Submit an assignment

If your instructor hasn't allowed multiple attempts, you may submit your assignment only once. Before you select Submit, be sure that you have attached any required files.
  1. Access the assignment. On the Upload Assignment page, review the instructions, due date, points possible, and download any files provided by your instructor. If your instructor has added a rubric for grading, you can view it.
  2. Select Write Submission to expand the area where you can type your submission. You can use the functions in the editor to format the text. You have creative control over how your content appears and the flexibility to change the order and appearance.

    Screenshot of the assignment submission page in blackboard. An arrow points to a button that reads "Write submission" above a text-box where a submission can be written. Another arrow points to a file attachment location with two buttons. The first reads "Browse My Computer" and the second reads "Browse Content Collection."

  3. Select Browse My Computer to upload a file from your computer.
    • Or - Drag files from your computer to the "hot spot" in the Attach Files area. If your browser allows, you can also drag a folder of files. The files will upload individually. If the browser doesn't allow you to submit your assignment after you upload a folder, select Do not attach in the folder's row to remove it. You can drag the files individually and submit again.

      You can use the file name or provide another name for the file.

  4. Optionally, type Comments about your submission.
  5. Select Submit. The Review Submission History page appears with information about your submitted assignment and a success message with a confirmation number. 
    • For assignments with multiple attempts, you receive a different number for each submission. If your institution has enabled email notifications for submission receipts, you'll also receive an email with your confirmation number and details each time you submit coursework.

Screenshot of the "Submission Success" message after a successful submission. The message will read "Success! Your submission appears on this page. The submission confirmation number is" and an alpha-numeric number is given. "Copy and save this number as proof of your submission"

Steps to check that your assignment has been submitted in Blackboard.
You can allow students to submit more than one attempt for an assignment.

Multiple attempts can help students stay on track, raise the quality of assignments, and ultimately improve student success and retention. Students can submit drafts and earn credit on improvements. Inform students which assignments allow multiple attempts, and what the expectations and grading policies are for each attempt.
