Your guide to submitting your assignment

You’ve just finished your assignment that you totally didn’t start the night before. Because procrastinating is bad, right? Right.

All that’s left now is the easy part: submitting your assignment online.

How to submit

At Griffith, all assignment submission is online (yep, no need to come into the library, you can stay right there on your computer chair/bed, in your PJs).

Simply head to Learning@Griffith, load up your course site and locate the submission point (you’ll find it under the relevant Assessment folder in the left hand menu).

While the method of submission depends on what your course convener has chosen, the main two essay submission assessment tools used at Griffith are Turnitin and the Blackboard Assignment tool (this includes SafeAssign).

They’re as easy to use as Ryan Gosling is easy to look at–simply follow the prompts on the page. However if you need a little bit more help, you can find further information on these tools via the guides below:

The Assessment Submission and Return Procedures Policy states that for assessment tasks submitted electronically ‘the student is responsible for the files being able to be opened and viewed’. So once you’ve clicked the Submit button, it’s important to check your assessment has been uploaded correctly and that you submitted the correct file. It’s best to do this straight away, because sometimes the Submission Point may get closed later, after the due date for example. To do so:

  1.  1. In Turnitin, after you see the digital receipt popup window (and have printed/saved a copy), open the file to check it. From your Submission Inbox you can either click on the title of your file or on the pencil icon. Check that your file uploaded properly.
  2. 2. In the Blackboard Assignment, after you see the successful submission message at the top of the page, you will now be able to see the file you have submitted onscreen–take this chance to see that the file is present, and can be read (if it is a text file).

Get your digital receipt!

Once you’ve submitted your assignment, we really recommend you get a digital receipt.

Sometimes there may be glitches, so it’s best to ensure you have solid proof that yes, you did submit your assignment.

In Turnitin, when you have submitted successfully you will see a digital receipt appear in a popup window. It is a great idea to print and/or save a copy of this receipt.

In the Blackboard Assignment tool, when you submit successfully you will receive a ‘Submission received’ email. You can also check under the Submitted tab in your My Marks area to see submission receipts for any assignments submitted via this tool.

Further help

If you do encounter any issues during the submission process (or post submission), you can easily access the Support Centre by clicking the little red tag with ? at the top right of your screen, or contact the IT Service Centre (contact details at the bottom of the page) for further assistance.

The future is here! Assignment submission goes online in 2017.

Assignments. Not so long ago they were the bane of your existence. Many a late night was spent trying to put together a gazillion word essay with minimal research, maximum caffeine, and zero motivation.

But since you submitted your final paper in week 16, you haven’t given them a moments thought. In fact, you’ve mentally blocked out anything to do with essays, reports, case studies or critical reviews.

And you are probably wondering why we’ve brought up such a stressful topic, especially when you are smack-bang in the middle of exams.

While it’s old news to some of you, we still have some awesome news. Assignment submissions are going online in 2017! From Trimester 1, you can submit university assignments online through such channels as Turnitin, SafeAssign, or the Blackboard submission tool.

No longer will you have to wrestle your report from the printer, or remember to put on pants to hand them in at the library.

In the new year, you’ll just need to complete your assignment, select your online submission tool, click a few buttons, and puff, it’s submitted.

Keep in mind that some assignments may still need to be physically submitted to your school. See your course profile for more details.
