New to Teams: View assignment history and hand in student work in Teams  

The ability to hand in work on behalf of students in Microsoft Teams Assignments has been long-awaited by teachers, alongside being able to view assignment history of individual students. 

In this guide, we show you how to view assignment history and submit student work as a teacher in Teams Assignments.



How to view assignment history in Microsoft Teams Assignments. 

Viewing assignment history is particularly useful as it helps you as a teacher get an overview of where the student is with the assignment – whether they’ve viewed the work, if they’ve attempted to complete it or if they need more guidance.  

It also cuts out the excuse of “not knowing about the homework”, because you can now see if they really viewed the task or not.  

  1. Go into one of your assignments in Teams and view the list of students who have been set this work. 
  2. Select a student to open up their assignment. 
  3. In the left-hand side marking panel, select View History. This brings up an overview of where the student is with the assignment.
