Information to note:

  • This setting only applies to future activities and/or a creation stage that has not passed the deadline in an active activity.

Allow Late Submissions - Students are able to independently submit Creations beyond the assigned due date.

  • You must select whether they are auto-approved or need to be approved by you.

    • Read below for more information

  • All submissions will be date-stamped and marked as late once approved.

  • Submissions made during the Evaluation stage may be auto-assigned to eligible Evaluators, or graded manually by you.

  • Submissions received past the Evaluation stage must be graded manually by you, as there are no eligible Evaluators.

NOTE: An eligible evaluator is any student that has not begun their evaluations yet.

Auto-accept Late Submissions - Students' late submissions will be automatically accepted without the need for your approval.

  • All submissions will be date-stamped and marked as late.

  • Eligible Evaluators will be automatically assigned if the Creation was submitted during the Evaluate stage. This means that some students may receive more evaluations to complete than what you assigned.

  • You can always reject a late submission at any time even after it's been accepted.

Needs Approval - Students’ late submissions will only be accepted if you choose to accept them.

  • You will receive an email notification prompting you that there are late submissions needing to be approved or rejected.
