Assignment Information

Find information about assignments, coversheets, forms and frequently asked questions.

Since the beginning of 2016, a large number of assignments are able to be electronically submitted via the Learning Management System, Canvas.

Paper based and other non-electronic submissions will continue to be delivered and collected from the designated on-campus locations. These should be submitted with the coversheet that will be available via the Cover Sheet link located in the left hand navigation bar in your Canvas course site. The coversheets will be individualised with a QR code that will be scanned on receipt.

All non-electronic assignments are handed in at the campus where you attend the course (unless your lecturer advises otherwise).

Assignment Submission

Non-electronic submission of Assignments

Faculty students across all campuses will generate their own individual coversheets for each assignment. Every coversheet will contain a unique barcode to facilitate prompt processing and automated emails to confirm receipt and advise when an assignment is ready to be picked up.

Find the answers to common questions about preparing and handing in your assignments where it has been indicated the submission is to be on paper. If you still have questions please contact foedassignments@auckland.ac.nz.

Electronic Submission of Assignments

All electronic submission of assignments must be uploaded to an assignment dropbox on Canvas, Moodle, or Turnitin as assigned by your lecturer. You will be notified at the beginning of your course that the submission of assignments is electronic. You will also be notified about how you will receive your marked assignment back. Usually online submission means your marked script will be made available to you online. Information will be provided as to how to upload your assignment and how to access your marked script online from the Course Director. No coversheet is required for electronic submission. The submission times of 12:30pm for undergraduate and 4:30pm for postgraduate level 7 coursework apply to submission of online assignments.
