How do I submit an assignment on behalf of a student?

Occasionally, a student may not be able to submit an assignment and will send the assignment to the instructor as an email attachment instead. In these situations, instructors may want to upload the assignment on behalf of the student to have a complete archive of student work for the assignment.

The assignment must still be accepting submissions in order for the instructor to be able to submit on behalf of a student.  

Go to Assignments.

Go to Assignments.

Select the Assignments tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

Change View to Assignment List by Student.

Change View to Assignment List by Student.

On the Assignment List page, select Assignment List by Student from the View drop down menu.

Expand the view for a student.

  1. Click the arrow icon (Show student's assignments/submissions) to the left of the student's name for whom you are submitting.  
  2. The view will expand and display a list of available assignments.

Click Submit on behalf of Student.

Click the Submit on behalf of Student link under the assignment title.

Browse to attach student's file.

After clicking Submit on behalf of Student, the next page is the same page a student would see if they were submitting.  Click the Browse button to locate and select the student's file that has been saved on your computer.

Click Submit.

After attaching the file, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the box beside Honor Pledge (if added) and then click Submit.

Verify submission.

Returning to the Assignment List by Student, you will see the submission information under the Submitted column.  Notice that the information indicates that the assignment was submitted by someone other than the student.
