Viewing past assignments and submissions can be a very useful feature if students need to refer to past work for resume purposes or to verify an assignment submission. In Canvas, students can view such past work even from concluded courses. This page will describe how to view such submissions as well as how to download them if keeping these in a different location is desired for future reference after students graduate. 

Viewing All Submissions

  1. From your global navigation, select "Account".
  2. Select files.
  3. The file "Submissions" will contain all the submissions ever submitted to Canvas, grouped into files according to which course they were submitted to.

Downloading All Submissions

When you are no longer enrolled in SPU courses for the current and next two quarters, you will be removed from the Canvas user database and will no longer be able to access your submissions. If you wish to keep your submissions, they must be exported as a zip file before this occurrence.

  1. Follow the "View All submission" instructions above.
  2. Click to the right of the file or submission name to highlight it, and an action bar will appear at the top of the page.
  3. Select the download icon from the action bar.
