Configure Show My Work for Assignments
You can configure Show My Work in your assignment or assignment template settings, for example, to require Show My Work for all questions.
Show My Work settings for individual questions override the settings for the assignment.
- Do not change Show My Work settings for an assignment that your students have started.
- Do not enable Show My Work for an assignment (like a quiz or test) for which you want to use LockDown Browser® to prevent cheating. Your students could use Show My Work to display files from their computers while working on the assignment.
