Instructors need flexibility to differentiate assignments amongst sections, deciding on a section-by-section basis which are required to complete specific assignments. This will enable instructors to vary the learning experience by section while still enjoying the advantages of managing all sections of a given course in a single Canvas course.


User goals

As an instructor:

  • I can require students to complete a given assignment or not on a section-by-section basis
  • I will see each assignment in a course as a column in the gradebook; for a given assignment, the cells for students who do not have to complete the assignment will be greyed out and uneditable


As a student:

  • I won't see assignments I'm not required to complete
