In Brightspace, instructors can set assignments to allow students to submit multiple times. To enable this on an assignment, please follow the series of steps below!

  1. Navigate to your course within Brightspace.
  2. Click on “Course Tools” in your course navigation bar.
  3. Select “Assignments” from the dropdown menu that appears.
    • If you are creating a new assignment, click the blue “New Assignment” button in the upper left.
    • If you are editing an existing assignment, find the assignment from the list that appears and click on the downwards facing arrow to the right of the assignment name, and click “Edit Assignment” from the dropdown menu.
  4. On the right hand side, click “Submission & Completion” to expand the category.
  5. Under the Submissions header will be three options; ‘All submissions are kept’, ‘Only one submission allowed’, and ‘Only the most recent submission is kept’. To allow students to submit multiple times, check the bubble next to ‘All submission are kept’.
  6. Click on the blue Save and Close button on the bottom right corner of the screen.

Students will now be able to submit to that assignment multiple times, and you will keep a record of each submission!
