Submit for Assessment is a digital submission service for uploading and submitting candidate work, which is currently available for Cambridge Nationals – take a look at our short video.
Submit for Assessment is one of the services available via our single sign-on service, My Cambridge.
Log into Submit for Assessment. You can either do this by logging into My Cambridge at sso.cambridge.org and clicking on the ‘Submit for Assessment’ tile or by going directly to Submit for Assessment at submitforassessment.cambridgeassessment.org.uk
If one of the links above doesn't work, you may not have permission to access Submit for Assessment.
If this is the case:
After you log in, you will see a Welcome page, choose OCR and click 'Continue'.
You will then see the home page which shows the assessments you can upload files for. Choose an assessment by clicking on it.
Choose the component. The number of candidates, the accepted file types and the date by which the files should be submitted are shown.
The next screen you see will be where you upload files. To go back to any previous screen, use the breadcrumb trail at the top of the page.
All candidates entered for the assessment will appear in descending mark order. The first candidate will already be open.
If you need to (or can) submit any forms or documents with the sample, there is an area for this above the list of candidates.
Using the box and links at the top of the list, you can:
The assessment may be split into sections of evidence that need to be uploaded.
For each section, the accepted file types are listed.
If multiple files can be uploaded for that section, this is stated next to the title. You can select and upload multiple files at the same time.
The indicator at the top right shows how many files have been uploaded for the candidate.
The icons that appear next to each file show the actions you can take. For example, the 'View' and 'Delete' icons appear in grey if you haven’t uploaded a file.
For Creative iMedia, IT, and Engineering Design, Manufacture and Programmable Systems, please remember to zip your students' folders before uploading files to Submit for Assessment. This is necessary so that folder structures are retained.
Although not required, you can also use zipped folders for Child Development, Enterprise and Marketing, Health and Social Care, Sport Science and Sport Studies.
Upload files to evidence sections. There are two ways to do this:
Upload progress is shown on the left of the page. You can upload another file when others are in progress, either for the same candidate or a different one.
Files are checked for viruses. When this finishes, each file appears with its name and the date and time it was uploaded. The 'View' and 'Delete' icons become available.
When all expected files for all sections have been uploaded, the file indicator will turn green.
If you do not have any files for a section of evidence, click the 'Missing' icon. Please make sure you follow OCR procedures about lost, missing, damaged or incomplete work.
When you have uploaded all files expected for the sample, you can send the sample for moderation by clicking 'Submit'.
You need to read the information about centre authentication, internal standardisation and use of candidate work. Tick the box on each page to show you understand in order to move the next step.
Click 'Submit'. A confirmation page will appear. When you close this, the screen will show that the sample has been submitted.
There are a couple of other features you might find useful. However, please use them with care.
If you have any extra files for a candidate that aren’t to be considered as part of their evidence, you can upload them as supporting material. The upload works in exactly the same way. Note that the system automatically renames uploaded files with a unique name of the form:
For example: 01_3357_R085_01_98765_1005_Supporting_14_01_2021_12_14_11
The 'Bulk upload' option allows you to upload files for a number of candidates in one go. To use this, you will need to have named the files in a certain format in advance.
This may not be suitable to use in all circumstances, for example, if the naming of files by candidates forms part of the assessment.
For details, see the help information that appears when you click 'Bulk upload files'.
Some supporting information is available from the Help button that appears at the top of every page. This includes information about the file types and sizes accepted.
