Scanning Physical Coursework Coversheets

This guide covers the process to be followed by administrative staff for scanning in coversheets for physical coursework. Coversheets will be handed into a school reception or other collection point with relevant physical coursework.

Once the grade is entered and the ‘Submit grade’ button is clicked, the grade will appear in the correct spot in the assignment grading area.

Resubmissions: to resubmit coursework select ‘Reverting [the] submission to draft’ via a
submission’s ‘Edit’ menu.
Virtual coversheet scanning: administrators can scan a coversheet without printing it by logging in as a student and printing their coversheet to your screen and scanning the barcode.
