This article includes instructions specifically for the new LMS. If you are not currently in the new LMS, please see our section on LoudCloud.
Almost every week, you will have an assignment due in your classes. The assignment submission process is quick and simple.
To begin, click on the assignment from the Weekly Calendar. Alternatively, you can select Path from the drop down menu in the upper left corner, which will allow you to see all assignments in the course.
Once you have navigated to the assignment, you will have a few options available for uploading your assignment:
- Browse from my computer,
- Import from Google Drive, and
- Import from Microsoft OneDrive.
To upload a file from your computer, click Browse From My Computer.
In the Upload File window, click Browse to locate your file(s).
After choosing the file(s) you would like to upload, you will see the name of your file appear in the box. Please note, you should avoid using special characters in the title of the file. If you have used a special character, we recommend renaming the file and then uploading the renamed file. If you need to attach more files, click Browse again and repeat the process. Once you have uploaded your file(s), click Upload.
If you need to upload more files at any time, just click Browse From My Computer and repeat the process. If your assignment requires to be submitted through the Citation Report system, click on Submit next to Similarity Index. If your assignment does not require submission through the Citation Report system, the button to do so will not appear.
The Submit button will become inactive after you click it. Don't worry, this means that your report is generating. Reports will typically return within 15 minutes to an hour.
"The System Tried to Submit this paper to turn it in. However since there was no successful submission after repeated attempts, this record has been marked as an error."
Your instructor will then need to reassign your assignment. We advise waiting for the report to fully generate before final submitting your assignments to avoid this error.
After your Citation Report has generated, you can view it by clicking on View Report.
This will open a new window in LopesWrite to view the Citation Report.
For more information on viewing your Citation Report, please see Citation Report FAQ. Please note, the instructional video embedded at the top of the page does not apply to the new LMS.
Once you are ready to submit your assignment, you will need to select the file(s) you wish to submit by placing a check mark in the box next to the file. Once selected, click Submit Assignment.
You will receive a message confirming you are ready to submit your assignment. If ready; click Yes.
Once submitted, you will receive a message confirming that the assignment was submitted successfully; click OK to dismiss this message. You will also see a time stamp for when your assignment was submitted.
To view your submitted file(s), click the number next to Files Submitted.
Deleting a Submission
While you are able to remove your submission, this does not reset your submission attempts. Once you final submit an assignment, it will be treated as your final attempt regardless of if you delete the attempt later or not.
