Completing and submitting an assignment

Your instructor or project leader may set up assignments for you to complete and submit online. To work on an assignment:

  1. Open the site for the course or project with the assignment.

  2. In the menubar, click Assignments.

  3. Click the name of the assignment to open it.

    Note: If your instructor does not allow late submission and it is past the due date, you will not be able to work on it.

  4. To work on the assignment, follow the instructions from your instructor or project leader. You may need to type something into the text box, or perhaps add an attachment, or both.

  5. To add an attachment, click the Add Attachments button in the assignment window. For instructions, see Options for adding attachments.

  6. If you'd like to see how your assignment will look to your instructor or project leader, click Preview.

  7. If you want to save your assignment to complete later, click Save Draft at the bottom of the screen. When you want to reopen it, you'll find it listed in the assignment list with a status of "In progress".

    Note: While your assignment is saved as a draft, your instructor cannot see it. For your instructor to see it, you must submit the assignment. Even if you submit it in another form, as long as you have a draft for that assignment, your instructor cannot enter a grade for it in Sakai@UD.

  8. When you have finished, click Submit at the bottom of the screen.

    Note: Don't click Submit until you're certain you're finished with an assignment. Once you click Submit, you'll no longer be able to access the assignment (e.g., to add more text or attachments) unless your instructor returns it to you or has allowed for multiple submissions.

You will receive an email message confirming your submission. If you do not receive a confirmation email, check to see if you have successfully submitted the assignment.
