Video

The video below explains how to submit to a studentcentral submission point. Written instructions are also included on this page

Step 1

 

  • Find your Assignment submission point in the module or course area on studentcentral. This is usually in a menu item called Assessment. Ask your tutor or course administrator if you are not certain.

 

  • Click the assignment submission title.

 

 

 Step 2

 

  • In the Upload Assignment page that opens, review any Assignment Information shown (e.g. Due Date or instructions)
  • Under Assignment Submission, you have two choices.
  • You can click 'Write Submission' and type your assessment directly into studentcentral. This should only be used if your tutor has specifically asked you to do so.
  • You can also click 'Browse My Computer' and select a file from your computer to upload. 
  • In the pop up window that opens, find and select the file from where it’s stored (e.g. on your computer or a memory stick). Click the Open (MAC) or Choose (PC) button to attach the file.
  • Note: You can repeat this process to attach multiple files for submission. You can also click 'Do not attach' next to the file(s) you want to remove.

 

 

 

Step 3

  • There is a comments section if you wish to make a comment for your tutor to see. Please note that if you require an extension or wish to submit mitigating circumstances this should be done according to your school's guidelines.
 
  • Click the Submit button to complete the process.

 

 

  • Be patient while your file uploads, depending on the size of the file and the speed of your Internet connection this may take a little time.
  • You are then taken to the Review Submissions History page where your submitted assignment is shown on screen for review. A purple success message is shown at the top of page confirming the submission and this contains a copy of your unique submission confirmation number. This number is included on your digital receipt which you can view at any time by going to the My Grades area of the module. You will also receive an email copy of this receipt. 

  • Click OK to exit.
