Instructions for using the Assignment Tool

Follow the steps below in order to submit an assignment** in Blackboard:
  • Once in the course site, click on the name of the assignment that you wish to complete (this can be located in a folder or other area designated by your instructor).
  • Click on the assignment name, which is a link, to access the Assignment submission area. Note that your instructor may have provided you with specific instructions and requirements for submission.
  • To attach your file, click the Browse My Computer button (under Assignment Submission). This will allow you to locate and select your file.
  • Once your file is selected, click Open.
  • After you have attached your file and entered a comment in the Comments box (your instructor may also ask you to copy and paste your assignment in this text box), you have two options:
    You can click Submit to submit your Assignment to the instructor.
    You can click Save Draft to save your Assignment to send at a later time (note that the instructor will not receive the file until you click Submit).

**Note: Your instructor may use Assignments that also integrate plagiarism scanning through SafeAssign. This is an assignment that also scans submitted files for plagiarized material. If your instructor integrates plagiarism scanning, you will also need to check the box to agree to submit your paper to the Global Reference Database.
