What to do when you can't see an assignment set by your teacher

Students with manually created accounts, at non synced schools, homeschools or those with tutors will only be able to see assignments if you have joined your teachers class.

For students at a synced school, you will have already been added to your classes and have access to assignments so if you cannot see them when you log in, there are a few possible reasons.

1. You're completing work on a duplicate account

Sometimes students have duplicate Seneca accounts, this might be an old school account or one with a personal email such as Hotmail or Gmail. Only work completed on the account linked to your class will show on your teacher account.

Try logging out of your account and then logging back in, ensuring you are using the correct school email and password or Microsoft/Google. If you are logged in to the correct account you should be able to see your class and the assignment in the 'Classes' and 'Assignments' tab on your account.

If you still can't see the class and assignment listed under 'Classes' or 'Assignments', ask your teacher to check your account email on their 'School' for synced schools or within their classes for non synced accounts.

2. The teacher has not set the assignment correctly

Teachers can see the list of students the assignment has been shared with in the 'Assignments' tab. Teachers can edit who the assignment is for by clicking 'Edit assignment'.

3. It's not after the start date of the assignment

The assignment may not be showing because it the 'Start date' set on the assignment hasn't passed yet.

Once the 'Start date' has passed, the assignment will be visible in your 'Upcoming assignments' section. 'Upcoming assignments' can be found in the 'Assignments' tab.

Once the 'End date' set on the assignment has passed, the assignment will move to your 'Past assignments'. You can still access past assignments but completing assignments after the end date will show that the assignment was completed late. If it has been more than 2 weeks since the end date, you will not be able to study the assignment.

Teachers can edit the start and end date set on the assignment by clicking on the assignment and then selecting 'Edit assignment'.
