It might happen that you can't see an assignment your teacher has set for you.

This can happen for a few different reasons:

1. You're completing work on a duplicate account

Sometimes students have duplicate Seneca accounts without realising. Only work completed on the account linked to your class will show on your teacher account.

You should try logging out of your device. If you are logged in to the account linked the correct account, you should be able to see your class and the assignment in the 'Classes & assignments' tab on your account.

If you can't see the class and assignment listed under 'Classes & assignments', try logging out and logging in with another email address. Or ask your teacher to check your account email on their 'Manage students'.

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 'Classes & assignments' tab.

After 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.

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

4. Try hitting refresh

If you haven't refreshed their page in a while, you will be viewing old data.

Teachers and students can solve this by refreshing their page. to see the assignment if it has just been added.
