Select the groups' submission that you wish to view and select the it from the 'Separate groups' drop-down menu.  You will now only be presented with the members of that group and their submissions or non submissions.


Step 5: Selecting members of the group

By clicking the 'select' tick box at the top of the table, you can select all the students and their submissions of that page. 

Hint: if there are plenty of students in that groups displayed in different pages, you can either go to different pages with the same process below to download the submissions, or you can choose to display all students in one page and download the submissions.



You can choose to show all students of that group by clicking 'all' in 'assignment per page' setting in 'Options'.


Step 6: Downloading the submissions

Now go down to the 'With selected' drop-down menu click on the 'Download selected submissions' and then click 'Go' you will now download all of the submissions within the selected group.
