How do I know if my student has submitted an assignment as an observer?
As an observer, you can verify that your student has submitted an assignment from the submission details page.
Note: If a course does not display a Course Navigation Grades link, you can view course grades from the Canvas dashboard.
In Course Navigation, click the Grades link.
Open Assignment Submission Details
Click the assignment name.
View Submission Details
The submission details page displays a submission confirmation which includes the date and time the student submitted the assignment.
