Save Your Answers

If enabled by your instructor, you can save your progress on an assignment without submitting your answers. You can then view your saved work later when you are working on the assignment again. You might want to save an answer that you expect to revise later. You might also want to save your progress as you work on an assignment that allows only one submission.

Important: Your saved answers:
  • are not scored
  • do not receive credit
  • cannot be reviewed by your instructor
  • do not use any submissions

In order to receive credit, you must submit your answers before the assignment due date.
