How do I submit an assignment on behalf of a group using Assignment Enhancements?

A group assignment allow students to work together on an assignment and submit it as a group using Assignment Enhancements. Only one group member needs to submit the assignment on behalf of the group.

Any attachments added as part of a graded assignment submission are also copied to your group files but are not counted against your user quota. However, once the file has been uploaded as a submission, you cannot delete the file. If you upload a file from your computer, the file is stored in the group Submissions folder. However, please note that if you submit a file that was previously uploaded to your group files, the file is stored in your Submissions folder.

Notes:

  • When a group assignment is submitted, any submission drafts belonging to other group members are deleted.
  • Previously uploaded group files cannot be accessed in the assignment details page. To submit a previously uploaded group file as an assignment submission, you must move the group file to user files.
  • Group assignments do not support Student Annotation assignments.
