Canvas Assignments allow you to submit work for a grade, whether those are documents, media, or other materials. Below, we will detail some of the main components of Assignments in Canvas.
You can navigate to Assignments a number of different ways in a Canvas course. Below are the main ways:
When viewing an Assignment, scroll all the way to the bottom to view the rubric (if applicable).
Rubrics are broken down into columns: Criteria, Ratings, and Points. the rubric displayed below has four rating options for the first criteria: Excellent, Good, Fair, and Poor. Students can earn up to 30 points for this criteria, depending on their performance.
When viewing an assignment, the display will be similar to the image below. you'll be able to view the Due Date, Points, Submission Formats, number of assignment attempts you've submitted, and the total allowed attempts.
When you are ready to submit an assignment, click the Start Assignment button at the top right of the Assignment page.
An area will appear, allowing you to upload your submission. In this sample assignment there are three options: Upload File, Use Webcam, and Text Entry. After clicking one of those options and following the prompts, you will click the Submit Assignment button to upload your submission.
Immediately after submitting an assignment, the button at the top right will change from Start Assignment to Re-submit Assignment. This is the first indicator that you have submitted the assignment.
Another indicator that your assignment has been submitted successfully can be viewed in the Grades area.
