Moodle Assignment

Moodle enables you to submit assignments online. You must submit all parts of your assignment prior to the assignment deadline. Ensure you are familiar with your School’s policy on assignment submission prior to undertaking an assignment. Please ensure that you give yourself adequate time to submit your assignment online. We recommended putting aside at least 15 minutes to submit your first assignment online. For subsequent assignments, make sure you give yourself at least 10 minutes before the deadline to submit your assignment.

Go to:

Submitting your coursework to a Moodle assignment

  • From your Dashboard, go to My courses


  • Select your unit where you have to submit your assessment.


  • Go to the Assignment activity.


  • Click on “Add submission


  • Click on the file icon to upload your complete assessment files.

  • Once the files are uploaded, click the “Save changes” button

Note: Your submissions are not marked if your submission is in draft or until you haven’t hit the “Submit button”.

  • Click on the “Submit” button

  • Tick the Confirm Submission statement and click “Continue

You have successfully submitted your assessment!

Editing your Moodle submission

If you have submitted a wrong file in your submission by mistake or if you would like to edit your submission before you trainer marks it, you will need to ask your trainer to revert your submission so that you can make the changes. After you have hit the submit button, you will no longer be able to edit or change your submission.

After your trainer has allowed a new submission or if you are trying to change your submission, please follow the below steps:

  • Click on Edit submission button.

  • Select the file that you want to remove.

  • Click on delete.


  • To add a new file, click on the “Add…” icon.

  • After you have made the changes, click on “Save changes” button and click on submit for your trainer to mark it.

Note: Your trainer cannot mark your submission if your assessment is in Draft mode.
