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.  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.

Select Assignments by Student.

Change View to Assignment List by Student.

On the Assignments page, select the Assignments by Student tab.
