Note: Repeat the same steps for making a Google document submission to open-ended questions in a quiz.
1. Can I make multiple Google document submissions for an assignment.
Yes, you can. This depends on the maximum no. of submissions setting set by your instructor for that assignment. For example, if the assignment has 3 maximum submissions and the student has made none, then you can make Google document submissions upto 3 times.
So, Teamie keeps track of all 3 submissions you have made, and instructor can switch between the different attempts using the attempts drop-down in the top left corner of the learner's submission grading page.
2. Can I upload multiple files as a single submission by the student?
Currently, Teamie allows you to only pick one file for submission. If you wish to submit multiple files, in a single attempt, then you can zip the files and upload as a single zip file.
If you wish to upload multiple files as separate attempts, then you can repeat the process described above multiple times to make multiple submissions.
