How do I delete a students assignment so they can resubmit?
Hi Vivian Baxter! My understanding is that you can not delete the assignment, but all the student needs to do is resubmit and the submission will override the old one. I hope this helps!
Since it is a Turn-It-In assignment, the student has not been able to resubmit. I was able to delete it in turn-it-in, but not in the grade book.
Hi VivianAs Belinda says, it's not possible for a course teacher or even an admin to remove a student's submission from Canvas. This can only be done by Instructure's engineers if you log a support ticket giving details of the course, assignment and student's name. In my experience they will only do this if the request comes from the institution's Canvas admin rather than the course teacher. Therefore you should contact the local Canvas admin at your school/college and ask if they can submit a support ticket on your behalf.
Thanks Steve Watts! I didn't know that it could be done by a help ticket. That's good to know if I run into that sort of urgent need in the future.
Hi Vivian Baxter...
Since it is a Turn-It-In assignment, the student has not been able to resubmit.
I'm not sure if you are using the Turnitin LTI version integrated with Canvas, but there are settings that either allow students to only submit one time or they can re-submit. Here is a screen shot from inside the Turnitin LTI interface:
I hope this helps, Vivian.
Belinda Stutzman and Vivian Baxter...
If I can offer a slight clarification for assignments that are not submitted via Turnitin... When students submit an assignment in a course, they are only able to see their most recently submission. However, from an instructor's point of view, the instructor is always able to see all submissions from a student. Everything is time/date stamped. Check out the section called "Evaluate Multiple Submissions" in this Guide: How do I view the details of a submission for a student in SpeedGrader?
I hope this helps.
