To submit an assignment in Google Classroom, you’ll first need to navigate to the “Classwork” section. You can then find your assignment and attach your work. 

From there, it’s as easy as turning it in. Google Classroom also allows users to unsubmit their assignments if you need to make changes or leave a private comment for a teacher about the status of your work. 

It’s important to note that if you don’t click “Turn in” after you attach your work, it won’t be submitted. To verify the status of your assignment, double-check to see if it is labeled as “Turned in.” 

When submitting assignments to Google Classroom on mobile, you’ll also need to make sure you have the iPhone or Android app installed. You can search and download Google Classroom through the app store on your phone. 

Here’s how to submit an assignment on Google Classroom.

  • Note: You can add a link to a Drive document or attach a file from your computer. You may also start an assignment here by creating a new document, slide, sheet, or drawing on this page. 

7. To leave a private comment for your teacher, enter it in the appropriately labeled text box on the right. Then click the small triangular “paper airplane” icon to post it. 

8. Next, click “Turn in” or “Mark as done” to confirm your submission and change the assignment status to “Turned in.”

  • Note: If your teacher has assigned a collaborative document that you worked on or another kind of outside assignment, you may see “Mark as done” instead of “Turn in.”
