Hello  @sfowler1 ...

It is not possible for you to remove a student's submission from an assignment once it has been submitted.  Students only see the most recent submission for a given assignment.  Instructors, on the other hand, have full access to all submissions...which are date and time stamped.  See the section called "Evaluate Multiple Submissions" about mid-way down this Guide: How do I view the details of a submission for a student in SpeedGrader?.

I hope this has helped to answer your question, Susan.  If not, though, please let Community members know how we can be of further help to you with this.  Thanks...be well...stay safe.

I find this solution to be a real problem. What if a student mistakenly submits to the wrong assignment? I want to be able to just nix that attempt completely. Easier for the student and faculty, all around.

Hi @tahickson ...

I searched the Feature Ideas portion of the Community website, and I found the following for you:

Delete submissions by students

If you feel that this Feature Idea aligns with something you'd like to see implemented in Canvas, you might want to consider giving it a star rating [(1) How do idea conversations work in the Instructure ... - Instructure Community (canvaslms.com)] and also leaving a comment at the bottom of the Feature Idea page letting Instructure know why this would be important to you in Canvas.  If you can provide real-world examples...all the better.

Hope this will help a bit.
