Uploading an Assignment in Moodle

There are different ways your instructor can use a Moodle assignment to collect your work:

  • Asking you to type your response into an online textbox.
  • Requiring you to submit a file online.
  • A combination of both an online textbox answer and submitting a file.

Online Text

From within your course in Moodle, click on an assignment to open it. Carefully read the instructions from your instructor. Click the Add submission button.

Check your Submission status. Here you can see your typed response, the Grading status, Grading criteria if provided, and a space to add Submission comments to your instructor. The Edit my Submission button enables you to edit your response until it is graded.

Note: Double check your Submission status to make sure it reads “submitted for grading”, if it doesn’t, look for the Submit assignment button at the bottom of the page.

Submitting a File

From within your course in Moodle, click on an assignment to open it. Carefully read the instructions from your instructor. Click the Add submission button. Add your file by dragging and dropping the file into the dotted-lined box area provided, or by clicking the Add… icon located in the upper right of the file submission area, browse for your file and upload it. You can see by the icon in the submission box that your file has been attached. Click the Save changes button at the bottom.

Check your Submission status. Here you can see that the file has been submitted for grading, the Grading status, Grading criteria if provided, the file you submitted, and a space to add Submission comments to your instructor. The Edit my Submission button allows you to either add more files (if allowed) or delete files – in case you uploaded the wrong one.

Make sure your Submission status reads “submitted for grading”, if it doesn’t, look for the Submit assignment button at the bottom of the page.

The Submit assignment button is an extra step instructors may or may not use for an assignment. If set, it allows you to keep a draft version of your submission on the system. Once you click submit and confirm you are submitting, your submission will be regarded as final and you will no longer be able to edit it.
