How do I view assignment submissions in the Teacher app on my Android device?

When you open a course, you can see the list of assignments in your course. For each assignment, you can view the status and whether or not submissions need grading. You can also view each student's submission, comments, and files.

This lesson shows how to view assignments from the Assignments page. However, submissions can also be viewed in the page for their respective assignment type.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.
