Assignments in Canvas are any online activity submission that is graded by the instructor. Assignments include Quizzes, graded Discussions, and online submissions (i.e. files, images, text, URLs, etc.) There are multiple ways to submit your Assignments.
Submit your assignment
Select the assignment that needs a submission.
Click the +Submit Assignment button.
Select submission type tab (File Upload, Google Doc, Text Entry, etc.)
Click the Submit button.
Wait until you see the Submission ✓Turned In! message.
When submitting a Canvas assignment on time (before the due date), you will see a "confetti celebration." You will not see a confetti celebration animation when submitting a Canvas Quiz or posting to a Canvas Discussion.
