Each assignment has a title and a button. The button you will see is dependent upon the current status of the assignment.

  • If the assignment has a red status indicator, then the status is not submitted and the student may submit work to the assignment.
  • If the assignment has a yellow status indicator, then status is awaiting assessment and
    the student is either awaiting the instructor’s assessment or awaiting a resubmission.
  • If the assignment has a green status indicator, then the assignment has an assessment published status and the student may view the assessment.

On the Dashboard, assignments are ordered by submission status. Assignments where the student has been asked to resubmit appear first. Then assignments which have not been submitted are displayed. Next, any assignment which is awaiting an assessment appears and, finally, any assignment which has a published assessment is displayed last.

Note: You may filter your posted assignments by term and/ or course. These dropdown boxes are located toward the upper right of your posted assignments.
