When publishing tasks on Show My Homework, we have various different submission methods you can choose from:

  • Online Submission via SMHW

  • Class Submission

  • Other

You will select your preference when setting the task by using the 'How should students submit this task?' drop down menu. It's important that you consider the kind of task you are setting and how you'd like students to engage with it when making your decision here; for more information on each submission method, please read more below.

Online Submission via SMHW

  • Allows students to submit their work online via the app or the browser

  • Students who submit online before the due date instantly receive a 'Submitted' status

  • Teachers are notified when work is submitted

  • Students who do not submit online before the due date will automatically receive a 'Not submitted' status and associated notification is sent to student and guardian

  • Students who submit after the due date will automatically receive 'Submitted late'

  • Staff can manually add submission statuses at any time

  • Staff can then assign grades and send comments to students if desired

Class Submission

  • Students are not able to submit their work on Satchel One online via the app or the browser

  • Students are required to submit their work in-class / via other means

  • Students will receive no automatic submission statuses

  • Staff must manually apply submission statuses and grades should they wish to communicate these to students and guardians

Other

  • Students are not able to submit their work on Satchel One online via the app or the browser

  • Allows you to redirect (or 'signpost') students to another submission method you'd prefer them to engage with

  • This could be you requesting that students email their work to you, complete an activity on another online learning tool etc.

  • Satchel One does not synchronise with any 'Other' platform at this time and therefore any work submitted / scores achieved on another platform will not be surfaced in Satchel One's assessment area. Should staff wish to record marks in Satchel One they would be required to do this manually via the 'Assess' area

💡 Top tip: The Submission methods list can be customised by Administrators. You can add new options or set up a default method. Learn more.
