The Moodle ISU assignment tool can be used for a variety of reasons. Generally, you will be required to submit something (a file or text) to the instructor for assessment. This handout will familiarize you with how to submit an assignment in Moodle ISU, how to verify your submission and how to view feedback once your assignment has been graded.
This guide will help you to understand:
When an instructor creates an assignment in Moodle ISU, they can determine if the assignment will be submitted online via a file, submitted by entering text directly into Moodle, submitted in class, or a combination of any of these options. If you have questions about the assignment, it is always a good idea to contact your instructor. This guide will help you to understand how to use each type of assignment.
Note: Once your files are uploaded, you can remove your files or edit your file by clicking Edit my submission and clicking the icon just to the right of the file name.
Note: There is a time limit on how long a page can be left open while you are typing. Be aware that if you type for too long you could lose your text. One way to avoid this is to type your response into another program (such as Word, Notepad or TextEdit) then copy and paste your submission into Moodle.
This assignment type consists solely of the assignment instructions. No answers or files can be submitted on Moodle ISU. When the assignment is viewed, only a description with a due date will appear. If the instructor enters grades for this assignment into Moodle, you will be able to view the grade and any comments for the assignment.
Note: Most assignments have a specific time period when they are available. Submitting an assignment after the due date will flag the assignment as late.
Verifying Assignment Submission
Click on the link that takes you to the assignment. You should now see that the assignment you have just uploaded/entered has been Submitted for grading.

Note: If your professor allows resubmissions, you will need to scroll down to the previous submissions to see feedback.
Note: You can view the comments in the Feedback comments section without opening a file. To view the Feedback files you will need to open the file.
