FLO Student Support

Assignment Resubmission

Under certain circumstances, you may need to make changes to an assignment submission after you've submitted it for grading.  This could be the case if you accidentally submitted the wrong file, or if your teacher requests that you resubmit the assignment.  In both cases, your teacher will need to manually allow you to make changes to your submission.  This can be accomplished by either reverting your status to 'draft' or by 'reopening' your submission.

If you have arranged a re-submission with your teacher, but do not see one of the below options immediately, please give your Topic Coordinator a little time to make the manual change to your submission.  If you continue to be unable to process your re-submission, please check in with your Topic Coordinator before contacting the FLO Helpdesk for assistance.  

If your assignment has been reverted to draft status

If your teacher has reverted your assignment to draft status, you will see that you once again have the option to 'edit submission' or 'submit assignment'.  To make changes to your assignment, click on the 'edit submission' button.   When you are ready to finalise your submission, make sure you click on the final 'submit assignment' button.

If your assignment has been reopened

If your assignment has been reopened, you will see that your submission status will have changed to 'reopened', and you will be provided new submission options.  You will see your previous attempt at the bottom of the page.

  • Select 'add a new attempt based on previous submission' to copy the contents of your previous submission into a new submission for you to work on.
  • Select 'add a new attempt' to open a blank submission for you to work on.
When you are ready to finalise your submission, make sure you click on the final 'submit assignment' button.
