How do I submit a text entry assignment in the Student app on my Android device?

If your instructor has allowed a text entry assignment submission, you can type or copy and paste text as an assignment submission in the Student app using your Android device. Once you submit your assignment, you can verify your assignment submission. You can also resubmit assignments if your instructor allows.

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

Note: Your instructor may restrict certain assignment types, including text entry, so this option may not be available for your assignment submission.
