How Do I Submit an Assignment on Behalf of My Group?

A group assignment is a way to for instructors to allow students to work together on an assignment and submit it as a group. Only one group member needs to submit the assignment on behalf of the group.

Any attachments added as part of a graded assignment submission are uploaded into your group files but are not counted against the group quota. However, once the file has been uploaded as a submission, you cannot delete the file.

The Group Assignment will outline what the group needs to do in order to complete the assignment. The instructor will put you in groups to work on the assignment.

When you have selected to Submit an Assignment, Curve will take you to this page. If you wish to upload a file and your Instructor allows for file uploads, you will want to click the Online Upload tab [1]. This will take you to a different screen, which will be discussed in the following sections.

If you wish to create a text submission, you can insert your content into the Rich Content Editor [2]. If your Instructor has not allowed for file uploads for this Assignment, you will only be able to use this method. If you would like to still upload an image or other media, you can use the Insert/Edit Media Content icon [3].

Once you are done inputting your Assignment Submission, you may click either of the Submit buttons highlighted on the right to submit your Assignment.

When you have located your Submission, you can drag it from your file explorer [1] and drop it onto the designated area. You can do this by holding your mouse button over the file [1] and then holding down your mouse button until you are holding the file over the submission box and then releasing it.

If you do not wish to drag and drop, you can select the Choose File option [2] to select the file from the file explorer directly.

Then, you will be able to access My Files [2]. Find the group folder with the assignment file and select it to upload to the Assignment.
