NOTE: This article is primarily for zyLabs for C, C++, Java, and Python. zyLabs for Web Programming may have some differences. zyLabs for MATLAB uses a tool provided by Mathworks and may have larger differences.
Instructors have the ability to view and download student submissions for any zyLabs being used in their zyBooks. Instructors can also give their TAs permission to view student submissions. This can be helpful for checking student code for style, running submissions through a plagiarism checker, or helping out a student who might be struggling.
To get started, navigate to a zyLab and scroll down towards the bottom of the page until you see the card labeled "Lab statistics and submissions". Click the "Show" button on the right to expand the card.
At the bottom of the card, there is a button labeled "Download submissions". If you click this button, you will get a zip file containing the most recent highest scoring submissions from each student who has submitted.
If you would only like to download the submission for one student, you can do so by selecting the student's name from the drop-down picker before clicking the download button.
Once you select a student, you will also be able to view and download their submissions in-app.
