About assignment submissions and Brightspace ePortfolio

Brightspace ePortfolio items that learners submit to an assignment are treated as unique objects; they do not change when the original item changes. This allows you to assess or grade submissions without worrying about learners revising their work.

Assignments can be associated with a competency or a grade book item in Brightspace Learning Environment. You can also attach feedback or comments to specific submissions.

If you select Allow users to add this folder to their ePortfolio on an assignment's Edit Assignment page, a user can add their submission with your feedback to their Brightspace ePortfolio. This allows them to continue improving their work while maintaining a copy of how the item appeared at the time of assessment.
