Returning an assignment to a student

Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. 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 or returning 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 Instructor Comments text box. To allow the student to resubmit the assignment, check Allow Resubmission. When you are ready to return the assignment, click Return to student at the bottom of the screen. In the "Submissions" list for the assignment, under "Status", you will see the value "Returned" for the student in question.
