How do I know when my assignment has been submitted in a course using Assignment Enhancements?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I know when my assignment has been submitted in a course using Assignment Enhancements?

If Assignment Enhancements is enabled in your course, you can view an assignment to verify your assignment submission.

All file submissions also appear in your personal unfiled folder.


  • If the assignment you are accessing displays differently, Assignment Enhancements may not be enabled in your course or your instructor may not have used a supported assignment type. Please view this guide for more information.
  • The Assignment Enhancements - Student feature preview does not support the following assignment types: Peer Reviews and Cloud Assignments.

View Assignment Status

The Progress Tracker displays the assignment submission status. A successfully submitted assignment displays a Submitted status [1].

Additionally, you can view your most recent submission [2].

If you choose, you may resubmit another version of your assignment using the Try Again button [3].

If you've submitted multiple assignment submissions, you can view previous submissions by clicking the Attempt drop-down [4].

To add an assignment comment for your instructor, click the Add Comment button [5].


  • If you're not able to resubmit work, your instructor may have limited the number of allowed submissions or the assignment may no longer be accepting submissions due to the assignment's availability dates.
  • Once you've submitted your work, the assignment will still display in the Assignments page and the Syllabus.

View Assignment Score

If your assignment has been graded by your instructor, you can view the score for each attempt in the Attempt Score field [1]. If your assignment has been graded without a submission, you can view your score in the Offline Score field [2].
