This happens when "Track Changes" has been turned on in the assignment template (as you can see in the following image)...

How track changes appear on a page

Here's how to fix it...

If you have already started typing into a template that you downloaded

In Microsoft Word, go to the "Review" section and "Accept All Changes" (as you see in the image below)...

Accept All Changes

This turns anything red and underlined into proper text. Then turn off "Track Changes" for the entire document...

Turn off Track Changes

You should now be able to proceed with your assignment.

If you haven’t started typing text into the document

Turn off "Track Changes" for the entire document...

Turn off Track Changes

You should now be able to proceed with your assignment.
