General Comments:

When you have answered all the questions on an assignment and are ready to submit your work for grading, click the link Submit for grading at the bottom of the assignment. Note: To insure that your submission is recorded, wait for a reply from the server. Do not click more than once on the submit button, since this will result in the waste of one of your allowed submission attempts.

You will receive immediate feedback in the form of a grade and detailed marks, i.e., which responses are correct and which are wrong.

You may resubmit your answers, editing your most recent submission by changing just the wrong answers. Leave your correct answers as they have already been entered. When the editing process is complete, click on the Submit for grading button. Your grade for the assignment will be the grade received for the last submission of answers by the deadline.

If you decide to log off and resubmit your answers at a later time, you will see the answers from your last submission when you log on again and bring up the assignment. At this point, the editing process will be the same as that described in the preceding paragraph.
