Using MarkUs

If you encounter a "Login Failed" message, check that you meet the above three criteria before contacting course personnel.

Submitting Assignments

To submit files for Assignments, follow the instructions below.

  1. On your MarkUs homepage, click the assignment name to go to its submission page.
    Submissions
    This box shows you how many files you have submitted and how many of the required files you are missing. The Missing Required Files will initially be equal to the number of files you have to submit. As you submit the properly named files, this number will decrease.
    Assignment Rules
    This box has the assignment name, due date, and the names of the required files for the assignment. You must name your assignment submissions as indicted by the list: a lowercase a followed by the assignment number, then a lowercase q followed by the question number. The file extension must be .rkt. For example, for Assignment 2 Question 3, your file should be named a2q3.rkt
  2. Click the "Submissions" tab at the top of the page.
  3. Click "Add A New File". A new row will be added to the table. Click "Choose File" or "Submit" in the new row. (The button's name will depend on your web browser.) In the window that appears, browse to where you have saved your file and select it. Click the SUBMIT button.
  4. Your submitted file will now appear in the table. Check that the filename is correct. If you click on the filename, you will see the contents of the file. You should check that the contents are correct, and that you have submitted what you wanted to submit.

It is best to submit each file individually (add a single file and submit, then repeat for all the files you have). While you can submit all your files at once, there have been instances in the past where the files were not properly submitted.

Replacing a file

You can only replace a file with one that has the same name.
Warning: Do not use Internet Explorer to replace files. It will appear as though the change has gone through when it has not. Your files will not be replaced.

Deleting a file

If you have submitted the incorrect file, you can delete it by selecting the "Delete" box for the file and then clicking SUBMIT. This is also an alternative way to replace a file: delete the file you want to replace and submit the correct version/file.

Viewing Assignment Marks and Results

Once marking for an assignment is completed, you can see your mark for each assignment on your MarkUs home page. For a more detailed breakdown of your mark along with marker comments, click the "Results" link.
