Submitting Assignments Using Assign2 (For Students)

Article Last Updated July 2022

This article describes how students can use the Assign2 external tool to complete online assessments. The tool allows students to complete solutions to long form problems on paper and then photograph/scan them for upload.

Submitting an assignment

Students can submit multiple files for each question using their devices (note that Assign2 submissions cannot be made through the eClass mobile app but should function normally in standard mobile browsers: Chrome or Safari.) Student file submissions are automatically re-sized on submission. The accepted file types for Assign2 are any image file (.png, .jpg, etc.) and PDF.


  1. Click on the Assign2 activity in your course.

  2. Take a photo/scan of your submission.

  3. Upload the image files into Assign2 by click on the upload area or by dragging-and-dropping your file into the box.

  4. You may preview your uploads and Save your upload(s).

    Changed in 2022, the Camera button in Assign2 is no longer available. However, you may still access Assign2 via mobile browser and upload a photo or other file.

    If the image uploaded is not the correct orientation, use the buttons (from order of left to right on the image below) to adjust it:
    - Counterclockwise
    - Horizontally flip
    - Clockwise
  5. Click Submit to preview your assignment upload and confirm your submission.
  6. Click Submit again to finally complete your assignment.
  7. The following message will appear when your assignment has been successfully submitted for grading.


Unsubmitting your work

You can withdraw your submission and re-submit it again anytime before the submission deadline. Note: After the submission due date has passed, you WILL NOT be able to review or edit your submission so ensure you have posted the solutions in the correct question response areas within the assignment. 

To withdraw your submission, click Unsubmit (in the previous screenshot above). If your browser resolution is too low, you may not see the button and will need to pan to the right to see it.


Viewing your submission after it has been graded

Once your instructor has released the grades, you will be able to view your graded submission in Assign2.

  1. Click on the Assign2 activity in the course.
  2. Scroll and view the grading for your assignment.

  3. Your Assign2 grade total is visible in your Grader Report by clicking Grades from the left-nav.
