Is there any way on the new gradebook the late policy could be a ONE time only impact (not daily or hourly)? I don't want it reduced by 10% per day. I want assignments to reduce by 10% total.
Hi, Tracey, I actually think this is possible to accomplish with existing New Gradebook features by setting the lowest possible grade in conjunction with the late policy. Have a look at How do I apply a Late Submission policy in the New Gradebook? with special attention to this part:
...you can define the lowest possible grade that can be given to a student. For example, if the Late Submission policy is set to deduct 10% per day for late submissions, and a student submits 8 days late to an assignment worth 10 points, the student's grade would be 2 points if they were awarded full credit on the assignment (8 days late x 1 point deducted per day = 8 point Late Penalty). However, if the Lowest grade possible is set to 60%, the student's grade will be adjusted to 6 points.
In your scenario, you'd set the lower threshold at 90%. But I haven't actually tried this, so I'm curious to know what you think.
Also, as this idea goes forward for voting, you might also want to follow a related idea, Separate Late policies for individual assignments .
