Showing students how to turn in work

Google ClassroomIt is of course very important that students know how to turn in their work. This article describes how to do this for Questions and Assignments.


Questions

Responding to questions is fairly straightforward.

  1. Students can open the question, either in the Stream or Classwork tab, or by clicking the Open button that was sent to them by email.
  2. Students enter their answer top-right, and click the Hand in button.

 

Assignments

Responding to assignments has some additional steps.

  1. Students can open the question, either in the Stream or Classwork tab, or by clicking the Open button that was sent to them by email.
  2. Students click the Add or create button top-right.
  3. This will allow the student to upload any file that they've created.
  4. Alternatively the student can create a new Google Doc, Slide, Sheet or Drawing, that will open in a new browser tab for editing. When they've finished editing, they can simply close the tab.
  5. Students can then add further files as needed.
  6. When the student is ready, they can click the Hand in button.

Once the student has finished editing a Google Doc, there is an option for them to click a Turn in button, available in the Google Doc editor. This is the same as the Hand in button, but prevents them from adding any further files.

 

Unsubmitting

At any time, students can amend their work, by clicking the Unsubmit button, making their changes and then resubmitting their work by clicking the Turn in button once more. Note that during this process, the turned in work transfers ownership between the student and the teacher. Grades aren't visible to the student, until the Teacher Returns the work.

 

Turning in late

When you set a Due date, students will still be able to turn in their work late, but it will be flagged as a late submission.
