FLO Student Support
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 statusIf 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. To delete a file, right click on it then select 'delete'. When you are ready to finalise your submission, make sure you click on the final 'submit assignment' button.
Tip: FLO won't let you leave the submission box empty, so only delete your original file when you are ready to upload its replacement.
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.
A note regarding the 'attempt number' field: If your teacher has enabled resubmission for an assignment, you may see text reading something along the lines of 'this is attempt 1 (2 attempts allowed)'. This alone does not indicate that you have been granted a second or subsequent attempt, but rather that the assignment has been set up to allow for resubmission inline with the assessment variation procedures.
If a resubmission has been enabled for you, you will also see the 'add a new attempt based on previous submission' and 'add a new attempt' buttons.
