How to submit an assignment in LearnJCU Ultra
Assessment tasks instructions
Specific instructions for each subject's assessment tasks can be found in your 'Subject Outline'. Your subject coordinator will often place your Subject outline in the first folder of your Subject Content.
- Expand the assessment folder in your subject content and click on the assessment task you wish to submit.
- A side panel will open. Click on the 'View assessment' button (at the bottom of panel). This will open your assessment task, with description, instructions and submission area.
- Click on the 'Add content' button in the submission area to bring up an editor text box where you will submit your assignment.
- Click on 'Insert Local Files' (paperclip icon) in the text editor toolbar.
- Browse your file locations and select your assessment, click 'Open', rename it if you like, then click 'Save'.
- Once you see your file in the submission box, and you have checked everything is ready to go, click the 'Submit' button.
- Be sure to check your lecturers instructions for each assessment. In most cases you will be asked to submit a file rather than typing your content straight into the submission box. This helps the lecturer in marking and providing feedback on your assignment.
Note: Attempt is counted when you click on 'Submit' not 'View assessment'. When you exit the assessment item without submitting, the status of your assessment will be 'Draft saved on xx/xx/xxxx'.
How to name files
- Subject Code - Assessment Number - Surname (Example: MX1001_AssessmentTask2_Smith)
- Avoid using symbols or spaces, for example: SS0000 Assessment 1 Smith
Special consideration: When experiencing difficulties that affect your exam
If you experience difficulties or serious circumstances before or up to the day of your exam, which you believe may affect your ability to sit the exam successfully or perform at your best, you can apply for special consideration in the marking of your exam.

Deferred: When unable to attend an exam due to extenuating circumstances
