Viewing and/or Downloading Assignments


Students can submit assignments by uploading files, or creating documents in BQ Docs. Instructors can view these assignments in the browser, or they can download the originally submitted files. 

Viewing Assignments in the Browser

When students submit an assignment, a blue document icon appears on the object. 

When that object is opened, the roster will display check marks next to students who have submitted assignments. A green check mark means the assignment was submitted before the due date, the red check marks means that the assignment was submitted late. 

Click on a student for more information, then click on the document icon with the number of submissions in blue. 

The expanded view shows all of the documents submitted by that student for that assignment. 

Click on the check mark to get the exact time when the student submitted the assignment. 

When you hover over the assignment, you will see some icons. 

  • Click this icon  to open the document. 
  • Click this icon  to display the history of that document (submissions, shares, share backs, etc.) 
  • Click this icon  to share the document back to the student for feedback. For a video demonstration of this, click here.
