Submitting Assignments

When you finish your assignment, you must select Submit. If you don't, your instructor won't receive your completed assignment.

NOTE: Not all instructors will accept or direct students to submit assignments via Blackboard. Please refer to your syllabus and/or instructor for further details.

If your instructor hasn't allowed multiple attempts, you may submit your assignment only once. Before you select Submit, be sure that you have attached any required files.

  1. Open the assignment. On the Upload Assignment page, review the instructions, due date, points possible, and download any files provided by your instructor. If your instructor has added a rubric for grading, you can view it.

  2. Select Write Submission to expand the area where you can type your submission. You can use the options in the editor to format the text. You have creative control over how your content appears and the flexibility to change the order and appearance.

    Example of submission to an assignment. This include the submission directions, including date and points; an arrow pointing to the write submission button to input a written submission, and an attach file option at the bottom of the page

  3. Select Browse My Computer to upload a file from your computer.

    -OR-

    Drag files from your computer to the "hot spot" in the Attach Files area. If your browser allows, you can also drag a folder of files. The files will upload individually. If the browser doesn't allow you to submit your assignment after you upload a folder, select Do not attach in the folder's row to remove it. You can drag the files individually and submit again. You can use the file name or provide another name for the file.

    -OR-

    Browse for a file in the Content Collection, if you have access.

    -OR-

    Browse for a file in cloud storage. You can instantly connect to multiple web apps where you store files, such as in OneDrive® and Google Drive™. If your browser allows, media files you add from cloud storage display online.

  4. Optionally, type Comments about your submission.

  5. Select Submit. The Review Submission History page appears with information about your submitted assignment and a success message with a confirmation number. It is a good idea to copy and save this number as proof of your submission. For assignments with multiple attempts, you receive a different number for each submission. If your institution has enabled email notifications for submission receipts, you'll also receive an email with your confirmation number and details each time you submit coursework.

You won't be able to drag files to upload, view confirmation numbers, or receive email submission receipts if your institution uses an older version of Blackboard Learn.
