Submitting an assignment in Moodle

From January 2019 assignments are submitted online only*. There is a slight change to the process, but by following this guide and the instructions onscreen you will have submitted your assignment in no time!  

Please make sure you have read the Student Assignment Checklist 

Once you have submitted your assignment, it will show as 'Queued' and you don't need to do anything else.  Moodle will then automatically submit it to Turnitin, and will display the originality percentage once it has been processed. 

*Please note that dissertations still require a paper copy to be handed in as well as being submitted online.



 

  • On the module Moodle page, navigate to the submission link. The icon is a hand holding up a piece of paper:
  • You can also find the assignment links in the left hand navigation menu, open/close the menu by clicking the 3 vertical lines in the top left of the screen, under the 'Activities' heading click on 'assignments'.  Illustrative image
