Review Submission History page

To review your grade and feedback, select the same link in your course that you used to submit your assignment. The Review Submission History page appears. If you uploaded a file, it automatically opens in the browser.

If your file doesn't open automatically in the browser, your institution hasn't turned on inline viewing.

Point to a comment icon to view comments your instructor provided. Select highlighted text to see if your instructor provided a comment. You can also zoom in and out, and navigate to other pages in your file.

You can also download and print the file from the menu in the inline viewer. Annotations won’t appear in the downloaded or printed file.
