How to Upload a Graded Assignment Submitted through Email


After completing this how-to you will have knowledge needed to upload a graded assignment that was submitted by email rather than through the Assignment activity.  There might be a time when a student is unable to submit their assignment through the Assignment activity and the student may have to submit the assignment through email.  In most cases, the instructor can download the paper, grade the assignment and save it to their computer.  To return the graded assignment with feedback, review the steps below.  **Note:  If the assignment uses a rubric for grading, the rubric will not be accessible to use for grading with this process.
