Assignment: Granting Extensions and Revisions Moodle ISU
Instructors may need to grant an assignment extension or a revision for students. These options can be completed from the Grading summary page.
This guide will help you to:
Instructors have the ability to grant extensions for assignments. This will extend the due date for students to submit their work.
Extensions can be granted to as many students as needed. If the designated due date and time is the same for each student, the extension can completed all at once.
Instructors may allow revisions on assignments. The instructor can open the assignment back up for the student, however, it is highly recommended that the instructor use multiple attempts. With multiple attempts, instructors will have a history of submissions and feedback, which can be viewed at any time. This can aid in narrowing down any problem areas or confusion a student is having and will enable the instructor to give relevant feedback, clarify issues, and/or make recommendations. The students will then receive the instructor’s response and can make the necessary revisions. This process can be completed as many times as needed.
Note: You can also reach the edit settings page by Clicking on the assignment, and in the Administration block, Clicking Edit settings.
After the students have submitted their first attempt, you can review/grade it. For assistance with grading assignments, see Assignment: Grading Assignments
Once you have finished reviewing/grading each assignment submission, you can open a new attempt for the students to make their revisions.
Note: You will have needed to set Attempts reopened to Manually under the Submission settings to be able to Grant a New Attempt.
Note: This will automatically create a new attempt for the student. You can also add another attempt by selecting Update grade. This will take you to the Grader view page where you can view any previous attempts and submission information.
Note: This process can be repeated as many times as needed. Previous attempts will appear in the student Grader view page under Attempt settings.
