Submit an assignment

You can see work assigned to you on the Stream or Classwork pages. You complete and turn it in online in Classroom. Your teacher sees what you turned in, and marks it.

You can submit an assignment in 2 ways:

  • If you need to attach anything to the assignment, go to Turn in an assignment.
  • If you don’t need to attach anything, go to Mark an assignment as done.

You can edit an assignment after submitting it. But any assignment turned in or marked done after the due date is marked late.

About Drive files with earlier versions of Android
Attaching files from Drive on your Android device depends on which version you’re running. To check which version of Android your device uses, go to Check your Android version.

If you use Android 4.4 (Kit Kat), you won't see the Drive icon Drive, but you can still attach Drive files:

  • Tap File Upload and then select a file to attach. 
If you use Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean), when you click the Drive icon Drive, you’ll be asked to update your device. For instructions, go to Update your Android version. The update might not work on some older devices, but you can choose another option:
  • Copy the file link from your mobile browser and then tap Add link Link to attach it.
  • Use a computer rather than a mobile device.
