How do I mark an assignment in Teams for Education?

Educators who have not had training in our Microsoft teams for education course always ask about how they can mark a submitted assignment in Teams for Education. Educators can find themselves unsure as to where they go to mark their assignment and how to return the marked assignments to users.

Our videos below demonstrate how a user can mark an assignment using the desktop client.


  • First Navigate to the class you wish to give the assignment to from the teams icon in the sidebar.
  • Select the assignments tab in the class team.
  • Select the assignment that you wish to mark.
  • locate the user who you wish to mark and select the link in the status column to see their submission.
  • If a marking rubric has been attached then select it from the sidebar on the right-hand side to view the rubric.
  • Using the marking rubric select the appropriate grade for each question in the rubric and provide any appropriate feedback.
  • Provide any overall feedback and then press return to return the marked assignment to the user.
  • This is one of the topics covered in our Microsoft Teams for education Course. Take the course today to learn everything you will need to know to manage a class effectively and use Microsoft Teams for education to its full potential.

    Microsoft Teams for education is more than just a communications tool and can be a vital way of providing a reliable method of online learning to pupils. However it was originally designed to be a powerful collaboration tool for business users within an organisation. If you are interested in learning to use Microsoft Teams for business uses rather than as an educator then our Teams End User Course can be of use in teaching a novice user how to utilise Teams in their day-to-day activities as part of a larger organisation. In addition, we offer our Microsoft Teams Admin Course that teaches a user to be able to create new teams and administer existing teams for your organisation so that they can collaborate seamlessly.
