Can students submit a Collaboration doc in a group assignment

Jump to solution

It seems the easiest way to add student groups to a shared Google Doc is with Collaborations. The instructor wants the doc to be a graded assignment. Can students upload the Collaboration doc in a group assignment set for file upload?

Do both the teacher and TA roles have access to all the Collaboration docs. If students cannot attach the collaboration in the group assignment, the TA will need to view the docs through Collaborations.

Yes, this will work.  With any assignment set to File Upload, students can submit from Google Drive or OneDrive if those integrations are enabled.  So if the collaboration was created using Google Apps, a student can submit that collaborative document to an Assignment just like any other file in their Google Drive account.  And if it's a group assignment, that file is summitted for everyone in the group.  

As for the teacher and TA having access, if they Teacher initially created the document under collaborations they should already have access to it.  I'm not as certain about a TA but they should see it listed under collaborations and I think can click to access.  Keep in mind that when the file is submitted, it's a copy of the collaboration file and submitted exactly as it was when they clicked submit.  Accessing the file through Collaborations lets you see the file in it's current state which could have been edited.  Viewing it through Collaborations also lets you view the history of the file as capture by Google app or OneDrive.  You won't see that history on the submitted version to the assignment.

Hope that helps,
Rick
