Viewing dropbox folder file submissions

The Dropbox Folders page provides a summary of the Total Files, Unread Files, Flagged Files, and Due Date for each dropbox folder. Click on a folder to navigate to its Folder Submissions page to view submitted files.

You can also access users' folder submission history from the Evaluate Submission page if they have submitted at least one file to the folder. A submission history enables you to quickly view a list of all files a student has submitted including:

  • deleted files
  • re-submitted files
  • every submission's date and time
  • an indication that the student has read the comments and feedback for a submission
  • comments left by the student
