For students, Microsoft Teams Assignments is a powerful tool for managing schoolwork, staying organised and keeping track of homework grades and feedback.
In this guide, we run through the basics of Microsoft Teams Assignments for students, from getting notified about your new assignments and accessing resources to completing homework and viewing teacher feedback.
View your assignments in Microsoft Teams.
There are a few ways you can view your assignments in Microsoft Teams:
View assignments for a specific class in Teams.
Go to the Class Team of the class you want to view assignments for and tap the Assignments tab.
View all your upcoming, past and completed assignments.
Go to the My Teams toolbar on the left-hand side of your screen and select Assignments.
From here, you can select Upcoming, Past due and Completed to see your assignments.
Notifications about new assignments in Teams.
You should be notified in your Activity feed whenever a teacher sets you a new assignment. Tap the assignment in the Activity feed to view it.
Completing an assignment in Microsoft Teams.
Open your assignment to view all the details and resources provided by your teacher. This could include a set of instructions/description of your assignment, attached reference materials/worksheets and the due date and time.
If the assignment is being graded, you can view how many points are available, plus the rubric (marking scheme).
If your teacher has attached a worksheet or template for you to work from, you can click on the attachment and work directly in Teams.
If you need to add files or documents to complete your assignment, tap Attach (paperclip) and you have the choice to:
- Upload a file from your device.
- Attach a file from OneDrive.
- Attach a file from another Teams channel.
Submitting an assignment in Microsoft Teams.
When you’re happy with the work you’ve done, you can submit your assignment by tapping Turn in in the top right-hand corner.
View feedback and grades for your Assignment.
You can view your grades and feedback on your work by going to Assignments and then selecting Completed.
If your homework was graded with points, you can see these on the right-hand side.
If your assignment contains any feedback, you can see a small feedback bubble.
Tap the assignment to find out more about your feedback. You can also select Rubric to see how your work has been marked against the marking scheme.
Sometimes your teacher may leave feedback on the document itself.
View all your grades from one class.
Go to the class in Teams you want to view grades for and tap Grades to bring up a grid of all the work you’ve completed for that class, whether you’ve turned it in on time and any feedback/grades from your teacher.
