As a teacher, how do I mark students' Google Classroom assignments using Lumin?

Lumin integrates with Google Classroom, allowing you to mark your students' turned-in assignments, and then sync the marked copy back to Google Classroom for grade dispersal.

  1. Firstly, ensure you have the Lumin app installed as a Google Drive extension. Find out how here.
  2. Go to Google Classroom and select the class/project where you issued the assignment.
