A student submitted a paper to the wrong assignment. Is there a way to delete the incorrect submission?
Currently, you cannot delete a submission from an assignment in Canvas. What you can do is open the assignment back up just for that student and have them re-submit.
How do I assign an assignment to an individual student?
There are a couple of feature requests that address this issue and might provide more insight:
Move or Delete Incorrectly Submitted Assignments
Submit an assignment on behalf of a student
Thanks for your reply
Sad that this "great idea" was submitted in 2015 and 2 years later is not even in line to be added.
This is a very important feature. Students don't need to be reminded of errors, and faculty don't need clutter of assignments that will never be read or graded. I am surprised that it is not more frequently requested. It's in every LMS I've ever worked with until this one.
