NoteYou can only work on activities during the time period set by your teacher. For example, you may be able to see an upcoming activity but not start it until you are in class.

For certain questions, you may be able to upload a file from your device or record audio in your browser by clicking Upload or Record, respectively. File size and audio recording length limitations are determined by the system administrator.

A list of all questions and their point value displays. Your progress on each question displays in the "Status" column.

  1. Optionally, If any question does not display a "Status" of “Saved,” click the question to return to it and then complete it. You can also review your answers to any saved questions.

A confirmation message displays. Depending on your teacher’s setup, you may be allowed to review your answers after submitting the activity for grading. If the questions still display as links, you can click them to review your answers.

Note: Depending on your teacher’s setup, you may be able to view whether certain questions are correct or incorrect as soon as you submit your answers. For file upload or response-type questions, the status displays as "Pending" until your teacher grades them manually.
