Receive notification when an assignment or quiz is submitted

Most courses have this enabled, so that the teacher will receive an email any time a student submits an assignment or a quiz attempt. You can check this by going to Course Administration -> Users -> Permissions. Ctrl-F to find “notification”, and check that both “Receive grader submission notifications” and “Get a notification message when an attempt is submitted” list Teacher under Roles with Permission.

If it is not enabled in your course, send a Help Desk ticket requesting that the role of Teacher be added to these permissions.
