Revert File Submission to Draft

Keep the following in mind:

  • Online Text can be edited again by the student as long as the assignment is still available
  • After the assignment Due date arrives the instructor can only give comments and a grade.
  • Assignments with uploaded files, may allow the student to submit multiple drafts and receive comments from the instructor while the assignment is still open. (as long as they do not submit for marking)
  • Students may submit the files for final grading before the Date Due arrives if the Submit (file) button has been enabled.


The instructor may want to Revert the submission(s) to draft to have the student complete additional work, or the student has submitted the file for final grading by mistake.

  3. Select the appropriate student(s).
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the grading page and choose Revert submission to draft status from the drop down menu.
