Ensuring the Assignment is Submitted

Instructors may choose different options for Assignment submission settings in their course, and instructors have the option to allow for "draft" submissions OR have only the first submission to be the final submission with no ability to update or re-submit before the final due date. Students can verify the "Submission Status" of their uploaded assignment file(s).

Regardless of the setting that an instructor chooses, students are responsible for ensuring that their assignment files have been properly submitted, and can easily verify this by noting the submission status (see the screenshots below).
