Submitting and Returning Assignments
Submit and Return Assignments or other work
With Webspiration Classroom, students can electronically send copies of and receive feedback on their work, such as a student turning in an assignment and receiving it back with comments. All submitted and returned documents are date and time stamped in the recipient's Document Manager when they are received, so you always know exactly when you have received documents.
Note: Any document can be submitted as work. Only documents that were retrieved from a class's folder will keep the "Assignment" attribute seen in your Document Manager.
When a student is ready to submit work, they simply choose Submit… from the Classes menu of an open document and follow the dialog instructions. A copy of their work is submitted to the recipient(s) they choose. The teacher and/or other recipient(s) receive a message with a link to the document, and will see the document in their My Docs section of their Document Manager with a "Submitted" status flag.
If multiple documents with the same name are submitted to a recipient, numbers will be added to the document names so that previously submitted copies are not deleted. For example, if a teacher received “Book Report” from a student, subsequent submissions from other students called “Book Report” would be renamed "Book Report1", "BookReport2" and so forth.
Teachers can easily return work which has been submitted to them. To return a copy of an open individual document, choose Return… from the Classes menu and follow the dialog instructions. Teachers can also return copies of multiple documents simultaneously from within the Document Manager. This allows a teacher to review student work as time permits, and then return work to all students at the same time. To return work from the Document Manager, select the document(s) to return, and then click the Return Work button on the top toolbar. The Return Work button is only operable in the Document Manager when the selected documents show a “Submitted” status.
The recipient of the returned document will receive an email with a link to the document and will see the document in their Document Manager with a “Returned” status.
After the first time a document is returned to a user, the recipient will see a number after the document name showing which copy it is so as not to confuse it with their original. For example, when they receive a returned document for the second time, a “1” will follow the name of the document. If they receive it again after submitting it, it will have a “2” following the name of the document, and so on.
