Student submissions for assignments not showing up

Jump to solution

I finished building my first module.  I have a simple assignment in the module with a due date 2 weeks from now.  I created a student account so I could access the module and to make sure there were no problems..... I did the assignment (1 question in google forms, external link) and submitted it.... well it never show up as being submitted... i hit the speed grade thing as a teacher and it said the student hasnt submitted anything.

When I am in the instructor view, the assignment isnt there... so I have 2 computers.... 1 logged into the teacher account the other to the student account.

the module and assignment was imported from Canvas Commons, so it was someone else google form.... does that matter?  I would think that the links would be updated.

Hi  @foutsd ...

Even if the content you have in your course was from someone else that you got from Canvas Commons, the fact that you say it's a Google Form leads me to believe that the original instructor intended for the assignment to be submitted via Google (and he/she collected those responses by signing in to Google instead of Canvas).  So, if you tested out the assignment by filling out the Google form, your responses may have been submitted to that instructor.

This is all really speculation, though, because I cannot see your course or get access to your school's Canvas environment.  Most Community members only have access to their own school's Canvas environment and courses.

I hope this will help a bit, David.

Hi  @foutsd ...

It sounds like you were submitting a Google Form inside of (or linked from) your Canvas course (which would be submitted to the Google server ... not Canvas) instead of actually submitting the assignment in Canvas.  Once you submit something to a Canvas assignment, you would see that assignment submission from your instructor view via the SpeedGrader.

Does this help to answer your question?  Looking forward to hearing back from you soon, David.  Take care...stay safe...be well.
