Google - Make a copy (learners)

If the 'make a copy' option is enabled in an assignment, a copy of the attached google document will be created for you to make a submission inside that document and you don't need to upload a separate document for making a submission. The copy will be created as soon as you click the "Take now" button of the assignment. In case the 'make a copy' option is enabled in multiple google documents, you will see copies of each of them in different tabs on your assignment submission page.

This article will guide you on:

Attempting an assignment in which 'make a copy' is enabled for some google documents but not all

1. You can attempt an assignment in which 'make a copy' is enabled for some Google document while some other documents (Google docs or file attachments) are simply attached to the assignment for reference. Just the difference being that the copies of only the Google documents with 'make a copy' enabled will be created.

For example, in the following assignment, two Google docs have 'make a copy' enabled which means their copies will be made for you in your Google Drive to make a submission (annotated with number "1"). Whereas, one Google doc and a PDF file attachment are attached to the assignment for your reference and whose copies will not be made for your submissions (annotated with number "2").

2. You can expand the attached files and Google documents inline or open them in a new tab as per your requirement.
