a predefined set of criteria. They help ensure that activities and items are evaluated fairly and consistently. If rubrics are used in your course, they will be listed in the Rubrics tool, found on your course navigational bar.
