Automatic zero in gradebook after a date

    I would like to throw this out there...


    What if an assignment could automatically be scored as a zero if not completed by a specified date? This would be a huge time saver for everyone:


    Student: this would allow their grade to accurately reflect true grade (if teacher is behind)- will encourage/motivate, etc.

    Teacher: huge time saver! Helpful for schools/teachers with students who self pace

    Academic Adviser: view true and accurate grade for reporting


    Currently, a teacher can default an assignment grade (for all or some students) to a zero. But what if on the same prompt (window) it asks for a date. When the date passes, a zero in placed in the grade. This gives the teacher control of when it happens and it's easy to find.


    Just an idea.
