❗ Note: 'Google Docs' must be selected as the Submission Type in the assignment options. ​This feature is not recommended for students using iPads.

Students will see their Google Doc when they open the assignment.

💡 Tips!

  • Click inside the Google Doc to type. They can access the toolbar to use Google's built-in tools such as voice-to-text, word count, and more.

  • Students can use the Google Doc in fullscreen by clicking the opposing arrows as shown below.

  • To return to the assignment, they can click 'Check & Submit'.

Where can students find their GDoc in Google Drive?

Google Docs created in a Writable Assignment will be titled "Writable - ASSIGNMENT TITLE". Students can easily search by keyword "Writable" to locate the docs.

Note: Students should never delete a Google Doc created in a Writable assignment. This will cause them to lose their writing in the assignment.
